My 231 C Hd from 89 S10 I think.

My Jeep NP231 with SYE on right

Score on the wider chain in the 231C case

Jeep front yoke was little smaller -I did re-use it since it matches my front driveshaft

Also my 231C HD has 6 gear plantery so nice upgrade also

End result, I used my rear 231J half, sye I allready had, the rest is from the S10 231C case, was fairly easy. In theory I could run my facotry Jeep speedo from my tcase if needed I think. I plan to have my ECM tuned to 8000 square wave signal for the output to speedo it provides from signal I will send it from my aa vss signal.

crawled. I don't know if I will ever have the knowledge or patience to construct a wiring harness for a swap like this.

The wiring harness so far has been extremely easy, but time consuming.

Bronco2 here is a quick shot of my current build. I am planning on starting the motor stand-alone this weekend and may be able to pass some info on as I have read just about every 5.3 6.0 swap out there. Mine is a 6.0 but still the same concept if i can help let me know. My build is slow but its progressing.

Call Superior Radiators and see what there price is on a aftermarket Radiators. You can get a dual pass rad. that puts the input and output on the same side. Unless you want to put your intake on the passenger side. I bought one for a standard and it worked out pretty well.

I have, I orginally was going to get the Novak. Now I'm leaning toward not getting Novak. I like the way the advertise it be built to absorb energy and designed for a Jeep, which sounds great,but since the radiator is bolt to the front of the body, I don't see there being an issue. I'm leaning toward a Radiator from this guy. He can set it up for the LS locations, I like american made and fully tig welded. I kinda want the tranny cooler lines in the radiator and will ad additional cooler if needed. Its alot less money than Novak/with there fan.. Or AA with there fan

His store

I think might be the same as Superior after looking.

Bronco2 you mentioned that you were looking for a 2005/06 tj fuel tank setup to get you to the correct fuel pressure which i understand, but i was under the assumption that the pump from the 05/06 will retro to a 97-up tank. Do you have any more on this ?
