just bought a 5.9 zj

just wanted to say hi and get known a lil here at the forum. my name is chris, I live in north texas and work for a performance fabrication shop in north fort worth. I just got home (at 4:30am) from picking up my GC limited 5.9 from san antonio (about 700 miles round trip) and I am glad to say the trip back was amazing not a single problem except the pesky dimmer switch. even got in a lil race with a charger r/t on the way home, got ahead by about a bumper before he backed off then blew past me a few miles later.
anyway the jeep has 160k miles with a decent amount of mods
ceramic headers
msd ignition
mopar intake manifold
180 thermo
full 3.5" exhaust
larger throttlebody
intake
and who knows what else i may come to find that wasnt listed. so here is a cheers to all the other jeep owners who would rather launch off a red light than climb rocks, i hope to get many pointers and previous knowledge to help make this lil jeep into a low 12 sec daily driver.

ps. ill post some pics after i get out and wash it tomorrow in the daylight

Hi Chris! Welcome to Jeep Garage

We had a 5.9 before our SRT. Awesome Jeep, and tons of fun to drive! Good luck with it.
