Wow, really glad I found this thread! I'm looking at buying a CJ with a SBC conversion, but the purist in me rebels at the thought of a Chevy engine in a Jeep. All four Jeeps I've owned before the JK had the 4.0 in them, so my first thought was, "How cool would it be to swap a 4.0 into a CJ?"
So this is a fairly straight-forward swap? There are companies out there that sell the adapters? Does Painless or anyone sell a wiring harness to just drop in there, or will it require splicing?
2 XJs, a ZJ, a TJ, a JK . . . Now in an LJ!
