That is the worst part of it. I tried warning him...

I'll sell you my renix 4.0 and you can do a 4.7 stroker.

I might have a 4.0. It's been sitting for a whole though... I'm going to do some research and find out what the easiest swap will be.

Idk what that is. But tom95yj said something along the lines of a 4.0 throttle body.

I just don't get why you're looking to trade your XJ. You never really gave a reason.

SBC is small block Chevy ******. About as easy of a swap as a 4.0 believe it or not.

Well, I mean, it's pretty done, the only other things I could do are gears, lock it, long arms and tires... Which I would pay out the *** for. I guess I'm just looking for something "new". I've always loved yjs. I just couldn't refuse the new project. Xj was a trial run, I know what I'm capable of and I plan to show it with the yj.
