Hold on there gentlmen,cool your keyboards!
Remember I said "just for interest sake"? well thats what I meant,not for competition sake or to try to sway the jeep cult to the race track.
I was just genuinely curious about what say a 2001 TJ would do and mabe a 258 powered '82 with 2.73 gears,just for interest sake.
Dont mistake me for one second as a "track jeep" guy,quite the contrary,in fact my jeep won this years jamboree "crawl off"with its 360/TF727/4:1dana300/4.56/and cheating by airing down the 35'sto 6psi[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]/and turning the idle screw on the 2150 down to 450rpm.
I guess I'm one of those guys that wants thier jeep to run perfect enough to win the crawloff at 450rpm,and strong enough to conquer the tallest dune,and the deepest mud,all the while sporting a perfect driveline without even the hint of a leak,and still be able to run lower helldorado/sledghammer biannually without a scratch or a breakdown(seldom happens,but Ive got it down to a u-joint or outeraxleshaft,but I'm working on that)
Also this same jeep was the only one to climb "spiderhill"at the Rocky jamboree this year out of the six that tried (one rolled)and this BTW was not HP that conquered this hill,but rather a perfectly smooth idle and soft suspension good vehicle balance and aired down tires.
But anyway now its just pride talking,and you know what they say about pride,(its always fallowed by a fall[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
So NO I'm not promoting jeep dragging(tho I'm not opposed to those that do,just not on this bbs)I honestly asked for interest sake,but it was fun to read anyway[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
