Didn't know jeep had a 4.7. I bought the wife an Equinox (cause she wanted it). Should have got her a Wrangler. Mileage is similar but it's not a Jeep (if you know what I mean)...........Thanks again.

If you soaked your relays, change them all and try a reprogram. Water up the intake could be a problem. Hope you fare well with your insurer. Best of luck. R...

Default 4.7, 5.7, 5.9 V8's

Hey guys, I was and am still seeking data on these 4.7's. Yet if one ciphers through this thread, you learn the opinions of about 2 decades relating to Dodge V8 pickups (2wd & 4wd).

I believe it still boils down to need/purpose. Thanks for all the responses (I can pass on accordingly). R...

Default Update per Astartes request

My good friend (I'm tied to his brother on trucks) visited the dealership. I had printed off this thread. His brother is looking for him a 2010 model quad 4.7 4x4 with something less than 70,000 miles and transferable warranty. I assume these 2010 critters come in SLT. I want to thank you guys for taking the time to respond.

The odd thing is, he's never owned a 4x4 (probably because he borrows mine). R...
