1995 jeep wrangler it has the 2.5 I want to go to the 4.0 I know I'll need the ax15 transmission and wiring harness and computer just don't know if I have to change transfer case and the front and rear ends
Everything in the drivetrain needs to be swapped. Your axles have too short of a gearing, you'll be running that engine way over what it should be on the freeways with 4.10 gears.
Why bother with a 4.0 swap? If you're going to go through all of the hassles of swapping the engine, wiring harness, transmission, transfercase, axles, re-routing your exhaust, etc. etc. and ontop of all of that getting it all legalized, then why stop short with a simple 195hp engine?
For the sake of legality purposes, YES you are required by LAW to have ANY engine swap legalized in ALL 50 states...Not everyone lives in a smog Nazi state xpress.. Not everyone needs to get swaps legalized
Mind telling me where i'm supposed to report my engine swap to? Lol..Xpress said:Rik, the 4 cylinder likes to run around 3000rpm and 70mph for cruising, the 6 likes to run closer to 2000 rpm, so you definitely need to go to larger tires, around 33" for 4.10 gears to create a more perfect match.
However nobody in their right mind would put 33"s on a D35... For Jeeps sake I broke mine on a paved road with 29" tires, and I was coasting
For the sake of legality purposes, YES you are required by LAW to have ANY engine swap legalized in ALL 50 states...
Saving my own ass for when the finger pointing goes about..
Don't like Cali? Go move somewhere else then.
