Re: Wrangler or XJ 4.0 for my Scrambler?
Thanks Chris. Good to know about all that other 'stuff' adding (unnecessarily) to the already confusing-enough wiring. (I'm confused enough as it is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img], "added confusion" I do NOT need!)
Also good to know about the CPS issue. I did not think it was going to be 'that hard' to do... but if it challenged you, I'm guessing it's w-a-a-y over my head at this point.
I 'wanted' to do the 4.0/AW-4 swap, but kinda gave it up when I saw that it entailed lengthening/shortening my driveshafts... figuring it'd be easier & cheaper to just do the CPS 'locating thing' myself.
My understanding is that most of the 4.0's @ this "cheap yard" are mostly XJ's... so I'm going to have to go look and hope I can find a Wrangler, or lacking that, maybe a base model Cherokee. (I'm also hoping - but realistically not expecting - to find an OBDI-era motor to keep it as simple as possible.)
So then, if I do have to 'settle' for an XJ 4.0, should I 'convert' it to mechanical fan config, or leave as-is w/ electric set-up?
