Engine Swap for TJ in Georgia
 
So I basically plan to find a Ram 1500 4x4 as a donor and do a conversion....to be honest with you guys I have never done something like this before and I dont even have enough tools to pull a project like that...still in school and living on an apartment that I rent in Atlanta...so my question is about someone that is reputable that can make this swap here in Georgia...i plan to source all the parts needed and hey Im willing to take a week or more off at work to help out in the swap but i just need someone with knowledge and talent that can do the welding of the engine mounts and any other modifications.

jandaso 04-12-2013 09:02 PM

Yes sir ..... looking for the donor as we speak ..... going to use the motor tranny, computer and tc.... trying to get as much info as i can to source the other parts

I saw a guy on pirate 4x4 that wanted the hemi swap but opted for this because of price and availability.

Ohhhh yeah ... my first choice was the LS1 the motor from a corvette until i saw the price for a motor lol

MosesTJ 04-12-2013 09:23 PM

I would just like to have 300hp like the new motor.

Yeah, that is a lot from what I've seen on this forum. I have a garage but I have never done a motor swap and do not have a cherry picker so all I can do is assist someone else. If I had the experience I would offer.
