That even though these are both dual solid axle high capacity I6 engined off road wagons...they are not the same.

Its still crazy to me that they stuffed an iron block and head OHC 4.0 I6 into something the size of the renegade. I mean, only 500 cc’s (plus 22hp/50lbs-ft) difference between these engines!

I’m not so much amazed the cruiser is so big as I’m still in awe at how small the XJ was...with such an huge engine.
