What a great build. I'd love to see/hear it run. Any youtube videos floating around out there?

I would be interested if you were to offer it as a kit. I love my 2.5l but i know that i am going to blow it up at some point and been thinking of building a "hot rod 2.5" turbo motor or swapping in something else, after discovering this motor last year or so i've been very interested ever since.

Can you dog this engine at all or are you fairly tame with it? I mean like do you usually just crawl with it or can you lay the fuel to it if you need to? i had heard that since its an industrial engine that they didn't like to be rev'd.

Have you ever used your jeep for pulling a trailer of any sort? I have a m416 im trying to resto for the TJ but i dont have the balls really to pull it most places i'd want to go.

I like to crawl because it has so much low end torque, but it has no problem running on the governor either. Because it's industrial, it's actually overbuilt and underrated which means it can take the abuse... although I'm a pretty tame wheeler if you ask around.

I wouldn't call you a tame wheeler smoke, (lions den was pretty badass) but I'd use the word calculated instead.

Having wheeled with this rig it is quite capable. Id be interested to see where it would go if he really cut loose, or didn't care so much about it being pretty. Either or Lol

It does seem to me after seeing it in action that wheelspeed is an issue, and I don't know if it's that the motor is so low end oriented, or the 4:1 kills the top end, but it doesn't seem to like it when you are giving it hell.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Love this and actually looking at a similar cummins swap into a scout I've got. One question, what did you do for power steering? Are there brackets available for the cummins 3.3 to run this? Everything else looks great!

1985 CJ7 Project
Phase One : 5.3L Vortec/4L60E, Moser axles for AMC20, Twin Stick'd Dana300 - Completed
Phase Two: Bedliner, Rollcage, Seats, BESRK Rear Bumper w/ tire swing, Soft Top, and a few other goodies - Mostly Complete
Phase Three: Waggy 44 front, Scout D44 Rear, 4.56's, ARB's (F/R) SOA with YJ Springs, 35x12.50x15 BFG MT - Not Even Close to beginning

Also a mostly rust-free 1970 Scout 800A That I'll get to start working on someday...

^I was just asking one of my diesel techs in the shop this very question...he had no idea.

Love this build. I'd have to wait until this 4.0L died to justify a swap like this but on the bright side, I think we have a forklift with this motor in it that has trashed hydraulics. I may have to see if I can take that motor as a commission payment one day.

Excellent work. Whats the out of pocket so far? And knowing you have fab skills, what was the reason for buying brackets and the like, instead of fabbing up yourself? Was it from a time stand point?

I run a Mopar Saginaw pump meant for an early Ram 318ci. It's a simple single groove V-belt and the brackets are very easy to make. I'll try to get photos up this week.

Thanks. Money-wise, commercial brackets are priced so low that I would have nearly that in material, not including the development time and fabwork. Just doesn't make sense in the grand scheme of things. From an investment standpoint, the plan was a $5k Jeep with a $10k build.... instead, I'm at $22k which I'll never get back out of it!

Nice recap Jeremy....I'm sure you made a lot of people happy. Still one of my all-time favorites and one of the most capable wheelers in the group.

Any idea's on how to handle the rear body mounts with the btf bumper/bracket?

BTW - you have all winter until EJS... plenty of time for a QSB swap.

Very astute question newbie, and welcome to Jeepforum btw, you need to update your profile to include your Lightning discos as well!

Realizing that BTF maintains the rear most body mounts are redundant, I went without for the first summer... with the extra weight of my armor, and moreso the huge tire carrier hanging off the armor, it started stressing the tub, specifically floor to wheelwell joint, to the point of cracking. Solution... move the body mounts inward under the tailgate edges and on top of the stock rear crossmember that the BTF setup is welded to.

Not sure if Gribbles stops in here, but maybe he can comment as well. He runs aluminum armor and no tire carrier (actually, no tailgate last I saw!) so he might not be having any issues with body flex without the extra pucks.
