Ok .. here is the situation ..
A buddy and I are going to strip down his '87 YJ of all its driving components and swap in a 3/4ton chev into it. We are looking to make this as quick and simple as possible, but neither of us have done this kind of swap before.
We have both swapped like-for-like engines, parts, drive-train and such, and even some minor upgrades .. so are just looking for something that can point us in the right direction.
What we have is:
- Chev 350
- TH350 transmission
- NP203 T-case
- Full-width axles
- Full 3/4ton truck to steal any parts from that is required.
- 1987 Jeep with 3" body lift and 4" spring lift
What we are looking for are any special motor mounts to put the engine in its place (heard we can use the stock Chev motor mounts, cut them off the frame and weld them onto the Jeep), special T-case skidplate required (where to find, or instructions to make), best way to mount full-width axles (don't care to cut them to size), best way to do the axles as SOA?
When we are finished, it will have 35" Baja Claws mounted on the new rims.
Any tricks, tips, hints for us to follow .. is there a book that we can purchase with that kind of information in it?
