I just put this transmission in my YJ behind a 5.7 Chevy Vortec motor. The transmission sits forward several inches. You will have to heat the shifter with a torch and bend it. You will also have to cut a few inches off the front of your tunnel to get it to fit and fab up a new cover. I wanted the motor up high and I didn't want to run cross member spacers so I had to run a 2" body lift with this setup.
