Okay so I'm going out on a limb on this project. I know its been done in YJ's and TJ's but ive never seen them in an MJ (or XJ for that matter). 

What I'm wanting to do is swap a 5.2L Magnum out of a 1999 Dodge Durango into my 1991 Jeep Comanche with a 4.0L, AX15, and NP231. I have the chance to buy this donor for $500. Its a 1999 Dodge Durango with a 5.2L, 44RE, and NP242(if i had to guess). As far as getting this motor to fit, that shouldnt be a problem, but the wiring harness and computer will be a different story.


Is there anybody out there that can give a little advice on this swap?


And if anybody wants to put their negative comments about "thats a waste of time" or "just drop a chevy 350 in it", i don't want to hear it. Hopefully someone can help me here

1986 4cyl auto 4wd used a Chrysler trans. Get a small block mopar 904 and you can take the tail shaft and stock off the 4wd trans install on 904. That gives you a 4wd trams that bolts up to your 318 with no adapters and uses stock trans mount.you just have to make motor mounts.
