Just to be clear, I never admitted being wrong, I admit having batteries on the brain when I typed in a google search and inadvertantly added the word batteries. Regardless it brought up several instances of you being totally incorrect. You have provided nothing to back up you claims of the US being the largest lithium and or lithium battery exporters and seem to be having a hard time owning up to that. I'm man enough to admit a mistyped search, can you admit you were proven wrong?

Talking 2 different hemis here. 5.7 is not the same as the 392.
Gotcha I was having a slow moment there, looking forward to seeing what Jeep charges and what our Broncos will have to up the anti!

Holy crap! I was like “my Tesla is really fast and eco boost engines can be more fuel efficient and still make boatloads of power” and y’all went off on a 5 page war. I’ve never really understood the “car” guys that are so invested in discrediting and hating on electric cars. To me, it’s just another type of drivetrain to enjoy for its inherent qualities. I don’t want to race an electric (have a dedicated Porsche race car), I don’t want to tow with it (7.3 Excursion), and I don’t want to take Sunday pleasure cruises in it either (that’s usually the old Mustang). But on long road trips or daily commuting, you really can’t beat it. It’s comfortable, quiet, smooth, and when I’m really fatigued, it will basically drive itself. It’s clear that fuel economy regulations are going to continue ratcheting up. My point was that we don’t have to be afraid of getting completely neutered “performance” cars like the 70s. Today’s environmentally friendly cars can smoke the doors off the big block muscle cars of the good ole days. To me, this is a win for all of us.

I'm not spending +$65k on an out dated and uncomfortable off roader. 2.7L BD for the win! Priced it at $47k.

you might as well just drive a turbo civic.

you can make anything fast, you can’t make anything cool and V8’s are cool.

392 FTW.

Ha ha. My wife drives a turbo civic. I also have a 311hp turbo charged sport bike for the crazy hair days (I’m a bald guy but you get the meaning). I know how turbos can put out the power and respect them but dayum that 392 sounded SWEET! Nothing sounds as good as a built NA motor. Gonna agree that V8’s are cool 😎.

Lol that sport bike would scare the hell out of me! I’m an old school, NA, big V8 rumble kind of guy lol. I respect fast but I can’t stand lawnmower civics and their high pitched exhaust lol.

But, yep!! I am biased since I own the 392! But it sounds amazing and feels even better!

Ok, we've established it was a mind fart for me to put the word battery in the search to prove your statement wrong. I was multitasking. Your retarted if you think anyone really thinks lipos come out of the ground. I even established in another post where the main raw materials come from. You said the US is the largest exporter of lithium batteries and have yet to prove my provided documents wrong. You and megatwit got butthurt that I established that electrics aren't as eco friendly as you "earth hero's" think and are trying you use the mining batteries thing to distract from the fact that you have been proven wrong. This is a JR High tactic. Show me where my documentation is wrong and your statement that the US is the largest exporter of lithium batteries or lithium. Just for fun, here's a picture of a few lithium batteries I have that are not in service right now. I also included some parts and pieces from my soldering station that I use to build battery packs, several lithium chargers, a 2021 Bronco (so you know it's actually my pic) and a few ASE Master Certified Tech plaques you get every time you recertify. You know, just in case you want to act like you know more about cars than me too.

RubiTrux in Boone NC won’t be excited to see the 392 Jeep as they do HEMI conversions that exceed $100k....
