Fast Friday: 1981 Jeep CJ-5 with AMC 360 V8!

This guy built up his 81 CJ-5, and stuck an AMC 360 in it with a T176 Transmission! It looks like a blast to drive.

According to the video, he has an Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold with a Performer 600cfm carburetor, the comp cams 268H Camshaft, with an almost stock ignition system.

Hopefully my 1965 Rambler project with the 360 V8 with AMC 291 small chamber heads I’m building will be just as fun to drive. I just can’t decide between an Auto or Manual.

1:27 in the video is the driving part. Man it looks like a blast!

The 2010/2011 Jeep Cherokee XJ?

Could there be a new compact SUV coming from the recently bought out Chrysler Group? More

specifically a 2011 Cherokee (not Grand?)

If you do some snooping around on the internet, you’ll see that the Cherokee wasn’t actually discontinued in 2001. Only in North America.

Up to 2005, it was produced in China, called the Jeep 2500 (because of its 2.5L 4 cylinder engine), and it even had its body style updated.

Go to allpar.com’s 5 year plan (http://www.allpar.com/corporate/chrysler-group/five-year-plan.html) , and you’ll see that there are two Jeep SUV’s (one is a Grand Cherokee, and one is smaller.) The White colored one looks like the China Jeep 2500.

Could this be the return of the Jeep Cherokee XJ? I sure hope so.
