  1. Hi all! I wanted to start a build thread for the 4.0 stroker build that I've started to get input and advice as I'm going along. I'm learning as I go and it would make me feel a lot more comfortable if people with more experience looked through what I'm doin. My intended use for the truck is a dd, something with more power and just to make it really really cool. So getting into it.... Starting with a 1989 MJ with a tired 4.0 with a blown head gasket and high oil pressure. 5 speed to a ford 8.8 in back. The motor is completely ready to come out at the moment, gonna pull it in a few
  2. Hey all thanks for letting me join your group of misfits. Got my 88 Manche Pioneer on a trade, was in better shape than my 87 Manche so I sold it, and my parts Cherokee. So now here I am digging into Big Red. Live in Gig Harbor, WA. That's it for now.
  3. Ok so i have a plan here and i need information, parts suggestions, or technical help. I appreciate everything i can get on this odd thought of mine. SO i just got a Chrysler 360 V8 from a family friend. I was going to swap my I-6 with this but i need to know if the make an adapter plate for the AX-15,or if the motor will bolt right up to my AX-15 trans, or if i would be better of swapping engine trans and all. I really need to get a better understanding of how this can all workout before i jump into it headfirst and pocket book at the ready. so if anyone could get me technical i
  4. So my engine just quit on me. Anyone know a good place to buy a re manufactured one for a 1989 4cylinder??
  5. I have swapped a gm 4.3 into my 86 MJ. I used the Novak motor mounts and redrilled my factory transmission support/ crossmember. I have plenty of clearance at the front of the engine and I'm looking for advice on the radiator. The radiator had over 280,000 miles on it when the 2.8 finally went. I've already dropped in the 4.3, mated 700r4 and 231C from a gmc s15 jimmy. Will the stock style 2.8 radiator cool the 4.3 or will I need to upgrade? If I change to the 87 up radiator, will I have to change my hood latch/ front end? Thanks for the help!
  6. Will a I-6 and auto tranny from a 2006 LJ work in my '87 MJ? I'm told there might be some electronic concerns that would make it a pain. Have any of you performed this swap? Thanks, Doug
  7. Ok guys, let me start off by saying that I'm swapping from a 2.5L/AX4/NP207 to a 4.0L/AX15 (external slave)/NP231 or NP242 (not sure which yet). Past few nights, I've been working on tearing out the 2.5 in my '86. I have a '90 XJ with AW4 as my donor. However, lets forget about it being an '86 for a second because I have a few general questions about the 2.5 to 4.0 swap that I haven't quite been able to find in the vastness that is the interwebz... Here goes (they'll be more as issues arise): On the AX4/5 equipped MJs, the end of the exhaust downpipe, where it stops just behind the tran
