What motor again? 4.0L? Plus, I think he's manual...so....doesn't take much to spin tires...it's called revving PAST 3000rpm then dumping the clutch. AND, sliding sideways everywhere...I HIGHLY doubt you are sliding sideways everywhere. I'm locked up and properly geared, 100k engine, and manual trans, and I dont slide sideways around everywhere...it just hooks the F up.
