So I guess you know you drive a Zj when even though your rig has smaller tires, less lift, twice the miles and is 10 years older, people still recognize it as a BOSS.
I've always liked the look of a beast ZJ over that of pretty much any other lifted vehicle. WJs, admittedly, come in a very close second... :hide:

im sure the 46RH could handle a stock 360 fine, my main reason for just sticking with the 318 is because id need the 5.9 flexplate and torque converter and either a mopar performance pcm or have mine flashed for the bigger cube motor. cheaper just to stick with what i have

True. I would just feel better working with a more heavy-duty transmission.

Haha I'm pretty sure that's what everyone with a ZJ has been repeating for the last decade or so

Speaking of transmissions would it be bad to use one of the folded up cork gaskets when I service my transmission?
