Motor Swap
Hi! I have a 97 wrangler 4cyl, my motor is basically shot haha. I want to do a 12v motor swap. I was wondering what exactly do i need?? I am starting to buy parts but i am not sure everything that i need. Any help will be very helpful! Thanks!! :)

A 12volt dc electric motor? You will need lots of heavy gauge cable, big hp electric motor, lots of batteries. Oh Ya also a motor controler.

That's a ton of weight to be putting in a jeep man. You may want to think of a 4bt, which is still plenty heavy, but smaller and lighter than a 12v Cummins.

You could always do a gas V8 too.
