I was going to have it done at a shop near me and was quoted approx 8-10k or more and that was for the chevy small block conversion. Would be cheaper to use my ram as a donor but not ready to scrap it

It's ridiculous what the labor costs and profit are for the swap. I know of a guy that had the SRT8 Hemi swapped and he had it done by a local dealer. Can't imagine what that bill looked like.

That's crazy. I still don't understand why Jeep just doesn't offer the Hemi from the factory. Everyone else is going retro...

I know a nurse who bought a vw camper 4x4 and he's taking out a loan to restore it and swap the engine. Guess it could be like a car payment. However, I'm happy to not have payments right now

I had an 04 RAM with a Hemi and I wish I had never sold that truck. Everyone knows the engine fits, they just don't want to offer the choice.

Plant security. The only time we have any fun is when bad weather rolls through.

And I thought I was the only one suffering. Oh how I would love to crawl in my bed.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I got stuck looking at a vid of a guy who took his pretty much stock jeep on the Rubicon trail. It was painful to watch what street tires, budget boost lifts and open diffs can NOT do.
