yj v8 swap
Hello all! New to forum so hope this hasn't already been asked but here goes, I have a 1993 yj that Im going to be putting motor, tranny and transfer case in from a chevy k10 pickup. Question is, can I put the 205 transfer case in jeep? I have read about 350 motor and 700r4 tranny working but was curious if transfer case will fit jeep ok thanks
Advanced adapters, Novak, or transdapt sells adapter to make chevy trans use a tcase that drops on the driver side. Or, I guess you could find an 84-86 cj7 front d30 and use that since it would be a passenger side drop but I dont know what ratios cj7s came with
I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

thanks for all the information! So should I stick with 231 off of jeep now? I know I will need a adapter still but which would be stronger and cheaper way to go? No plans for offroading just daily driver
A v-8 motor swap is a lot of work for a daily driver. I drive mine every day. I did a Tbi 350. The fuel injection makes it nice for a daily driver. You can buy adapters to keep your 231j. I've seen that done. I used a 241c cheaper and stronger but a lot of work to make it fit. Don't forget you will need a radiator for the swap. I did a lot of reading and looked at a lot of pictures before I started. Ask yourself why you want to do a v8 swap? Before you start. By far the best thing I ever did was my v8 swap. I would really hate to see someone start the swap just because they think it would be cheap or easy. I have seen many jeeps with inline 6 motors do just as well with lower gears than a lot of high horse power v 8s.
