New member intro and 01 wrangler build
Hello all. I'm Jon from west tn. I've got an 01 wrangler. It's got the 2.5 liter and 5 speed. I Bought it February 2014 had a 2" body lift and 33 12.50s on 15x10 wheels. I've added a 4" rough country short arm lift, full doors, hardtop, 12k lb winch and smittybilt xrc stinger.
It's a project of mine to swap in a LS V8 I've purchased a wrecked 99 silverado with a 4.8 and a 4l60 auto trans. Plans are to sell the 4l60 and purchase a NSG370. This Will be a slow build, going to get all my parts collected before tearing my jeep down. Lots of Pics to be posted once I get my minimum posts requirement.
Plan to modify harnesses to use OEM jeep cluster. Is anyone else on here running a similar drivetrain setup that I have in mind. I'm hoping to get 18-20 mpg once done running 33s with 4.10 gears. I also have a ford
8.8 rearend with disc brakes to be swapped in to replace the 35 when it gives out.
