A couple more things to mention. I wanted to use the NP208 TC, that came with the engine/transmission, for cost reasons. Its not worth the effort because of the passenger side drop. The 241c is Drivers side, a direct bolt on, and out of a 1/2 or 3/4 ton Chevy truck.
Scott, the glass front clip has a 12.5" hole in the center of the hood. It came off of a drag/mud Jeep, I do have a stick on scoop to cover the hole. Your advise on the hole would be appreciated. I'll get a picture Wednesday.
Costs to date.

The YJ, basically free, when you consider selling the engine , and the SS parts.
