Youre planning on a 5.2 now!?
Vortec > Magnum
Try to get an 8.8 with an open carrier so we can trade. I want to throw a Spartan in mine.
Just drove it.
It's THE cleanest YJ I've personally ever seen. Almost completely rust free, perfect paint, interior is immaculate, completely stock except an aftermarket cd deck...
Gonna see about getting a loan for it tomorrow. I got him to wiggle down on the price quite a bit too. It's a tad more than I was looking to spend on a YJ, but it's a perfect platform...
And ya, thinking about a 5.2 now. I know a vortec would be a better motor, but I have a buddy that would give me a complete 5.2 with harness for $150...can't pass up that deal! He also has an ax15 to mate it to for another $150. So for $300 I could have the motor and trans waiting in the wings.
He put the 5.2 in his Jeep, and total cost for him was under $700, including mounts, exhaust, wiring, etc...Too good of a deal to pass up and still plenty of power for 35s/37s...
I'll check around for an open 8.8 too if you really want. You're unhappy with the LSD? Did you rebuild the clutch? I found that it hooked up awesome when wheeling myself...
