Other would disagree I ran a 4" for a long time with out a sye.

I wish I could find an the article but I know the ford 5.0 is more uncommon but was discussed as a good swap.

Actually I believe novak adapters have bolt on engine mount adapters for the 4banger engine to a mustang 5.0.

bstoner thanks guys, i hate to sound so stupid about this stuff but im a drag racer at heart and really want the v8 rumble!!! What do yall think bout a 5.0 ford conversion or 350, or lt1 conversion?

Nubby55 If you go with a 318 or 360 you should not need to re-gear, 4.10s and a good V8 on 33s would be sweet.

billytheyj Nah no need for slip yoke with a small lift or even some people run 5-6" lifts with out a slip yoke eliminator. Just may need a tc drop. Now to go v8 a dakota would be great because I believe they ran ax15s also. If you're just looking for running 33s then I say small lift some triming and a regear. It will do plenty with that 4 banger!

I have a 2.5" shakle kit for it, i have removed the flares and plan on triming the fenders. How much tire can i run? I also want more power and would love to stay mopar with like a 318 or 360 but do i have to run a adaptor plate with a ax15 trans that i plan on buying and why we are on the ax15 i have a ax5 in it what will work from it for the ax15 or what all will i have to have. Also with the small lift do i need a slip yoke kit and if so will some please tell me y. This is just a short list im sure i will have more questions later as the projects progresses.
Depending on how much you trim 33". I run 31" on stock height but have no flares on it. From what I have read if you don't even need a SYE kit. Your best bet to run a Mopar V8 is to just find a Ram or Dakota with a 5spd and snag the engine and tranny (Don't forget the computer and wiring harness!)

$800 is a killer price for a Jeep even if its a 4banger! Oh and pictures or it never happened!
