hey NaeKid,

"If things go well, I should be able to do it all for under $2000 Canadian"

what engine/trans/xfer you plan on using to keep the cost down so low?

thanks for all the replys, that supercharged 2.5 with nearly 300hp sounds interesting, I owuld assume many other performance mods would have to be made for the engine to take it, the only reason that i would go with the 4.0 instead of the v-8 is gas milage, I think that if i get a 4.0 and with my 8" lift and 35s, it would get pretty bad gas milage, I woulld imagine 14 per gallon, if i went with the v-8 I bet that i could get the same gas milage with the right carb or injection system, with it still living up to v-8 power expectations, anyone have an opinion on the gas milage aspect between the 4.0 and a v-8 that would be pulling a 8" lift and 35's?
