    Default 2.5 - 4.0 motor swap underway

    ok so im cheating and copying the entire thing from my thread on JF http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=576008


    OK so few weeks ago I blew my 2nd 4cyl, i decided i was done w/4 bangers so i shopped around and found a 6cyl/5spd trans/t-case/computer/harness for $900 i went and picked it up and started pulling the 4cyl, i don't have pics of me pulling the trans or case but here is some pics of me pulling the 4cyl, here is the link the my photo bucket account [/URL]since i told my GF to take lots of pics, she took over 100 just of me pulling the motor, although i didn't keep all of them,


    list of things needed on next page, i will update it as i go

    also i know i am to skinny, but not even the Army was able to fatten me up, so deal with it

    1st i had to borrow a few factory spares so it would even fit on the trailer,



    nice easy unload, just lift trailer w/forklift



    the start



    even the GF got dirty and helped out (thats my dad i cant thank him enough)



    rest is just random stuff we removed, i wont lable it all





    yes my dad is sitting up under the jeep





    all undone

    Just another lifted, locked and cut up TJ, Have Cummins, will tow

    finally stole the GFs phone and uploaded the pics here you go, sorry they quality isn't that good its from a camera phone

    cut old mounts off, gotta love plasma cutters!!




    all gone



    well remember my engine hoist? well it wouldn't work due to bumper sticking out so far, so instead of taking bumper off, we pulled out dads F550 work truck with hoist




    getting motor in place



    checking for clearance



    we then marked mounts, pulled motor, tacked mounts and tested motor again, mounts were to far back,



    so moved them up little bit and tried again

    they fit so dad fully burnt them in





    his welds are getting better, i dont think these are going anywhere, but just to be on safe side be are making braces this week,






    that is all for now, once we make the supports i will bring the jeep home and things will fly then, also if anyone has a truck and would be kind enough to tow my jeep home that would help alot, i will give you money plus gas, i have trailer
