5.9 magnum v8 swap?
So the 4.0 in the yj has well over 400k miles on it now and im starting to see that it wont last much longer its been a great engine but now its time for something new. Ive been interested in doing a 5.9 magnum swap either from a zj or a dodge and am woundering if you guys could find me some info on the subject. I would like to keep it a 5speed. if you guys could help that would be greatly appriciated. Thanks again guys. oh and i wouldn't mind seeing some videos if you have any links not to much on youtube.
Horsepower is like a hot girl with STDs. You know you want to hit it but you're afraid of the consequences.
Check out NOVAK JEEP CONVERSIONS. All they specialize is in jeeps and their website has a lot of free information and how to do it.
Check out "YJ V6 Conversion" if you want to see a frame up restoration of my 1992 YJ.
Check out "WWII Jeep Photos AND Restoration of..." if you want to see the original JEEP in action...
bmgadg's thread and Moparfreak's thread are two of the most helpful information buckets about this particular swap. The 5.2L and the 5.9L are pretty similar swaps, so those are the two best to follow. Mine's a humogumbo mess, but I can find you any part or part number that you need if you need it... cause I did document those.
Good luck in your research

My 5.2L V8 swap and Jeep build:
So I bought my 5.9 today $400 for the motor with 148k wireing harnes computer and all bolt on acc like ac alternator ext. So ho much of the wireing harness is actually used? How did you guys go about spliceing into the 5.9 harness? I'm still trying to find a dodge dakota bell housing seems the are kinda rare. And since I'm using a 93 ax15 that has a vss don't I have to get a computer from a dakota mt v8 but that had the nv3500 I don't know what computer to use.
If you are only looking for a V8 dakota bellhousing the V6 magnum w/AX15 bellhousing is the same, this might help you at the junk yard. I know I have one. I was colleting for this swap but have since changed direction.
