4.0 hands down, better mileage, more horsepower, more torque, fuel injected

the 4.2 has slightly better low low rpm torque but thats it

Replaced the 4.2 with another, yes 4.2..blew a hole in the ole one. Running but can't find my timing light and we're
in vacuum hell!! Have the diagrams but missing lots of hose, a decell valve, and the two pulse air valves are capped at the bottom, and who ate all the T's.

thats why body lifts that size are not the best of ideas

Fired the beast up and realized I really want a new motor. Man I want to feel the fresh rumble of new power. No 4.3l swap as most shops don't know how to do the computer for the CPI. So new 4.2 and new tranny yay Bob. Gotta love tax time!!! Yj revitalized

Instead of wheeling with zte87 the plan was to install my sub, extend my bumpstops, and start on rocker guards.
Ended up having to modify the box and do homework which both sucked. I feel un-accomplished lol

Well I finally get to say it.... I WHEELED IT!!!! All weekend at the dunes and it did amazing for what it is, made it up some dunes that I really had my doubts on and scared the hell out of my girlfriend. Need to extend the brake lines though since I was using the front brake lines as limiting straps :-/ best part of the weekend was today though when I had to pull 2 of my buddies off the beach, one of them was in a Chevy 1500 with a 4-5k lbs trailer and the other was a Chevy 2500 with a 3-4k lbs trailer, such a good feeling!
