Compared to the WJ it would feel like 400 hp, though.

I see that's a 2005, but still

I wonder if that LV3 4.3 V6 from the new Silverados would fit in my TJ. That 2.5 4 banger is sad.

Here you go Kip. This is the way to go. Ryan Saari did his own a few years back and it was a great job, but for those of us that are not as handy this is an option. http://www.mercedesdiesel4x4.com/

Back in the day they were swapping V10's into the TJ, and LS swaps are common, so I think it would fit great. Cheap cheap cheap to buy right now.

Only trouble with the Mercedes OM617 engine conversion is power. The OM617.91x engines were 90 HP, adding a turbocharger (OM617.95x) brings it to 120 HP. Extremely reliable, long lived, not too bad on service requirements. 3000 mile oil changes (8 quarts), 15,000 mile valve adjustments, and timing chain every 100,000 miles.

I had a new Hemi in an 08 Jeep Commander. Most fun car I have ever owned. Was absolutly stable at any speed and it would run 112.5 to hit the governor.
Even had a lifetime warranty. But it also had 12 computer talking to each other, and at time their comunications would break down. 16 sparkplugs a few you can't see. No major problems till it hit 100,000 mile. Bigest problem was not being able to put transfer case in neutral. In the shop 16 time, all covered by warranty, but never really resolved the issue. Ended up pulling my old 96 Cherokee because it was simple and always go in neutral. no computer to foul. Finally gave up and sold the Commander and bought a 04 grand cherokee with famous straight six, same engine that was in my 96 cherokee with close to 200k. Thought is miight be a little weak, but not.
That little six in 04 had 195hp I think. Still super simple. Easy and cheap to work on. The Grand it slightly bigger, more room and better ride at speeds.
if you off road, the cherokee is better, but highway use, the Grand is far superior. GC with 6 is only slightly heavier than the Cherokee.
Does not have the power of the Hemi, but just bone simple. Runs at highway/turnpike speed and never a lack of power.
I also have a 99 cherokee 6 cylinder. We have towed it too and put a lot of trouble free mile on it. With a little over 200k, it blew a head gasket. Well you can't find anyone to pull a head anymore, and it is about as simple as it get. Friend told me about a local guy that does some engine work, call him told him what I had. Said he did not want to get in a head. I mention it is the simple 6 cylinder, he said oh yeah, I will do that, and he did. Did not get hot, head clean, valves good. just cleaned up put it back on. $325.
Did I menton cheap? I don't think any vehicle has cheaper parts than a jeep cherokee/Grand. I friend bought some front end part for his GC.
Front drive axle with CV, new, less than $40. and no special tools to change it.
Mallie has helped me several times with XJ issues, He has owned several.
The manual transfer case is the best, Find a rust free Jeep Cherokee XJ station wagon to haul your stuff, any year and bring it back like an Ole Bird, Here are a few pic's from a recent repair, cheap and good for another 100K.
