I have done 5,000 miles without trouble or a break down.(Other than running out of gas.) I kept the rear D44 with ARB locker and put in upgraded axle shafts. It has held up to me launching it on the street. The transfer case internals were upgraded as well.
I am working on the GMLAN CAN to Chrysler PCI code right now to keep my stock instrument cluster. https://twitter.com/Azxiana/status/1...893448/photo/1

|longhorn84||Good one, that's a gen 4 and you have a legit garage and some intense fabbing skills! Hows it holding up? Did you change the rear end?|

I'm looking to make a comprehensive guide to doing an LS swap into a TJ. I'm compiling all the videos and threads that have helped me plan my swap. My goal is to list them below and then later make a full doc with links to each video. Are there others out there that you know of that I don't have on my list?

Here is my experience. I asked Wayne about changing the VIN in the GM PCM and he said he can only change it to another compatible GM vin, not the jeep vin. Mine comes up as an 05 silverado i believe. When i took it in for emissions, i told them it was swapped and would pull a GM vin when plugged in. All they did was change the engine size spec for my Jeep vin within the CT emissions system, so it will forever be 5.3 liters. It was a fairly painless experience, just ensure you are otherwise emissions legal for your area. They nearly failed me for a non-op check engine light, but i relocated it to the knee panel. It happens to be fairly obscured by the wiper stalk, which is why they missed it.
Reading back to your post, i am astonished that they are trying to plug the thing in at all. Its pre-obd2, so it should be rolled and sniffed. You would pass with flying colors with all the modern equipment. Maybe find another spot and not tell them? You could get the cj8 with a v8 right? If they really care, tell them its an EFI modified 304/360. No one will be the wiser.

|cj7ole||Ask Wayne, he has probably been there before. Must be something in the ECU that id's the donor, maybe that can be part of the flash? BTH mine was from an '07 Tahoe, he did the ecu and harness in 2011. Sure glad I don't live in Kalifornia. I like JayMcJay's approach.|

So that you're not lying, I'll tell you it came from a 2005 Camaro.
Hey, it came from a 2005 Camaro.
Now you can say 'I was told it's from a 2005 Camaro'
If it turns out that once he connects up to it he is able to tell you that it's from a Tahoe somehow you'll stand corrected. you can then say 'huh. weird. I was told it was from a 2005 Camaro. I'll have to look into that'.

|JayMcJay||Tell him it's out of a 2005 Camaro. Problem solved?|

start off by saying I did the 5.3/4l60e swap into a 1981 cj8,put all the emissions parts in cats,o2 sensors,charcoal canister, purge valve,tank pressure sensor,check engine lite,sent the harness and computer to wayne,have driven it about 500 miles now with no cel so far.The jeep had the 151 in it before the swap,now with the v8 its a lot of fun.So now I take it to the referee to get the blessing and he askswhat I did to it before hooking it up to his computer,so I tell him I got the donor parts from a 2005 Tahoe and he stops me rite there and says I couldn't do the swap because the Tahoe is considered a medium duty machine and the scrambler is a light duty machine(wtf).If anybody has any ideas please help I don't want to just give up on this project,to much time and money to just forget it. All ears

|bkh98||I have a brand new unopened Novak emulator I'm not going to use that I'll sell.|

I did not go the route of designing a circuit to send to the Jeep computer, even though that is within the scope of where I work and what I do. Instead, I went with an all mechanical setup that still uses the Jeep crank and camshaft sensors. It cost less than $100, but there were quite a few hours of machining time for a camshaft sensor trigger and for a trigger ring that goes on the GM balancer. It's not the simplest setup, but it has worked well so far. If I were to do it again, I would just purchase the Novak emulator and be done with it.

It is something I intend to sell as product in the future so I need to setup a vendor account here once I am back in the USA.

|cobra30689||Gotta pick some brains here if I may.....planning a swap on a YJ. Thinking about going with a GM NV3500 (NOT the Jeep 3550, a lot of the forum searches I have done manage to confuse the two) with a 5 bolt case flange, and a hybrid 231 transfer case, front half sourced from an older S10....as they are still dirt cheap in my area. Has anyone gone this route? My concern is the length....as I have never seen one closeup and have no frame of reference. Thanks in advance....|

Do you mind sharing what you did to get the tach to work? So I could atleast go that route.
Trying to stay away from the whole emulator thing.
