93 yj strictly off roader/ mud bogger

ive been building my jeep for almost a year now and have just now decided to post the build. its a 93 yj that started out red and was painted black during a body off restoration and had 35" bald baja claws put on it, it also had a burnt up winch before i traded my 72 satellite for it. all work has been done by me.
got it looking like this



i started out by doing a 3" BL and 4.5 spring lift and tom woods drive shaft with SYE kit.



then bought a hard top, bushwacker fender flares an xrc-10 winch and boggers.(over a couple of months period) my buddy made the built not bought decal.


this is at bundy hill offroad park a few of miles away from my house

Not much for the body lift but I'm diggin' this Jeep. I like how your building it for the mud. I'm not into mud anymore but hey, if you are then this Jeep is starting to look like a good one for it.

man ive been working out of town too much but i finally got the swap done now and i will post pictures later....for it i used novak adapters engine mounts and they worked smooth. i ended up ordering a bunch of adapters to mate the sm465 to the 5.3 and the np231 to the sm465. it was not bad rebuilding the sm465 for the adapter but it does require a bearing press and snap ring pliers.

as for fuel system(this seems to be a very common question) the guy at novak told me that the 4.0 fuel pump can be used with the swap you just need to set a fuel pressure regulator to 60psi or they have an inhouse setup that i am going with that is pre set.

i simplified the factory wiring harness down myself to save some money and used the factory fuse block ecu and drive by wire pedal, i just slightly modded the pedal to fit.

driveshafts were custom made from a shop down the road from me for $250

total after all was said and done it cost me about $100 to do this swap lol if you take away the money i got from parting out the truck it was in i would have spent around $2000 if you dont count the engine. long story short i used a salvage truck i bought off an insurance company to fund the project by parting it out and using the engine out of it.
