I've joined the jeep owners circle once again for the 4th time in 40 years. A jeep a decade, that's my goal.

Look whats coming home to live in my YJ...


2003 Chevy 4.8L LR4 Vortec with a 4L60E adapted to my NP231 with a SYE. Custom tune and Cold air intake on the motor brings it to around 295 HP and a touch over 300 ft-lbs torque. And I have FINALLY purchased all of the associated parts. Its going to be a heck of a job but I hope it will be worth it.

Too bad it's a Chevy

-------

'Yall got nothing on this.



Alignment is fucked.



And so is the D30.



But I don't care, it was bought to donate the 5.2L into the YJ. Can't wait to feel 220hp and 300ft lbs torque with a 5 speed manual behind it

The poor 30 didn't stand a chance...but what five speed are you throwing in there?

Good question. Still working on that one. I'd LIKE to go NV4500, but I'd settle for an AX15 or NV3550.

Jeep probably would have survived had I hit the gas before landing to level it out. It pitched nose first pretty hard..

Those fittings are pretty exposed.

I think I would have added a heat exchanger and a pump on the input side so it can be filled an the trail. The bumper could also be used as an air tank if both ends are capped off...

If you already have the 5.2, I would suggest stroking it. If you don't have it, I would suggest going 5.9. I did a 5.2 in my TJ last summer and to be honest, it is a little underwhelming. I am currently keeping my eye out for a 5.9 to take it's place. I used my stock AX15 and NP231. It is definitely better than the 4.0 that I took out, but it isn't the fire-breathing monster I was hoping for. If you're just looking for some more torque, you will probably be happy with it, but don't expect anything earth-shattering.

I know nothing about the specifics of the Jeep 5.2, but the older Chrylser 318s that were in the Dodge Trucks had plenty of power especially with a Cam, 4bbl, headers and dual exhaust. If the Dodge hop up parts work, I'd do the simple bolt ons before swapping out the engine.

Agreed. But conceptually, it really is a cool idea of idle space. Heck, I'm struggling with determining where I'm going to put an air compressor and tank! (Yes, fine, I'm putting some more stuff on the Jeep for this year's Rubicon run even when I said I wouldn't do any more a few pages back.)

The only problem for me in this setup is that the bumper has already taken some shots and I'm afraid I'd kill the water holding ability pretty quick.

hey guys, any idea what this bar is on the top of my jeep?




Previous owner said it was for kayaks, but I don't see how that would be useful for kayaks.

With a riser T bar inserted into the trailer hitch and that front bar, together it is perfect for carrying a yak or canoe on a softop jeep.

It may have originally been a light bar but I can see how it would be useful for kayaks. I have almost added a light bar to mine for carrying a canoe. If you scroll up and look at post #1983 you can see the YJ with the canoe on top, by using a hitch mounted back support/post with this front support bar you could strap down a kayak on top of your Jeep.
