There is a god! I've been bickering about a lack of a stroker kit for awhile. $3300 isn't all that bad. Can't wait for the torque numbers.

If I'm looking at it right, that cam is an extremely minute change. Whats the stock JK rocker ratio?

If the numbers look like I hope, I'll be a serious contender for this, once I see a little time on a few of them at least.

I agree. I'd much rather build the 3.8L if I can.

Option to have it with compression set up for a supercharger - Now I am intrigued.

I would def. save my pennies for this over a supercharger, v8 is too $$ and there's no replacement for displacement.

so what is the new displacement with standard bore? Do they use a new Chinese crank or an offset ground stock crank? I don't see an aluminum flywheel being a benefit in rock crawling situations.

Definitely like to see more details.

Don't they make smaller pulleys for that?

At least crack a piston or something before buying a new bottom end.

I hope it works better than the stroker for the 4.0. I've been unimpressed with mine, and its done correctly.

You can't make chicken salad out of chicken shit. I'm still saving my money for a Hemi. Maybe Alasha's set-up with a supercharger and stroked it might feel like a V8, but by the time I buy and install both of those I'm looking at the price of a self installed Hemi.

And with an engine working well within it's design envelope, instead of one pushed far outside it. (i.e. much less chance of a kb under the hood)

It doesn't look like any grinding needs to be done on the block. I wonder how much more stroke we are looking at with the kit?
