Chevy 4.3 in 1995 Wrangler

I have a doner 93 blazer 4.3 manual tranny and transfer case. Has anyone put all of this in a 95 YJ? If so what kind of trouble should I look for?

Its been done, should be if Im thinking correctly a NV3500 and NP231c. Need motor mounts wiring and other little things but is a good option for a swap. Google Novak adapters. They have lots of info on their site. search around a bit on here and there's several 4.3 build threads as well.

Thanks for the info. I do have the whole vehicle. Wiring harness, computer whatever else I would need. I know I will have to get motor mounts. I was wondering about the drive-shafts front and rear.

Just want to point out that a NV3500 will be a challenge to put in a jeep. I found out the hard way. A 3500 is a full size tranny with a tail shaft. It is too long for any kind of meaningful drive shaft to the rear wheels. And, the transfer case linkage would be a real challenge. Was too much of a hassle for me, so I found a NV3550. Worked out great.

That is the info I was looking for before I start this project. I knew someone has tried this before.
