Re: chev v8 into88 wrangler

Just a recommendation: Dont keep the jeep tranny. Go with a Turbo 350 tranny. You'll loose overdrive but it is a short tranny and you'll have plenty of strength and the driveshafts will not have to be modified to work with the 350v8, T350 tranny. Call Hicks 4x4--they can sell you all the adapters needed and answer any questions you have. Or e-mail me, I'll be glad to help you with what I can.

Re: chev v8 into88 wrangler

I have done the swap and I would never keep a stock Jeep tranny behind a Chevy 350. I already destroyed one new turbo 350 and that was with an engine running on 7 cylinders.
