    Saw your statement that said it is the same motor as the durango/dakota and i thought you would be interested/happy to hear that Jeep had a couple tricks up there sleave :)The following is from nagca.com (north american grand cherokee association)The 5.9 Limited was advertised as the "Worlds fastest sport utility vehicle" in advertisements that Jeep ran during 1998, and that was borne out by testing. A 1998 press release by Chrysler stated the following:The following is a summary of changes to Chrysler's engines for 1998:In the 5.9L V-8 engine (Grand Cherokee, Dakota and Ram pick-up, and Ram van), a new camshaft adds up to 15 bhp and the torque curve is widened to provide more responsive performance in the normal driving range for all models. In addition, specific to the Grand Cherokee, 15 degrees more spark advance (which requires premium fuel) and a 25 percent reduction in backpressure makes a total increase of 25 bhp over the current 5.2L engine. The cooling fan motor is now electric, eliminating a power drain of up to 20 bhp.The jeep 5.9 was actually rated at 255 HP and 350 torque. The performance increases of the greater spark advance and electric fan are some of the main reasons the 5.9 Limited performed so much better than the other Chrysler trucks with 5.9L engines. The magazine test results were impressive:1998 Jeep 5.9 Limited (Motor Trend Jan/98):0-50 - 4.90 sec.0-60 - 6.80 sec.0-70 - 9.20 sec.60-0 Braking - 126.00 ft.1/4 Mile - 15.20 sec.Slalom - 58.40 mphSkidpad - 0.74 g2000 AMG ML55 5.5L (Car

    I agree, that is one of the best looking 5.9's I've seen also. Mine is the stone white but I wish it was the platinum color like yours. Btw, thanks for the tire info. I priced them at my local Firestone and they are 195.99 ea., which isn't too bad.
