Motor Swap?

Well I think I'm going to do the motor swap for my 85 CJ-7 to the 4.0L H.O. Set-up...Is this hard to do? Should I just keep the 4.2 in it?

Someome say NO please!

As in, do the 4.0 H.O. Set-up...

I like to wave to random people, you should try it!

Why would I say no, When that is what I plan on doing!
Better to have Jeeped & Rolled Over then to never have Rolled Over.

Not too hard, just a little time consuming. The wiring is the worst part and as long as you sit down and look at everything before you start cutting, you will be fine. Check out my 4.0 swap sticky at the top of the forum.
