If you decide to do this I'll be watching. It's always a good thing to find out new ways to improve our rides.

WOW they are proud of their tools aren't they?

Get it done so...

It might be.

I have no issues with anyone using which ever engine platform the want. I am a fan of EASY and so again FoMoCo just isn't as popular. I honestly don't know why it isn't since the 5.0...

I don't have time to read it right now. I thought I had read someone once saying the 5.0 didn't fit as well into the engine bay.

Also what year did the 5.0 stop being made by Ford?

I still...

I don't know too many people who have done a Ford swap into a TJ. Not saying it can't be done but it isn't a common swap.

Either a Dodge 5.2 (318) or a 5.9 (360) ...

I'm not knocking you for wanting to do the 4.0 swap over a V-8 swap it's just that for almost the same amount of work you can do the V-8 swap.

To do the V-8 swap you'd need a Dakota bellhousing if...

The thing not mentioned yet is what is your build date? It seems the 01-03/96 TJ's had some wiring that is different than what the wiring diagrams show.
Of course my TJ is a 01/96 build date so I...

I honestly don't know how much of the wiring harness you'll need to change but people who swap a Hemi into their older TJ's make it work.

I'd look at some of the swap threads for swapping a Hemi...

You have a CCD dash and are trying to use PCI type parts which won't work. You either replace the wiring going to your dash or get your parts from an older TJ. I think trying to mix the older & newer...

I was in Sturgis in 2019 the week after the Rally so yes I totally understand. I had a LOT more fun with less crowds.

I've wanted to do EJS but am not a huge fan of crowds so it worries me a little.
