Jus read through your entire build, great work! I do have a couple questions, I am assuming you placed the AA mounts on the frame in the location AA recommends. I have read that that location makes for a
Very tight fit with the overflow and WW reservoirs. I am thinking about moving the mounts back 1/2 to 1 inch for a little breathing room without getting to tight with the firewall. The reason I ask is I am doing the swap
*** backwards. I have a bare frame I want to get the mounts welded to along with all my other fab work so I can send it out to get hot dip galvanized before I tear my jeep apart so I have limited down time. It is a big project because I am also stretching the frame 15" an using an unlimited tub. I'm not worried about driveshafts as I am swapping in a 241OR and a 2.72 doubler behind my AX-15 at the same time. Do you think moving the engine mounts back 1" will cause any other issues? Thanks in advance for your insight Murf

Do you remember what radiator hoses that you used? I used the ones off of my GC 5.9 and pieced them to the original TJ hoses on the radiator side. It works but yours looks neater. Thanks Paul

Yup, plenty, and highway cruising is pretty great now

I second the 4.10s... Ax15 trans, and 35s. 4.88s had it revving to the moon on the highway

Exactamundo, and first gear would be over before it had even begun, so most of the time I was starting in 2nd from stoplights, essentially making my 5 speed a 4 speed.

Cool, thats the kind of feedback I need. I'm running 4.56 right now with 35's and was debating on regearing. I think I'll go ahead and do it. Thanks doublins and dmgiff.
