Your just jealous you dont have an LJ. The overhang is well worth it, I would not go back to a regular tj on a bet.

I'll be honest, I need a tire carrier and the main thing keeping me from buying the Treks setup is the fact that there's rumors of a Savvy one. So on that note the open communication helps.

We'll the LJ is getting some new stuff. The axles have been ordered in anticipation of the V8. Blaine is going to install a Currie Fabricated 9 in the front and a RockJock in the back.

The Under Armor has been reinstalled with the latest version that the early adopters will be getting.

Hopefully, I'll be getting some pictures up later. Ooh, there may even be some spy photos of stuff on it!

You Tease....

You might have discussed somewhere, but which V8? HEMI?

could it be anything but a hemi? to many ls1's out there already, and hotwire can make a harness for a hemi into a tj, it would be the easiest way to go IMO. I wasnt happy with the 4l60e tranny in my jeep, i like the 545rfe transmission alot better, shifts real nice.

What are you doing with said skid?

I wish i could do all of that with my LJ. Everything that you are doing to this one is basically everything I want to do to mine one day. Including an engine swap.

You know you want the 6.7L Hemi, but what about kicking it up a notch and getting the 8.4L V10 from a viper.... 600HP

Nope, this is just to make the Unlimited a bit more fun to drive. G has enough go fast stuff that the Unlimited just needs a bit more giddyup. A 5.7 will do quite nicely.

No need? And a diesel would be a greener and more powerful route BUT...nobody wants to run a cummins 6 in a jeep...so awesome that would be..Tow the Buggy to the trail with an LJ pulling 400hp and 900 ft lbs of torque

and the 6.7L is the cummins not the Hemi there is the 5.7 and the 6.1L Unless I'm mistaken.. which given my incomprehensible expanse of knowledge on the subject

is 99% likely that I'm wrong

Ok... I didn't read every post. But, if you've switched gears from JK axles to a Currie Hi9 and a RockJock, you must have a JKD44 front housing lynig around somewhere?

EDIT: Never mind, even if you were selling it cheap shipping would kill me :

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

The LSx motor in a Jeep are great but they take a little bit more work to make California Smog legal. Since I'm hoping to make this my Daily driver I want something that will be easy to smog. I'm looking for a 2006+ 5.7 Hemi from a 4x4 pickup.
