whats people's plans?

just wondering what everyone in ohio was planing on doin to their jeeps...

i have a 95 w/ the 2.5L in it. so far right now i have put a 4" suspension lift & 32's on it. and new front, rear & sides.

i'm planning on a 350 swap. think i can get a 350 & trans from co-worker. then i need to figure out other parts i need to get... so far from what i understand i need to get a ford 8.8 rear end, SYE, high pinion front, unsure what else or kind of stuff i will need... havin a brain fart wondering if my current rims will work w/ ford 8.8......also want to lift it up more once other things are done...thought 4" was enough ...lol i was wrong..

i wish it was easy for me like my car is. never worked on a jeep before since this is my 1st it's now being turned into another toy.

so figure i would see what others had done/planed to do.

Hey Jaydogg

Call Advance Adapters and tell the guy you want to change your motor. Ask him to send you the Jeep and Scout 1941 and newer, and theBuyers Guide Catalog.

When I was going to swap my engine, I got those books. A lot of good reading.

Good Luck.
