This was a little video I was looking for.

My 39.5 TSL drag tires..... they plump when you spin 'em!

http://img531.imageshack.us/my.php?i...agtiresoh9.flv

It was last year, but I think I ran 1-4th gear in the video.. I could have went into 5th, but didn't want to overspin my tires :-)..

BTW, what's up with the 13 people saying they'd rather have a 2.5L 4 banger Same people would prob. rather have my blown up 4.0L

You've busted some good parts, hope I can make it more than 3-4weeks this time.

Yes the parts I have broken have been over 4-5 years of wheeling at least two day's a month.

Most of the time I know I am getting ready to brake before it brakes.

I have never broke it driving down the road or taking it easy....

Thanks for checking Bryan, I'll have to do some checking myself before I can get you a price. I may just have a friend fab some up for me but Amos is right, if you guys were to sell those mounts on Ebay or something, you could make a few bucks AND help guys like us make a TJ what it should be I know there was a company out there selling a 5.0L bracket for YJ's that was going for about $150. Of course not everyone wants to pay that, but at the same time not everyone can make their own.

Hey amos, you know which alinment tool to use ? I ordered the chevy, but my buddy said it might need a jeep one, and the parts store told me they don't sell just the alinment tool for TJs.

I just used a chevy truck one and wrapped the end in electriacal tape until the tip was the right size for the pilot bushing. otherwise check another store and get one for a jeep but i just used the chevy truck one.

Those are pretty interesting...Advance adapters has something similar but it's about $150. Maybe I can get a package deal if I order it all at once Probably not, but that does look like a good option. BTW, seeing all these pictures you guys are posting is extremely helpful for someone in the planning stage. Thanks a lot!

i would defiantly order from advance adapters but check into www.tellico4x4.com they sell a.a stuff and it is cheaper. advance adapters will go above and beyond when it comes to helping you with your swap. Also seem to have more included for the price than novak. Use what you want but i am sharing my experience with advance adapters as a great one.

I humped it by myself today, and didn't get very far. My buddy will be over tomorrow, and hopefully, we can get the thing in and bolted down ready to run. I had to take an hour nap today at work I'm go'n to bed.

I was reading on another forum that the computer you want for a 5.0L swap is the auto computer, regardless of whether you are using a stick or auto. Supposedly this is because the auto computer's tune is more agressive to help overcome the torque converter aka slushbox. Any thoughts on this? I think the A9L is the computer I'm seeing the most out there.

I had to have my computer reprogramed to work properly in my jeep..... But I did several mods to the motor so that was my plan all along.

I would recommend tuning what ever computer you put in.. My Jeep ran so much better after the reprogram and tuning.

I'm running the A9L, but the auto version. Supposed to be the same, just for automatics.

Rock Dawg 97124 when you say "tuned" did you use a Eprom style chip or something ?

I had 6 hands on the 302 today. I had to removed the motor again so we could shorten the shaft a bit more ( advanced A tells you to take off 1/4'' ). With 3 of us, it was about 9000% less stressful. I was telling the guys that its a shame I changed the motor/tranny two different times in my SRT4 100% alone in the garage, but my V8 jeep takes three of us

Anyway, get ready for a shot storm of pictures.
