I don't think this really requires a write up, its simple enough. The mounts are the same for the 4.2 and 4.0, its pretty much a "bolt in" swap. You will need the complete harness with the 4.0, and the AX-15 transmission since the AX-5 won't survive long behind the 4.0. But if you have those parts, its basically just dropping the new motor in.

i think i write up on all the different types of springs people have used would be good.
such as what springs give you lift and stretch, how they ride, different bastard packs and what not
just an idea

I would like to see a write up on using a Cherokee front CV shaft for the rear of YJ's. Seen lots of talk on the forums about people doing it, but not really any good write-ups per-se on the topic. Really interested in it!

How about a write up on removing a YJ dash to get to the wiper motor and related wiper stuff that's under/behind the dash.

thats easy man. just screws all around. take out the three front dash components and then you have to fold down the windshield to get out the screws that are holding in the dash pad.

Spark Plug Swap

Can anybody send me a link on how to change spark plugs on a 1988 Jeep YJ. Specifically, I need a list of the tools I will need, because one of my plugs looks like it will be hard to get to with just a regular ratchet. This is due to the bracket that holds the AC Compressor and Alternator being in the way.

I imagine somebody has written this up before, but I am having trouble finding it.

I have researched the Nutter Bypass and found alot of write ups about it but a picture write up addressing the vacuum garbage that can then be eliminated would be very helpfull.

timing belt

I would like to know how to check/adjust the timing in my 2.5l 89 yj, from start to finish. Not even sure exactly how best to get to the timing belt.

You adjust the timing via the distributor. I am sure someone will have something to post up about it.

All you need is a spark plug socket, a few extensions, a 3/8" ratchet and a wobble joint for the ratchet.

All of the wiper stuff is in the windshield or bolted to it. Fold the windshield down and you have access to all of it. The only part under the dash is to the left of the steering wheel. It is the wiper delay box.
