been there... done it... Wish i could tell you more... it was pretty striaght forward... use the chevy tranny and t-case... don't bother with a plate adapter or whatever... biggest thing is setting you motor mounts, and building a crossmember that works, try and get the engine/tranny as far forward as possible, because rear driveshaft length and angle is a pain in the ass... the rest is pretty straight forward... Let me know if you run into problems with the wiring... this was my biggest problem... even that wasn't too bad once you riip out everything attached to the PCM.

87 YJ, 2.5" BL, 3" Susp Lift, 8274 warn. 31" MT/s, 350 SBC/SM465/NP205, no lockers, and beat to shit.
