engine swap...i\'ve asked this before
OK, I know I've asked for advise on this plenty of times, nut here I go again. I've got a 1995 wrangler 4 banger with a AX5 tranny and np231 Tcase. Here's the deal: I want to swap a six cyl into it it, put a better 5speed and keep the 231 (basically changing the driveline to a CJ).
I have my choice of a couple 258's (unknown what years) I have a SM465 if I want it and I think the adapter plate is availible from Advance Adapters. I won't mind leaving it carburated for now, and then put FI on it. I still have to check about PA inspection laws about the swap.
Here's the run down:
1) If I can leave it carburated for now, what year engine with what components should I look for?
2) I would like to used the Jeep for over a daily driver and a woods toy. I wanted to put a Jeep 5speed in it with a hydraulic clutch. If not a Jeep tranny, what else might be a good option?
3) My stock axles should be strong enough for the other components. Any thoughts?
If anyone has any info I would appreciate it, Thanks in advance
