    "The 5.9 liter engine in stock form cranks out 245 hp and 345 ft. lbs of torque. It propels the 4200 lbs of luxury SUV from 0 to 60 in 6.8 seconds. 1/4 mile time is 15.2 seconds" (Motor Trend Jan, 1998)

    that's quick for a jeep, but a wrx should def beat it, especially if you're going to be stage one by then...don't put any money on it though ha

    Nice Avatar, what do you call it? Platy-pus eye? Are you making an innuendo with the bold?

    My buddy has a 98 5.9L, pretty rare cars. It definitely has a lot of power but I've never seen him race it. As quoted earlier, motor trend says it runs low 15's. I imagine even with all the mods it probably wouldn't break 14. You should beat it, but they're really fast SUV's for how old they are.
