No, my post was to the OP, in response to the reluctance to go with the Hemi with 'the way gas prices are'.

Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Second Thoughts

well if you go for the street look you will never be close to being fast and if you lifted you will be able to make it through most of rough stuff and have some fun

Re: Second Thoughts

its a 3.7 with a QT1... throw a small lift on it, couple engine mods and call it a day. a 3.7 clone is redic, and plus maybe one day youll see a backroad you want to take and instead of worrying about chipping that front bumper you can go wherever you please. i dont plan on wheeling mine, but its a 4x4 and its a jeep and at this moment in time i want it lifted. looks great, rides great, etc..

Re: Second Thoughts

don't go any bigger than a 4" lift...esp with the 3.7...33's will prob be the biggest that engine can handle...anything bigger it's going to struggle, esp in offroad conditions.
