Hey, I'm new to the forum and the Jeep scene in general. I've always worked on cars so I'm mechanically stable pretty much on vehicles. My father has given me a 1995 YJ. Unfortunately it's a 4 cylinder. Now, I know Jeeps aren't race cars, but I need more power.
I'm looking forward into swapping a v8 (most likely a sbc) but I'm wondering what all I'd have to do as in. Which axles would be better because I know the ones I have sitting under the Jeep aren't the strong ones (d30/35 I think) can I put a 8.8 out of a mustang/explorer, what fronts should I use, coming to transmission I know a TH would be simple due to vacuum and not electronic ran, but then again I like a decent gas and there's no OD. So there's the 700, but it's electric and longer so what would I have to do. Not too familiar with the 4L60 or 4L60-E. Not sure if I want carb or fuel injection/throttle body I know I'd need different fuel pumps due to fuel psi.
And help would be great. As of right now she is bone stock, but I'm thinking of putting 31/10.5 under because I need new tires.
Any help would be extremely great.
