ok the above link doesn't exactly work. click on it, then click enthusiast, then go down to middle of page to list of magazines and click on four wheeler, then click on jeep category, then jeep wagoneer, you will then see it in a small list of articles.

If money were no object it would be nice to do this

A 5.3L with a 4L60E would be awesome in the gaucho!

I would say as long as the install is clean you will have one of the most awesome rigs ever. Thanks for keeping those of us whom are addicted to this build supplied with time wasting opportunities.

You could find a grand wagoneer with a 360 for about a grand. Take the drivetrain out of that and throw it in the gaucho.

BTW, if you ever need any help, PM me if your anywhere near Atlantic County. I would love to work on the Gaucho.

Oh I know, I was looking at these a week or two ago. That is way over my price range.

I can't wait to see this rig progress into the show-stopper it will be.

Go to the JY and pull a lq9 (iron block 6.0) from a newer work truck. A 6 liter swap can be had here in ohio for under $1000. I would try to find a 4l80 or maybe a 4speed w/ a gearvendors blackbox (overdrive).... the options are endless.... I appreciate the direction that you and the PO were heading with the build, but I think I would go the other route and build a slick one off custom. I'm thinking Rescue Green, 4.5" lift, waggys F/R, 16" Mopar Moab drilled for beadlocks, 35" pitbull rocker radials...
