    You can simply add an extra quart to an AMC V8. The police versions came with the same parts but were simply filled a quart fuller - maybe with a different dip stick? I'm just repeating what I read on the Wagoneer forums - likely it's discussed on the AMC forums too.

    I run an extra quart no issues with as much off camber as my butthole can take.

    Doesn't extra oil run the risk of having it get frothy from hitting the crank?

    I believe that's the point. The level is far enough away from the crank with 5 quarts, that another quart won't make it frothy.
