first time jeep owner and liking it

so I picked up a 93 yj, 4.0 auto a weekish ago and totally like it. I purposely searched out an auto since I come from a fast sports car background of nothing but sticks and frankly, im tired of driving manuals. it has lots of miles but runs like a champ still. sitting in the corner of my garage awaits a 5.3 LS to replace that tired-ish inline 6 when that day comes! so don't be surprised to see a build thread in the future. but until then you can count on some very basic questions that my google friend hasn't answered as of yet...

Welcome Brent! I found this forum, even before joining, had more right answers than most others. But Google search for You-Tube videos of Jeep mods is awesome for inspiring modifications and spurring-on my artistic welding and fabrication skills.

I had that old 4.0L straight-six in my Grand Cherokee. Superb torque and OK power, but when I got the 5.7L Hemi in the new Jeep, WOW what a difference... 330 hp Jeep can pass anything but a gas station...

Sounds like a nice rig! Better cover that LS, that 4.0L might last a while.....

Welcome to the Forum! Lot's of great people and ideas here! And don't forget the Wave!

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
