    Re: need engine swap info badly

    To swap engines you will need to install/weld in new motor mounts. Other than that it should bolt in. Honestly I wouldn't install a 258 though, there are plenty of other engine options out there....

    Does anybody know where to buy a new engine computer for a 1994 Jeep 4.0L m/t? The dealership quoted me at $540...I would usually prefer the dealer for this type of part but $540 seems outrageous....

    Re: lift shackles???

    Heavy duty shackles with moderate lift (1/2" or 1") aren't a bad idea imo, but I wouldn't go any bigger. Having a longer shackle can actually increase suspension articulation if you have longer lift...

    Re: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R vs BFG MT KM2

    Does anyone here actually have experience with the new MT/R with Kevlar? I would expect the new tread design to do better in mud than the old MT/R.

    I like my Magnaflow a lot, combined with a header and cam it has a nice deep rumble but not so loud it's annoying.

    Re: Fuel PSI question

    PSI should be around 40 I believe. Disconnecting the regulator should actually increase fuel pressure, I would keep it connected to avoid damaging the pump or causing a leak. There is a number of...

    Re: Fuel PSI question

    The ECU controls the fuel pump via the ASD relay which in turn controls the fuel pump relay; several sensors give input to the ECU to control this. I would try replacing the fuel filter, and if that...

    Re: Shackle reversal, should I do it?

    I would do it, I reversed the shackles on my CJ7 and never looked back. It will ride and handle MUCH nicer, especially on bumpy dirt roads.

    Re: [Pics]My Jeep is wrecked... can this be fixed?

    Jeep vs car: Jeep wins (well, usually). I agree with everyone else, time for an aftermarket bumper and gas tank skid, and have a good shop inspect the frame on the other guy's dime.

    The HEI is more common, it is a more simple system as you mentioned. Are you sure the TFI is only 30,000 volts? I could have sworn it was more than the HEI. Either way, I have used both and I didn't...
