Would be even easier in a OBD1 ZJ, the trans is an RH so it would be half the wiring & no computer swap. You would have to find a rear wiper switch from an AW4 ZJ to look factory.

[*]A GOOD hd clutch kit. I used a ZOOM kevlar unit recommended for heavy offroad usage and lots of clutch slippage in the rocks.
was curious what series zoom kevlar you used? I checked out their website but im not sure what stage would be best for this application. thanks!

I see you finally did a write up on this swap, after I finished mine . Thanks though you were a big help in my swap and your build thread.

So, pretty much no way of knowing if the sanderson headers will work until someone goes for it.

I wonder if any vendors might have some tight tubes.
