94 YJ Engine Swap/98 Dodge Ram 5.9 4x4
Picking up the engine, wiring harness, computer tranny (auto), and fuel pump out of a 98 Dodge Ram 5.9 Magnum. Anyone that has been through this project? Help out a fellow Jeeper! Going to tackle this one during the winter months. Any help, suggestions, tech, dont's, do's...would be greatly appreciated! Want to have all parts available before I dig in. Currently running the 2.5...Pic's will follow during "remodel"....
Wife loves the manual trans....any advantages/disadvantages to the manual? Heard you can use a 5 speed out of a dodge dakota. I guess it may be easier on the tranny in the dunes? No overheating issues.

Rams had the NV3500, the stock jeep ax-15 will bolt up with a v6 dakota bellhousing. The pilot bushing might be an issue, but I got lucky that a stock 4.0 pilot bushing fit perfectly in my 5.9 crankshaft.
alright...Bmgadg, I picked your build thread apart...WOW! I am picking up an Ax-15 tomorrow am, headers from Summit on the way, looking for the Dakota 3.9 bell, mounts from AA on the way....Here we go!!!
