Didn't know they offer the 3.6 in the crew cab 4x4, I thought it was just in the base model 2 door 2wd. That engine is not up to the tall of moving all that truck, especially when loaded up. Nice job on the rack though!

Yeah they offer it across the line up these days, It's not HORRIBLE but it's not my first choice. The more power the better IMO

Here is the window sticker from one of the trucks. 3.21 axle gearing did not help things at all...

It was tough but I managed, I had this same engine in a rental Charger in 2014 and I hated it in that car also, no low end power at all.

Yeah, that axle ratio isn't much of a help. I've driven the Grand Cherokee and the Town and Country with the 3.6, it was ok in the grand Cherokee, but in the Town and County.....well, let's just say a minivan is a minivan is a minivan....

To all of our fans and friends, the end of May is the last day you will be able to order a new truck from Ford for us to convert. The 2017 models are a whole new animal...

Click here and get on the build list...


Thanks
