The wifes ride is a 94 Jeep Grang Cherokee w/ a 5.9 w/ 145k on it. Change the oil once in a while and all is still good.

I plan on rebuilding it but need some input on it. I had Chevys SB&BB and Pontiac BB but this is my first Mopar project. I'm not insane, so I'm not going just juice it. The other thing is I want to leave it AWD and street but go to the track once in awhile. So that is why I asking the Mopar guys about durabilty of the 5.9lt. or is it not worth doing?
