i am looking for ideas. i am looking at swapping engine and tranny in 88 wrangler. jeep to be
a daily driver and light off-road to hunt out of. not really looking to build a screamer. sorta looking
for a combination between good and cost, but still being worth doing
what engines and transmissions ya'll recommend?
thanks for your ideas.

No matter what swap you do it is going to cost ya. I went with a Chevy 350/Turbo 350 combo, here are my reasons....I like the power increase(doesn't matter to you) BUT parts are very cheap for both the engine and tranny, that was my main reason. I looked into converting my 89 Wrangler to the 4.0 high output but it was actually cheaper to do the chevy conversion...just my 2 cents...you can see pics here http://members.tripod.com/iluvjeeps If you go to my website I give a lot more detail about the conversion

I would think a Chevy 4.3 with a 700r or the 3500NV would
be kind of sweet. One agin cheap parts. But the swap still
would not come cheap.

Chevy 350 for different reason. No matter what little town you're in while hunting, they will likely have
parts for the 350.
