Personally I stay away from mopar. Basically my whole drivetrain (mopar) is getting tossed and going to have a Chevy motor transmission (whoops the only good thing on a stock jeep) and the NP231J thats on there right now. Then ford axles. 8.8 for now in the rear later on a 60 up front and 10.25 in the rear. (but thats when me and my wallet are ready to go all out) So mainly its up to what you like best. If your a chevy guy go chevy if your a ford guy go ford if your a mopar guy...well good luck.

1999 tj motor swap

So, having the 2.5l lil four banger in my tj, and tired of the wind being my mortal enemy, I figure I need a change... What v8, preferably fuel injected, would be the cheapest, easiest swap? Also, tranny and diffs?
