Right now my thoughts and general direction are:
Installing a 302 that I built out of my son's Mustang. 300 HP, carbed. Makes power at the high end. Not a trail rig for sure but this is going to be a street Princess/light trail rig anyway. It got 18/22 MPG in the Mustang so it should equal that in the Jeep.
It'll be a daily driver so rust prevention and paint protection will be top concerns. Going to use the hard top and hard doors.
I have the T176, Dana 300, Dana 30, and AMC 20 in the black Jeep I bought. I'll rebuild all the running gear, truss the 20, change to 1 piece axles, install 3:54 gears front and rear, and put disc brakes on the rear.
Changing to YJ OME springs and N95 shocks for a better ride and 2.5/3 inch lift. Maybe a 1 inch body lift if need be to clear 12:00/33's on aluminum 10x15 rims. I may use 32's. Depends on what fits. BF Mud Terrain tires, not that it'll be in the mud much but they look good. Hummer steering box and HD steering links.
Reupholster the interior and install carpets with velcro so they can be easily removed.
Other than that, I haven't thought about it much.
Remember. 3 months ago I couldn't spell Jeep. I've been reading this and other forums non stop and came up with these ideas. As a matter of fact, now that I think about, I've never even driven a Jeep. I guess it must be fun, no?
