Man that sucks. That nothing, I built a heavily modified 355, for a 75 Corvette that I had a couple of years back. Fully built picked it up to move it in the shop. One off the legs, on the lift buckled for some reason and dropped it from about three foot. Busted up a bran spanking new oil pan and a set crank pulleys, and for a will, until it was in and fired wasn't sure if it had ruined the balanced and blueprinted crank. Not a good deal.

Wow you have me beat. Nothing worse than spending a ton on a swap and then having a setback like that. Speaking of oil pans, what will swap directly in for a lower profile? I got a bit done tonight. Im about ready to pull the engine and trans on the jeep for a guy to pick up on saturday.

I think if you get a oil pan from a car it will be shallower. If you go with the car oil pan, I have a flexible dipstick that will work with that pan and headers.I would part with it cheap and shipping. My wife got it for me for X-mas and it was the wrong one, its not long enough for a truck pan. Won't even touch the oil.

Is the truck pan working out ok for you? I play in the rocks so I want to make sure I have as much clearance as possible

There's a ton of 5.3/6.0 swap info on Pirate's Hardcore Jeep tech page. Here's a link that shows the dimensions of available oil pans that could work for you. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing

Thanks for the info man. I definitely need to do some more reading over on pirate. It always helps to have real time feedback rather than readinga 2year old thread, but any information is helpful.

Oh yeah, you may not have enough posts to post pics without being a paid subscriber. Try uploading them to photibucket and copy and paste the url

I got the engine and tranny out of the jeep last night. I hooked up the chain pretty weird but it worked. It was my first time pulling a motor by myself so I thought I did ok. Had a couple of buddies over to help guide it out and push the jeep out of the garage.
