5.2 Swap

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I think I may finally be doing a V8 swap over the winter,long time coming!! I think I have a lead on a 1996 Dodge Ram 4x4 5 speed.Hopefully I will know in the next few days if its available! I have read alot about the swap on line and it seems to be fairly straight forward.I am a bit concerned about the wiring tho,I am wondering if it was possible to strip the wiring out of the Ram and put it all in the Jeep? Or if its easier to just mate the harnesses? Any and all opinions/advice is greatly appreciated!!

I think the best but definitely not the cheapest way is to send the harnesses out to be spliced.
