I've the opportunity to swap a new motor & gearbox in my 82' SJ410 (the motor has been broken for 5 mounth.)

I can choose for the same price beetween a 3.5L V8 from a range rover, known for his lightweight. and with a 4.0L from a jeep cherokee xj. I think that the jeep motor is not a divorced Tcase, so I will have to swap the tcase too. I don't know about the weight, and if I have enough place to install it. Does anybody have try this before or could help me?

You have enough room in the back seat for these motors, may have to upgrade your rear suspension!

the 4.0 is tooo big, i would measure the rover motor n tranny to see how much larger it is compared to a zuk motor n tranny. not sure on the rover motors personally. if close, i say go for it.

I've got the Rover V8 in Rhinosaurus - it's tight.
You'll need to use the Buick water pump
You'll just about fit a big oil cooler behind the grill but the rad will have to go elsewhere
