Jarrodbeckstead I'll be dead honest, I couldnt care less as long as its semi-affordable. Not looking to hit the rubicon trail but some balls wouldn't hurt.

444 What kind of engine do you want to put in? A 4.0? A 4.0 based stroker? A v8?

Engine upgrade requirements

Hey all, blew up my 2.5 and the machine shop says cylinder walls are too thin to remanufacture. Thinking about a bigger block but was t sure what I'd need to upgrade besides the ax-5 to a ax-15 transmission and the ECM. Anyone have any info or suggestions? I was also considering swapping in a crate engine but assume I'll run into issues with the bell housing and the tranny shaft fitting into the block. If ANYONE has ANY info or suggestions I'd appreciate whatever you've got.
