Doing a 5.3L V8 swap into my TJ

I am currently knee deep into my swap. Things seem to be going well. I don't really need any help, but if you are in the area, you are welcome to drop by and check it out. I am working out of the Elmendorf auto hobby shop.

[QUOTE=1222;9649132]Not sure if this is in the owner’s manual, (too lazy to look – just being honest) but how would you get out of your Jeep if the power went out and you were locked inside? Assuming you have the power windows and locks of course.
