Hello guys, you may have seen my post a week or so back detailing the death of my jeep because of rust on the frame, and now I want to bring it back into another jeep.
My old jeep has 120k miles on motor, brand new front axle and known good transfer case.
I want to put that into another ZJ with little to no rust, and I wanted to ask you guys if there would be any compatibility problems? Like if I find a body that had a v8 would my i6 fit in there directly or would the engine bay need to be modified?
If I found a 95,(pre-revision in 96) would my 96 parts and engine and electronics go in there?
Just things like this, what would be the most compatible donor vehicle to try to find? Other than the exact same one lol.
Unless the V8 was toast, I don't know why you'd want to put your I6 in it. But you can do it. You'd have to change some of the wiring and computer to do it. You own a 96 so don't even bother with an older one. The wiring doesn't match up at all. The connectors are all different and some are missing completely. It would be allot simpler to look for a 96-98 with an I6. Also, unless you've done allot of work to your engine and the donor is a wreak, it's a waste of time.
