again for some just catching the last posts of this. This is the Jeep fuel pump/regulator assembly with a walboro 255 installed. No need to buy the swap fuel system

well the rear bumper showed up, I ended up picking up the matching rear bumper that goes along with the front. Both bumpers are coated in bedliner

got both bumpers as you see them from a seller on Ebay. they came already bedlined with shackles...they are Chinese but seem to be a decent product for the money spent. both bumpers I might have 610 shipped in them

update, around 1500 miles so far on this setup. encountered a few races from some diesel trucks and had great outcome against them. This AX5 has been holding up well.

I haven't fully tuned jeep yet for the cam, its basically a stock 02 file with idle adjustments.. truck seen 17.5mpg on the last tank of fuel....once tuned for cam I expect a higher mpg

kept hearing how weak this AX5 is and shouldn't ever be used with a v8. Odd as I have 2000 miles on this setup now and have even pulled a tandem axle car trailer with it

Wow, great build. I'm new to the forums just checking things out but I've never heard of LSX engines going in Wranglers. Totally awesome

So how much so you think you have in the build. Looks awesome. Looks like my 97TJ could be getting an overhaul.
