5.9 swap into a 96zj


can anyone tell me anything they know about putting these 5.9 360 motors in the zj's? I have heard alot about it, I just picked up a 360 that came out of a dodge truck, i know a few things have to be changed like torque conv. motor mount, etc. Whats the best way to go about doing this? Would I be better off rebuilding my 318 into something, or stuff the 360 in it?

any pointers advice stories I would love to hear...

96 ZJ 318....33" Toyo's, 4" lift, HOT PINK SHOCKS , with a side of mud most days!

All you need is the motor mount. Everything else will bolt up or plug in.

Put an e fan into it while you're at it.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
