    Obviously I'm a little dense. Just realized there is a bit of a theme in the scrabble game...

    The latest is: I just got off the phone with the boy. He has a YJ that needs a clutch. So I am trading him rigs Wed and will take the tranny out have the flywheel turned and back together before Christmas. He is showing up the 26 and I think we will get it started then. As far as swaps go, this will work out very clean. However, it is a difficult swap to get the 98 and 99 electrical to work together. So, a better swap is the 5.2L like Wayne has in his TJ. Much easier. You do have to use an aftermarket header on the exhaust. This is not legal in CA so we couldn't do it. However if you have the 5 speed you can do it fairly easily. You will however have to do a similar thing like we did with the radiator because that 4.0 radiator will not cut it with 25% more cubes to cool.

    Got a friend here locally... The one I picked up my "spare" 4.0 from.. who swapped a 5.2L into his YJ that had a 4cyl in it originally... He said it was actually pretty easy swap once you do the mounts and such...

    Yes, it is easier. However, you cannot make them pass smog in CA. So this is the only way we can make an affordable swap. The 5.2L has an exhaust problem with the stock manifolds. They won't fit between the frame rails, so an aftermarket header needs to be used which won't make it legal here. The 4.7 doesn't have that problem.
