    2" Superlift kit. 315/ 70/17.
    If your asking about the Pentastar motors.
    I love it. Responsive. High HPs. Basically maintenance free, oil changes are a given.
    Are you curious about some thing specific?

    Given the choice the 3.6 will be the better engine but there are unique issues with each that need to be worked out or avoided at time of purchase (used). The 3.6 has the advantage of a better AT

    the 4.0L - a great engine - cant go wrong, an 2004 also a plus...
    Most important how is the AC working?

    Just ask if anything needed.
