All parts transferred from old block to new, Promar, reman.

Before I put this in, I will replace upper control arms/bushings, replace heater hoses/flush heater core.

Since I will be installing transmission and engine, both, I would like to know, do any of you have a video of installing the two chunks, mated together, in one fell-swoop?

My condenser is still connected, in the typical, slanted, pose.

Is it possible, or am I hallucinating/delusional/suffering visions of grandeur, or, is it really possible? I have HFT cherry picker, leveler, many floor jacks, bottle jacks, block, etc.

Well when I put my new engine in I installed it with the engine trans and t-case all in one. However I didn't have to deal with my cond. I had a friend help and it was pretty easy with a HF picker

I abused my WJ today. When they go through the effort to have a sign made, a guy kinda feels obligated. So I obliged the locals, then promptly went and bought 2 new tires.....

I removed the front driveshaft due to hearing a popping noise at slow rolls and a grinding noise in 4x4.

Finally found the creek in the rear suspension, upper spring isolator was worn through. Spring was rubbing on the cup in just a tiny spot.

I just put my engine and trans back in mine last weekend as an assembly. Some things to note though;
  • My front crossmember is cut out for the TF front bumper, which makes it much easier
  • I didn't attach the tcase as it looked like it was gonna cause hangup issues
  • I did not have the AC or alternator attached
  • Initially I had the 08 intake mounted then I stuffed it in, was VERY tight, would've been much easier had I left it off for the install
  • I mounted the motor mount brackets (The "L" brackets that bolt to the frame) to the engine block mounts and left them semi tight so I could position them
  • 3 ratchet straps were used to aid in positioning, 2 on the sides and the 3rd went to the trans cable mount on the rear of trans for tilting it
  • I then shoved the engine into position, gently lowered it down while pushing it back until I could get the rear upper bolts (the ones that are slotted) started on the engine "L" brackets and buttoned up from there.
  • From there you can losen up the engine and tranny mounts to make it easier to install the tcase if you left it off

P.S. if you removed the transmission lines from the unit, put them back on before you stuff it in. They suck to re-attach under the jeep.

Honestly it wasn't bad with the tcase attached and my jeep has the cross member and is stock height. I didn't have my condenser in since the previous owner breached the system and it was empty.

Ha, sure wish I tried putting it in with my tcase on. Definitely dropped the damn thing on my hand at least once while mating it up afterwards

Removed this crusty rusty barnacle from the bottom of my transmission and replaced it with a pan.

Finished mucho maintenance on the WJ as I have to give to her to my daughter who's in need of a reliable DD.

Changed out power steering, brake, oil, coolant and transmission fluids. New battery, copper spark plugs, brake pads, wiper blades, engine air filter, rotated tires and replaced the original Goodyear Wrangler ST spare tire. That tires manufacture date was 0104

Just want to say many thanks to every-damn-body I've 'met', traded information and war stories with, as well as every bit of knowledge y'all have shared to help keep our WJs going.

I've already scored a replacement 2016 WK2 JGC Limited and have been reading up on this newer Jeep platform with all these danged bells, whistles and lights. I'll be hanging out more in the WK2 threads learning the ropes.

After the trans pan replacement I went through it the suspension tuning it in. That's the thing with adjustable arms, endless dialing in capability is a double edge sword to a retired suspension designer with OCD.
