The 5.9L TJ [Video]
First off, we apologize in advance for any confusion. Like many of you, when we think of a 5.9L, the venerable Cummins inline-six diesel engine is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Under the hood of this 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ however is a 5.9L with plenty of history all its own. Its Mopar’s fuel-injected 360ci Magnum V8... Found more commonly in Dodge Ram ½-ton trucks, the engine has become a go-to for many Jeep owners looking for more power under the hood, but don’t want to spend a fortune on a V8 conversion.
While we’ll have a full feature on Randy Crews and his Nitto Mud Grappler-fitted TJ coming soon, we put together a video of the Jeep in action. In addition, we hear from the owner on how this Jeep came to be.
