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

When you have all the parts you've bought for it, along with all your tools in the back of it, because you never know where you'll be when you have time to do such projects....

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