By the way, how much can we sell a good 4.0 for? I'm getting ready to pull mine.

Michigan buddy.... AC? Ehhhh Come on now... Not running it lol. It's a jeep... If it's nice enough for ac then the top should be off up here. I know its alittle different down south!! I'll give the ac compressor and condenser to the new owner if they want it lol!

I get $1000 for the motor valve cover to oil pan with ps pump alt and ac comp. No wiring, no starter, no flywheel or flex plate with anything from 120k to 160k on the click. Up here they can go as much as $1600. I move them as fast as I get them.

I scored an 04 LJ last week and the motor is already sold. Guys just waiting for me to pull it. Trans-autos about $400-500, manuals over $500 all day.

Some advice on the swap....
Swap your manifolds with the motor out.
Swap -an fittings into the trans
Make your trans lines with the motor out.
Use the motor mount for a chassis and motor ground with 4g cables.
Use the manifolds to lift the motor. Get the new motor lift bar RRI (I) make now.
When you do the sye kit, use the font half of the t case to assist in making the trans cross member. It's much easier and lighter!!
I am currently working on something to make the swap even easier and make it available by itself or as a part of the LS and Hemi kits.

i am just joking about the AC. Down here in south Texas its finally getting cool enough to take the top and doors off. Tomorrow is my "friday" so i plan to remove them then. I just bought the wife a Z71 tahoe and i'm keeping her tahoe as my daily driver, so now i can jump into the LS swap in my Jeep.

Somedays I feel like I don't get enough done !

I have been working on getting my new lift in. With other projects going on today and whatnots, I didn't get to start running the conduit for the power lines until about 5pm. I will say that I get amused when the people around get concerned about how I'm going to get (4) 10g lines through 50' of conduit with 6 bends in it..LOL! Yep took all of 5 minutes. Heheheheee.

Conte... Sounds good buddy. I'll be here for you! Best advice I can give is get all your stuff collected before you take out a bolt. Send the ECU out for programming 2 weeks before you want to start the project. Do your harness while parts are on order.

I would have this jeep fired up if I was able to plan for it better. I kinda jumped into to it because I had a cash buyer and sold the 4.0 out of it, had the 5.3 on the floor and needed it out of the way. Now I'm waiting on parts.... To be delivered, to be painted, etc. if I had all that stuff already in line, the front clip would be on, the ecu mounted, radiator in, trans lines finished and fluids in the systems.

Hopefully tomorrow i can find a minute to get to the painter, send out the ecu, order the E fan and radiator, open up the wire harness, cut a hole in the floor for the shifter.... Oh and drop the fuel tank to install our fuel system components. Be lucky if I get 1 thing done!!! Lol

Quick update.... Throttle body is swapped out, ecu is out for programming, E fan kit is on the way. new tins and the grille are out to paint, harness is on the board, s-10 throttle cable mocked in... haven't got a chance to order the gm 231c SYE kit yet ehhh! just throwing this out there...

OH YEAH...Randon, again thanks for the pics regarding the Power steering issue. So Lesson for the day.... GM put 2 different high pressure fittings on the pumps, one with a sensor [which I had] that turned the HP port 180* and a standard fitting [without the sensor], differences based on models of vehicles/trim packages. The 5.3 [with the sensor fitting] I got was out of Suburban. Actual truck motors, appear to have the standard HP fitting. You can remove the HP sensor style fitting from the back of the pump and install a 'standard' HP fitting without issue. Then attach the stock Jeep HP line to the standard fitting=DONE. I found 2 stock 'standard fittings' at the local JY Saturday morning, one I pulled from an S-10, the other off a v8 Camaro. Identical fittings, I just figured might as well have an extra. Total cost for the fittings from the JY..$0.60 Installed it on my pump in 2 minutes and within a total of 5 minutes the power steering system was complete.

Worked on rewiring the harnesses tonight. Got the stock 5.3 engine portion redone, figured out a few things regarding neutral safety switch etc. redirected some circuits to where I wanted them to go.

You know we aren't putting in any of those cheap fuse Strips under the hood....so-I repurposed circuits and relays in the fuse box , along with adding a few. I still like isolating the ignition circuits to the motor like the factory does, so I had to add some of our trick little fuse pods.

I am re-using the stock starter relay, ASD relay, o2 heater relay, fuel pump relay, then added a 30a micro relay for another IGN circuit and a 30a mini relay for a new E fan to the existing power center ports. Also (2) 30a J fuses and (8) external fuse positions for the injectors, coils, trans, PCM etc were achieved through utilizing (2) of our pods.

The fenders are still out to paint. Have to put a call in to see what the status is.

Holy **** it's 530 I got to crash. Damn. Catch yall later

Both the engine and the bodyside harnesses are done done. I still have to cover them though.

I have been a designing fool it seems the last few days. I gave my cad/CNC guy another project Thursday night.... And I just came up with something frickin awesome within the last hour.... So he will now have 3-4 projects to craft. With those pieces ,I think, no believe, that the average DIY guy can get a LS or Hemi in between the rails of his jeep... completely AND now simply setup on a Saturday afternoon. As soon as the parts are designed and prototyped, I will be meeting with a patent lawyer to get them protected. Once they have the patent pending certification, I will release them. If your considering an LS or Hemi swap.... Just wait a few. I believe it will be worth it. LOL

So I will be skipping some of the install pics on this jeep as I am going to use it to check fitment of a few of the pieces. Should be interesting.
