That's what I was meaning. It can be a tired 4.0l cause it will need to be punched to 30x.

Really thanks for giving me engine building 101.
You want me to break it down for you, cause I can. You put the 4.2l crank. Stock rods with the 4.2l pistons.

Gentlemen, enough.....

Go discuss strokers somewhere else. It's been progressively moving up the list but it's still not high enough to consider right now.

Next subject.

Are you really thinking about swapping your JJs over to Duroflex joints? Guess I need to read up on them.

I'm swapping over to them to test them and to quench my curiosity. They'll actually have to be better than JJ's for the switch to be anything but temporary. I'm simply doing it to do it.

I probably missed it, but did you modify the height of the front spring mount? I was thinking of raising mine 2" to run a 4" coil and still stay at the 2" lift height that I am at now and like running at.

Send me that link and we can discuss this in private. And just cause I misquoted the correct part doesn't not by anymeans I don't know how to build a motor.

The upper mount is unchanged but I don't run spring isolators up there. The lower mount is not factory and is as low to the tube as I can get it. It's probably 1/4"-3/16" lower than stock. So I gained about 1" up front, which is consistent with my frame height being what it is. Overall, the Jeep sits at 1.5-2" over stock with taller springs than that.

How is the ride without the isolators...do you notice any additional road noise or vibration? Maybe items a moot point with your rig being at the point that it is, but I'm curious.

I'm sure there is a very small difference but I didn't notice it. That's what the body mounts are there for.

Give me a few days and I'll try and come up with a build/price list about both options we talked about today, as well as some performance estimates with both.

96 XJ:Parking lot Pre-Runner

89 MJ: Project: Ground up - Sold
01 XJ: Project: Silverback - Totaled

What did you ever do with your rear frame?? do you still have it? if so i'd be interested in the tnt cross member off of it if that would be possible.

Talking of the duroflex joints, aren't you running jj's on both ends of your links? If so have you thought of running JJ's on one end and duroflex's on the other. If nothing else, long term ride comfort should be greatly reduced. and according to Metalcloak flex won't be hindered much if at all.
