Jason, If you really want to change out the 2.5 to 4.0 you will need to change out allot of stuff including the wires and computer brain, drive train, etc.

It can be done, but of course, its always better to just get another Jeep with 4.0 install already.

I only push because my grandpa + uncle are considering remodeling two of our condos, and I have a feeling they told me because they will want the truck. So having the Jeep working would be nice, I personally don't want to use the Crown Vic, but can if things look to uncertain at this point, which Im guessing they are.
Well, lets see what happens this weekend at Ecology and go from there. If one is found then we can go ahead, if not I'd say its back to craigslist.

You sure are pushing the TJ.... In order for something like that to happen I'd have to sell the truck and the YJ. If only I could talk that guy down the street into giving me a sweet deal on that Rubicon

Opps, sorry I forgot to respond to this.

Yeah, that's Blaine. He was going to operate the winch incase I needed it.

Sure, you're more than welcome.

If you want to go to Colorado & Moab with me, that'd be fine too, if you can take a week off work.

Cool. From Temecula it should be ~2-2.5 hour drive, which isn't too bad. Once you're in Yucca Valley, you're ~20 miles from Boone Rd which is the entry road I take. Then it's ~2.5 miles north on the sandy dirt road.

Ok I though what Joe did was intense offroading,

and people who had submarines from how much they modded their jeeps,

sorry y'all but after watching "The Deadliest Catch" on Discover Channel...

Those shallow streams and big puddles i loved speeding through...just don't seem the same.

Jimmy, Steve and any other Nascar nuts -

I scanned in some pictures of my last Nascar event. It was in '02 and I was in the pit and hit the Hollywood Hotel. I have a ton more but am getting tired. It was a crappy camera as you can tell. Oh, and whoever drives the Lowe's car won that day.

not exactly you can order a wiring harness for his model jeep with the I6 engine from painless wiring should run between 300-400 bucks and the computer you can pick up at your local kragen or autozone shop refurbish one's run from 150-200. The only real problem i see is the trans i don't know if his will work and according to the XJ forum sounds like the one from the 2 wheel drive xj wont work but if it had the heavy duty tow package we could be lucky there. besides maybe shortening drive line components such as the shaft i think that's really all he needs i mean he does have a donor vehicle for all the stuff we might need. but it can be a costly switch the question you have to ask is it really worth spending money in putting it in your ride or can you find a ride like your's or better with the six in it? and with the slow car market how long will it take to sell your old ride? you could trade the truck in for a used dealer certified wrangler be like an even trade then you can get rid of both your problems.

Doing it is the easy part. Getting it passed for smog is the hard part and an engine that is older than the vehicle wil not get through, no way no how.

For a successful swap here in CA you need the proper year and type of engine, the full wiring harness including the original computer, evap canister, the works. Plus, it really helps to have the original EPA sticker and the VIN from the donor vehicle.

I did a lot of research on this before deciding to rebuild my motor.

You will need some kind of a temp controlled switch, either a radiator probe type or one that goes in the water jacket. I have the radiator probe type and have been happy with it.

You will also need relays since the fan draws a lot of power.

Remind me to show you my setup.

Come on over later. I have all the parts but have not installed it yet. I can give you all the P/N's from Napa too.
