Engine swap help ?

I have a 1997 jeep wrangler. I was wondering who makes the best hemi for it ? Or if there are any good conversation kits or websites that offer a conversion for it ? It's running low gears mostly for trails and around town. I'm running 33's with a 3 and a half inch lift looking to go higher and get bigger tires so I need the push from a hemi plus it will save me on gas. Anyone help me out ? I recently put a stinger on It. But this is how it looks today.

What rear axle do you have? There is a lot to swapping in a hemi and far more to running bigger tires than just lift size.

Are you looking to do the swap yourself?

Where are you located? Might help us with our suggestions as to where to go to source parts and what is available to you.

Of course there is a lot of info on it. Tried Google? http://www.google.com/search?q=tj+wr...rchBox&ie=&oe=

Save on gas? You do have a scope how much it will gost to do the conversion?

You need to do some research...start with my build thread linked below as well as this one...PM if you have any questions...If 50 state emissions are required then pay attention to mine and MGIMELLI's.

Giant Panda has several threads here documenting Hemi conversions too.
