He probably has a 4.7 HO engine, which has 30 more HP stock.

oh yeah, the Horsepower / Weight ratio is a big factor to consider especially if you have a quad cab.

My 2000 Grand Cherokee will eat my 2003 4.7 Dak alive. I put the HO cams in the Dakota....but it still can't touch the Jeep. I was assuming the Jeep was heavier than the Dodge (maybe it isn't). I couldn't figure it out either...the Jeep pulls sooo much harder off the line to about 60 mph - the Jeep peters out after then. I like to take the Jeep down to the local "rice-rocket" blvd cruising area here in St Louis, put it in low range and smoke the Hondas light to light!!

A friend of mine has a 2001 Cherokee Limited with FT 4wd. His Jeep feels faster than my 2003 Dakota with FT 4wd (we've never raced so I can't say for certain what one will do over the other). He's running 3.73s & I run 3.92s. When you step on the Jeep's accelerator pedal, it doesn't feel as though you have to get on it near as much as on my Dakota's pedal to get the same speed. My Dak is about 700 lbs heavier than the Jeep & my friend's Jeep has the standard 4.7 Both trucks definitely have plenty of go-power, though.

The HO jeep has higher compression, HO heads, and HO intake (and cams)... Adding just the cams will not give you the HP of the HO 4.7L

The Jeeps come with HO badging combined with the V8 badge on the liftgate. If it aint there, it's a regular 4.7, real easy to tell.

No word that Dode won't be useing a H.O 4.7 in there trucks?

I think that sucks! I mean, look at the weight deffence between the Ram and the Grand Gherokee!

Also, I hear that you have to use Higher grade gas just to get all the power out. Is that true?

Regular 4.7's have 9.0 compression ratio and no knock sensors; HO 4.7's have 9.7 c.r. and knock sensors. With the sensors, you probably could run regular octane in a Jeep HO, but premium gets the power out.

Crazy to think, here we are almost 20 years later. Crazy how
technology and motors have changed and what’s considered
“fast” nowadays.
