whats people's plans?
 
just wondering what everyone in ohio was planing on doin to their jeeps...

i have a 95 w/ the 2.5L in it. so far right now i have put a 4" suspension lift & 32's on it. and new front, rear & sides.

i'm planning on a 350 swap. think i can get a 350 & trans from co-worker. then i need to figure out other parts i need to get... so far from what i understand i need to get a ford 8.8 rear end, SYE, high pinion front, unsure what else or kind of stuff i will need... havin a brain fart wondering if my current rims will work w/ ford 8.8......also want to lift it up more once other things are done...thought 4" was enough ...lol i was wrong..

i wish it was easy for me like my car is. never worked on a jeep before since this is my 1st it's now being turned into another toy.

so figure i would see what others had done/planed to do.

Hey Jaydogg

Call Advance Adapters and tell the guy you want to change your motor. Ask him to send you the Jeep and Scout 1941 and newer, and theBuyers Guide Catalog.

When I was going to swap my engine, I got those books. A lot of good reading.

Good Luck.

Jaydogg25 03-18-2010 08:49 AM

ok kewl i will give them a call. i'm gettin some info here and there but nothing solid...probably bc there are so many ways to upgrade our jeeps..lol

Jaydogg25 03-23-2010 05:02 PM

just my luck....i was so worried about that trans this van had i was goin to buy off a co-worker i didnt think to double check the engine bc he thought it was a 350.....so today when i was looking @ things noticed it was a 5.0L not a 5.7L..... damn 305.../sigh

now looks like back to looking for a 350 & 700r4 trans..

It was about 30 mins before it got dark. I just kinda drove right on past...not being a stalker just showing the gf...she's about to get a jeep too. She liked it she even did the little tim allen man growl lmao

Jaydogg25 03-25-2010 12:13 PM

Lol.... i was probably relaxin watchin a movie, playin video games, or tryin to find a damn 350 & 700r4.....idk why this is being so hard...well to find one thats not stupid expensive

solo97tj 03-25-2010 02:21 PM

Jaydogg25 03-25-2010 03:13 PM
