Thanks for the supercharger advice, I currently have the Ripp Gen2 stage 2 kit on my 4.0 but....I should have a LQ9/4l70e transplanted in before Labor Day. The magnacharger would be for the LQ9....

Here are a couple pics of the Stryker/PSC clearance. Only annoyance you'll have with the Stryker is some gas pump nozzles you have to rotate 90 degrees to insert/remove them. Not a big deal though.


How do you like the RIPP on the LJ? I'm planning on doing the exact same thing, when I find my LJ. First step is done, sold my TJ.

Ripp has been great, haven't had any issues with it or the service. I lucked out and was able to get a low mileage LQ9 for cheap which is the only reason why I'm swapping.

The shop is going to hook us up since they'll do my swap and then swap my motor/trans into his. Already have the motor and picking up a 25k miles 4l80e...now just have to order the adapters tomorrow.

Thanks and ill be sure to post up some pics and a review. So far I've been lucky in sourcing the tranny and the shop owner sold me the complete lq9 for what he paid...he's got a custom LJ and going all our with a l92/6l80 in his. So far cost of motor and tranny under 2500 and adapters and radiator on novaks page list around 3k....labor was quoted at 40/50hrs which I'm selling driveline for 4500...hopefully will be done before my bday

Punisher thanks for pointing me towards Metalcloak. I'm looking into their front and rear. Did you do the basic mounting base for the rears?

And lotsa inches for flexy. That's my main goal sitting on 3 inches of lift and 35's. Wanna get this done before the kinky air bumps get done.
