RE: WJ 5.3L (now 6.0) Chevy Engine Swap
Should be running again by this weekend. Pretty straight forward switch but some of the wiring is hardwired so will be putting more connectors on this time.

Figured I'd bump this up in case some people didn't see it.

I gotta go back and read it again one day.

How's the coolant temp been all summer? Any problems?

RE: 99' Grand Cherokee 6.0L Chevy Engine Swap
Been running the stock radiator all summer and it wasn't in the best of shape. It never ran hot at all. Actually the 4.0l ran hotter. I just put a new rad in it the other night though since the old one sprung a leak.

No big issues. It's been WAY more reliable then I would have ever thought and not bad on fuel.

Cool.Cool

That's what I wanted to hear.

I don't know why the 4L runs sooooo hot. Some do some don't.Loony

Good to hear yours is good.

Figured I'd update this thread, it's been a while.

Made some DIY beadlocks that I got from Slicknic on crawlinbc.

Then this weekend I had a friend who's a bodyman by trade come help with the fender cutting in the rear. We cut them and then welded the lip back on for strength and to join the inner and outer fender back together. Came out very nice, you'd never know they were cut.

I don't know about using it much but a couple times a year I get the itch to do something to it.

RE: 99' Grand Cherokee Always Changing Build
Start your own thread. Allow us to see your build step by step.
If at first you don't succeed, Pick a better line!
