I can overtake anyone i have EVER needed to on the highway. My little 4.7 will go 55-80 quicker than i even am looking for sometimes.
I think the issue we keep running into here is.. WHY... You guys like to race on the track... ok then.... the 4.7 sucks for that... but some of us don't need that kind of power.
I'm not sure why you wanted to know the HP of your truck when you yourself said it was "fun"..... but everyone starts arguing that the 4.7 is slow?? c'mon now guys... relative to what?
Agreed 100%. I passed up a HEMI wk for my 4.7, Why you might ask? 1, horrible gas mileage, 2, more maintenance, 3, it was $2000 more for the vehicle, 4 Higher insurance rates, 5, higher taxes and reg rates, 6, my balls are big enough with my 4.7 and 90% of people that hear my jeep dont know its only a 4.7. 7, i love driving my jeep and have plenty of fun driving it w/o the need for a bigger engine.
And i only have a gen 1 4.7. i was not that that amazingly noticeable when i drove teh gen 2 4.7
