1976 fj40 engine swap

Hey, does anyone know if a jeep 4.0 engine and transfercase/manual trans can be swapped into the fj40. The output for the transfer case is on opposite side on the jeep 4.0. The only way I know is to swap the jeep axles along with the motor.trans, but I really dont want to do this cause the stock fj40 ratio is 4.56 that I want to keep. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

There's no point to do any of that. All a waste of time and resources.

1976 land cruiser. I know its a lot of work but I need a fuel injected engine, carburetors do not work very good at 13,000 ft elevation.

flip the axles over to match the T-case output.
that'll work good.

Why not put a diesel with a turbo in? I would think that would be a lot less work & if you got a 3B or even a 1HZ & turbo it. On the 1HZ you could turbo it mildly similar to ‘turbo-normalizing’ if you are concerned with pushing it to hard.

Cheers, Allen
