I love the 4.3, that'd be a good swap in a Jeep too, and I know it's been done. The 4.3 is designed off of the small block 350, it uses the same bore even. I know quite a bit about s10's.

|shin||or why not go with a 3.8 supercharged out of a gtp...|

|deathphoenix99||I'm not saying don't put a 2.8 into your Jeep, but a lot of guys with the s10 that have 2.8's swap it out for the 3.4, which uses the same wiring harness and computer, just a bigger engine with more power. There's a few things they have to swap over...but if you already have access to a 2.8, it'd be better than a 4-banger.|

According to wikipedia.......(I know it may not be accurate.)

If AMC made a mistake, it was the 70s Matador coupe that sent the company down the tubes. Nice enough car (and I like Teague styled cars!), but it just didn't sell enough to justify the cost of producing it.
Another thing that really hurt AMC was the UAW. Yeah, that's not a PC subject to bring up in today as the U.S. races for equitable re-distribution of everything, but the UAW really bent AMC over. Those costs drove AMC into the arms of Renault and the rest is history.
With rare exception, AMC engines are AMC produced (Iron Duke 4-banger from GM for an exception). The 390 V8 was not a Ford engine, etc. The bodies were all AMC and they had many innovations (first all plastic interior is a weird example, but all cars are that way now).
Chrysler bought AMC in 1987 for one reason -Jeep. At least give AMC props for keeping Jeep alive after mismanagement by Kaiser.

|JODY HOWLAND||I have a 90 model also and I recently upgraded to hei ignition and it is a gm part|

|deathphoenix99||^Yea, the steering columns in the older jeeps is the Chevy truck column, I've grabbed parts from one in the junk yard once for my truck.|

|shin||like someone said before the 2.5 aka is the iron duke by gm.. if u know of a cherokee from 84-86 and it has a 2.8 in it. thats the gm 2.8.... if u have a 4.2 then it should have the ford ignition... steering columns are pretty much out of like the old chevy trucks.. back in the day i believe they used a buick 3.8 in some of the cjs... and believe it or not the ax15 trans is the same as the toyota r150f except the input and output shaft are different. and the aw4 i believe is also a yota trans. just different parts so it bolts in the jeep... there is some examples that i can think of right now.|

|superduty_5.9||Yes if it is a 2.5 4 cyl then it is a GM engine. Same one in the S-10's. Later 2.5's were different.|

This is very true. Not unusual to find GM or Ford parts in the AMC years.

|cheapjeep71||AMC means Any Motor Company. They used parts from anyone they could get their hands on. Some even used Motorcraft ignition parts. AMC was to poor to engineer their own parts. It was easier to rob from others.|

|Tony 76||Switch mechanic lol. Just kidding.|
|05-19-2011 06:59 PM|
|HotRod90YJ||Well, mine's a '90, so it would fall before the '92 Mopar influence. Thanks for the replies. The way the mechanic talked, this was out of the ordinary and not the way it was supposed to be.|
|05-19-2011 06:02 PM|
|Irongrave||last time I checked the YJ was an AMC product. the Mopar influence didn't hit until 92 and even then still mostly an AMC product. and being an AMC product they sourced a lot of GM|
|05-19-2011 05:19 PM|
|HotRod90YJ||So this kind of thing is normal? I wasn't sure if this was common, or if the PO made a bunch of these changes, which could be the reason for the problems I've been having with my jeep.|

|94impactyj||stock radiator cap is a GM part as well.|

GM parts on a Jeep
Had my Jeep for a few months. Had it tuned up, but had to get GM hoses to replace the old GM parts that were there so it would match up. Having some minor issues now, ordered a coil, but it had to be a GM coil to match up with the GM distributor. The guy even told me today that there weren't any Jeep parts on it, mostly GM. How can a Jeep (Chrysler) support parts from another make (GM)? Has anyone else run into anything like this?
