He posted that the 5.0 weighs less than the 4.0L by 70LBS. so you'd actully need to buy a HD front bumper to keep the weight distrubution the same.

Ole yea, and as far as the fan not reaching into the jeep fan shroud far enough.... The 94-95 motors have a shorter accy system than the 87-93s. An even different buddy at work is the orginal owner of a 70' Boss 302, has a 427 cobra jet replica he built, and daily drives a 93' cobra. He's newest project is a 95 cobra he got for $400 without a motor. He bought a 92' 5.0 for it, and just recently found out the sn-95 stuff is shorter. So maybe if you'd use the 87-93 accy drive, then your fan might be a bit closer to the radiator.

Good to hear the stock Rad is working out.

I used the same driveshafts until scored a deal on advance adapter sye so i had to make a rear shaft. other than that it is an ax15 and 231 all hooked up and mounted to all the factory stuff. I know that about the 94-95 stuff being shorter but i thought that was gonna be a good thing. It is close enough that even when it has been 95 i have been able to let it sit and idle.

I'd put the shortest accessories on the engine I could find, and put the closest shroud on the rad, then move the motor/drivetrain forward as far as humanly possible. Relieve some of the short-rear-driveshaft blues.

and Good on ya for not giving in and going auto.

Not to meantion goofy-ing up the transfer case linkage too...

I intend to use everything from the adaptor back as stock as possible/simple. That is... If/until my D35 breaks.

Most mustang drive like jeeps anyway, haha. Even the 03-04 cobras feel like a 87' to me... well, ride wise, not so much power wise, haha.
