possible, but expensive, and plenty of moding. Just find a carb 302 or 351, would be cool to see that though.

the 5.9 that was found in select grand cherokees, durangos, and the 5.9 dakotas?

cuz my friend has a grand cherokee with that motor, and it scoots. 0-60 in around 7 seconds. i could imagine how it would be in a light 2wd ranger :O

yea, the r/t dakotas will flat out run, and rangers are lighter than dakota's, so i'd assume it would be pretty quick

I know, but silverfox and djlmmndnsjdh said that he was talking about a 5.2? I don't understand why they thought he was talking about the 5.2?

They said 5.2 because he said the cherokee had the 5.9 but they were saying the cherokee had the 5.2 because the 5.9 didn't come in the 5.2 cherokee.
Confusingly clear up any confusion?

No, Bc there were 5.9 l Jeep Grand Cherokees. They don't seem to understand that 5.9 was offered in Jeep Grand Cherokee, Durango, Dakota r/t 1500,2500, and 3500
