Well tonight I started cutting the old motor mounts off. Taking this one step at a time. Will worry about headers down the road..

Got my Advance Adapters mounts in the mail!!!



Shipped a lot quicker than I expected, have been slowly grinding and cutting away at the old mounts, smoothing them out slowly but surely.

Just to update this thread a bit, decided it would be more cost effective to keep the ZJ around for awhile until I have enough parts collected to begin really moving forward with the YJ. I still need axles, suspension, transmission, and some other misc parts to get moving forward.

Question for Xpress or really anybody on here who might know. Seems like YJ 5.2 swaps are fairly common over on this forum. I see you are planning on running your ax15 behind the motor? If so from what are you sourcing the computer? As far as I can tell all the manual dodge dakota's with the 5.2 run a nv3500 transmission. Do you know if the pcm is compatible with either the ax15 or the nv3500? I've been digging for the answer to this question all over the interwebs.
Hoping to swap a terminator ax15 behind my 5.9 zj.

That is a bridge I will attempt to cross when I get there. As far as I am concerned, a transmission is a transmission.

so what CAN you do in Cali???? It seems like they poo-poo everything that attempts to make a vehicle perform better than stock. I mean, headers? REALLY??? I live in Chicago, third largest metro in the US, and they don't care one iota what you do to your vehicle pre-OBDII. Every vehicle I've ever purchased: step 1 - cut off cats.
I've got buddies with carb'd OBDII cars that have 'dummy ECMs" that throw an 'everything is just fine under here, no reason to pop the hood' signal for when they go to emissions testing, which is just a quick OBD scan every few years. One in particular is an F-body T.A. with a 383 and four barrel which has a cam so large the car will barely idle, and when he went for testing the guy just had kind of a puzzled look as the scanner said everytihng is fine....

Mopar 5.9 + AX-15 + mid 90's dakota bellhousing + mid 90's OBD1 computer from a 5.9 dodge ram with manual trans.

That's what I'm running.

Thanks for the info, though I'm not sure how helpful that is for me. My 5.9 is odbII.

Mine was too originally. I converted it to OBD1.
