Re: 1/4 mile Jeep WK2 5.7 stock..

Good old fashioned stop clock to 100km/h. So 60mph should be only really .2 of a second difference at best.

We are talking about the Jeep grand Cherokee WK2 3125kg 5.7 hemi right? hehe ;)

As much as I'd like to believe that, if it was just as strong, how come they don't offer a winch mountable bar? ;)

Question Re: 1/4 mile Jeep WK2 5.7 stock..

Hey Mate,

how the hell are you getting 6.96 stock 0-100?

I have a 11' GC 5.7 which the website states does 0-100 in 8.8 and the very best I've got it to do is 8.6

Re: 2012 GC with two front hooks!

probably because the 2011 hooks are $150 from the states and cost you a mortgage from Jeep Aust compared to supercheap ;)
