How Can a ZJ 5.2L Engine be put into a YJ
I think i killed my daughters '94 ZJ by t-boning a BMW Z-3 that a 16 year old kid drove through a red light Saturday. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] He and his girl friend got the worse of it. If I had been driving my CJ-7, that boy would have been dead. Sunday my son started thinking that the ZJ 5.2L would be awful nice in his '89 YJ. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I would like to know how hard it is to do the swap, if anyone makes kits, and if anyone has some lessons learned from doing this swap.
The YJ currently has a 4.2L, AX-15 tranny, NP 231 t-case, Dana 35 with Super 35 OX and 4.10 gears. Front axel is a stock Dana 30 with OX, 4.10 gears, and a posi-lock.
Thanks in advance
