This is more of an engine swap thread than a build thread but it can just keep going after I get the swap done! I started a previous thread here http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f369/...eeler-1464096/
to get some info and bounce ideas off of people but now that it is going down I figure I should start a new one for anyone wanting to follow or gain/contribute some knowledge. I'll bring everyone up to where it sits now. The build probably wont go as fast as I would like due to budget and time restraints. I'm trying to part out the rest of the donor truck to fund more parts. For a little back story, I think that my engine swap is especially awesome since I used to own the donor truck a couple of years ago. I actually sold it to my buddy in order to buy my YJ, so the truck has been in my life for almost 5 years. I paid $12k for it with only 71k on it then I bought it back from insurance for $1600 with 114k!
