Started cutting the 2.5L motor mounts off. One step closer to the V8.

Turbocharging!!!! Or supercharging. I can think of a handful of 4 cylinder engines no bigger than 2.0L that are putting out more hp than the 5.2L.

Excited to start making longer strides. Already have most of the equipment I need to put the Jeep back together. Just need axles, a lift, shocks, shackles, misc bolts, Metalcloak fenders, Monstaliner, and some interior work and it's done

Looks like they done a good job for you. Looks good. If you don't mind me asking, what did they charge for that ?

Without you specifying what your offroad skill level is, how your YJ is built, or the type of offroading you do (if any at all), I would suggest fully welding the rear end.

But put that same set up on your 5.2L with the same performance add ons as that 4 cyl, then compare the two. There are many combinations to make horsepower, but if 4 cyl. put out as much as a V8, then top fuel cars, monster trucks, drag boats, etc would be using them. But they all use big bore, large cube motors. Hence, my previous statement.

Just an FYI.

Pay attention to the back of the rear bumper, as to the hitch receiver tube sticking out beyond the mating surface. The frame is flat across the back, and the bumper bolts on at each end, so if the back of the bumper isn't flat it will cause the inner bolts to only reach a few threads and not go completely through the mounting plate. I had this issue with my Smittybilt Classic Rock Crawler bumper. they didnt weld it flush from the factory and the Receiver Tube/Weld was hitting the frame and holding the center of the bumper out about 1/4-3/8ths of an inch from the frame.

Well its that time of the year to go pay the piper. Kentucky State property taxes on my Jeep, Blazer, and my Chevy one ton Turbo deisel truck/tow vehicle. Then the same thing next month, for my motorcycle, pontoon boat, and Seadoo. Looks like no extra cash for Jeep parts the next couple of months.

This is definitely one thing I Do miss about living in Ohio. No yearly property taxes on licensed vehicles in Ohio.

Yes it does suck. We all pay way too much in income and sales tax as it is. If it wasn't for all the corruption in taxation and the way the tax money is spent by our Liarticians, we would all have the cash to build our Jeeps as we see fit.

If you have to ask, then I would suggest NOT putting them in the front. It creates a whole different driving animal. When you're ready for it, you'll know it.

I prefer a rear locker - keeps the steering easier for a DD.

Where's the fun in that?! Everyone and their mother does a V8 engine, sometimes it's more fun just to boost up a smaller powerplant. Keeps things lightweight, especially for racecars that need to corner
