Re: Input

for the most bang for your buck,go with the 3.4
S.B. swaps are a beautiful thing but VERY cash intensive
(motor, tranny, t-case and axles)
just a cam in a 2.8 won't help much
the reason there is no fuel pump boss is that the general did away
with carbs around '86 and F.I. uses an electric pump in the tank.
All you need to do is mount an in-line electric on the frame by the tank.
(as close as you can, elect pumps are designed to push go juice not
pull it,with a few minor exceptions) Actualy on the frame is better because
you can carry a spair offroad and if it takes a dump you wont have to drop
the tank.

hey naekid, go to a couple of body shops around town and find out where they
get used parts from and give them a ring. The local (all So Fla) dismantler here
only wants around 6bills too. most of what I've seen on the net is over $1000
these motors come out of totaled wrecks and have lots of good miles left on them.
the guy down here will even drop it at my house, no charge.
