You have the beginnings of a real beast it sounds like. Keep us updated on the transplant, I'd like to know.

Does the $1200 RE extreme duty lift come with a SYE? If not, add that to the list.

Are you going to run axles full width?

You're going to have a nice rig that most of us on this forum would be envious of. Nice job! You must not have a kid, school loans, or a wife!

Looks like your shifter was cut and shortened, why? Both tranny and transfer case.

And the work begins

Well I pulled the jeep into the shop today and picked up the engine and trany. Its a chevy 5.7 and a 4L60E auto. not sure of the generation of engine. Trying to find the wireing diagram for the engine and trany to help seprateing all the wires not needed. If any of you know where i can get this please let me know. I think the same computer controles the engine and trany all the wires from both lead back to it. Oh and the donor was a 93 Chevy K1500 4x4. here are tge pics of what i am working on atm.





ok what engine is that?



Dana 44 out of a 79 ford F250





Compter and all the wires out of the donor
