I'm on my phone so I don't feel like looking back, what seats are they? Mine were super tall too but I'm also 6'1". My head is still probably within 3" of the spreaders.

They are just some cheap seats I got them from a local guy for $100 with the harnesses. I'm only 5'11" I'll have to snap some pictures of the clearances tomorrow.

I picked up a freshly rebuilt AW4 yesterday and I also painted the cage, put the interior wiring harness in, and got the dash back in.

Today hopefully I'll get the tail housing of the AW4 drilled, get the flywheel re drilled for the torque converter (if needed), swap the input of my t case to a 21 spline, electric fan put back on the shroud (I had to weld up some holes I cut in it) then mount the fan/shroud to the radiator.

Today I got the motor/trans/t case put in.




Once everything was put in and I put the front clip back on I realized my Novak radiator wasn't going to work. So I went and bought a new one. So if you or any one you know is looking for a double core aluminum radiator I'm selling mine for cheap.

How does the alternator clear the frame rails? It looks like you're using the XJ belt routing/accessory location.

I used an XJ motor when doing my engine swap & had to switch to a TJ/YJish belt routing, as the alternator would've hit the frame.

Also, it's there a reason you're using the oil filter bracket thing & not just putting the filter directly on the block?

What injectors are you using? I'm using 24lb mustang injectors on my 4.6L with good results.

What exhaust are you using? Manifold back...

Sorry for all the questions, my phone's not loading well now, if some are answered, just tell me to read it in the thread ...

The build looks good!

Edit: have you considered doing a newer (00-06) intake manifold swap? That should help with the stroker especially.

Fwiw, if I were doing the exhaust on a yj, I'd do a newer intake manifold, 2-piece exhaust manifold (oem/oem style), 00 without cali emissions downpipe, some sort of smaller cat, banks cat back.

If you did all the exhaust for a 00 w/out cali emissions, everything would be bolt on.

The intake manifold would require changIng the power steering pump/pulley initially though.

I haven't tried to put the alternator on yet but it looks to me like it will clear the frame. Ill let you know.

There is no specific reason for using the oil filter adapter I just left it on.

Im using accel 26lb/hr injectors but haven't ran them yet.

I've got a pace setter header that is mandrel bent under the pan and back. I will probably run 2" pipe to the hi flow magnaflow cat, then into the pypes violator muffler.


Feel free to aslant questions

I would take the oil filter bracket off just for the reason that it's one more thing to leak.

That exhaust sounds good, but I'd recommend some sort of flexible or 2-piece manifold. I'm currently about to pull my cracked Banks manifold. If you already have the header, then run it & maybe use a flex pipe before the cat. I haven't read of any one piece headers that don't crack.

I don't mean to be criticizing...just trying to help ya out.

Also, idk how much it helps with a stroker, but I did a bored throttle body on mine. I got one from Jeff at strokedjeep.com, he has good prices & was great to deal with.

Oh & check out jeepstrokers.com if you haven't, there's some good info on there.

Thanks for the info.

For the exhaust I have all my parts. Im hoping ill be able to keep it short enough to end the exhaust right after the tranny so I can just mount it to the motor/trans that way I don't have to worry as much about it cracking.

I'm a welder at a machine shop so if I need more air I can bore the throttle body out myself and make a new plate. I try to do as much of the work myself as possible.

Very slow haha I have no motivation to get it done... I'm not sure what's wrong with me haha. I only work on it maybe 3-6 hours a week.

Yesterday I got 98% of my wiring harness hooked up and I finished my light bar mounts.









I also ordered all of my OBA setup. So right now what I have left is the rear stretch, finish the wiring harness, wire the LED light bar and the fogs lights that I picked up at six states the other day, mount/wire the CB, put on my 95 brake booster/master cylinder, hookup the OBA, put the trans mount on, and lengthen/shorten my drivelines if I need too.

Today I got the rear stretch done and I made new spring clamps.







I flexed it outrage best I could but my jack wouldn't go high enough.
