Mitch502 Hello all,

Name is Mitch...had a 5.9L ZJ, 5.5" lift, etc, etc, etc. I had it parked at my parent's house while I was switching around cars, and someone ran off the road and totaled it. After insurance got done arguing with me, I came out retaining the Jeep and enough cash to buy another Jeep.

Ended up with a 2001 TJ. Planning to swap the 5.9L in soon. Nothing crazy, just want the stock power for ability to drive longer distances without downshifting going up hills and such.

Hopefully I can gain some technical knowledge for the swap here. I've done a lot of reading and hope I can get it done in the next couple months. I've sourced everything I have to have used minus a PCM (I can get one in a day probably), and only have mounts and a clutch/flywheel left to buy. Can't wait!

Bullets&Whitewalls New to the forum I have been wanting a jeep for a really long time and finally have the chance to buy my buddies cj5 project. So I am looking forward to what the forum has to offer. I have been lurking for a couple days now and there is a lot of amazing info on here as well as awesome builds. Ive been building customs and hot rods for a long time and have missed my wheeling days more than I ever imagined. So keep your fingers crossed for me as I am currently working the deal so to speak if it pans out I will end up with a 74 cj5 and a 84 chevy 3/4 ton truck with all new running gear. Obviously we know what happens next........ A mild stretch and some narrowing so I can still drive on the street. Thanks ahead of time because if it works out I will undoubtedly have a ton of questions.
