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

Welcome to the 5.9 family! Sounds like you are on your way to having a fast niner. You may also want to check out thespeedfreaks.net lots of 5.9 on there.

Hahaha, Cheers!


Welcome to JG, look forward to seeing some pics of the niner. On of the finest Jeeps ever IMO!
