My bro inlaw just bought a LJ but he needs a motor for it, so I was wondering what will bolt in like a sammi or tracker. He doen't want to do anything to much to it it's just going to be a little bush truck. And if anybody have a running motor that will bolt in please let me know[cheers]

I believe that t-case has like a 2:1 reduction ratio when driving on the road. Thats why they can get away with such a puny motor. Putting a 1.3L in that would be choice, cheap on gas and perfect power. But the stock replacement would be a good choice as well.

see... lj's... pretty much need lj tranny's.

they have got a 1.8 high range, which means that is about the same highrange as a 8:1 case.

they have a 3:1 low range, which is nice, with the factory 4.56 axle gears, again nice.

what would be a nice swap would be a 327 in front of it, with a th350, then get bigger axles.
seriously, i'm not kidding. worked with a guy who had that set up when he was younger, stock case stood up not bad, snapped one eventually, but put sammi axles under it, and kept blowin the rears out of it, on 33's went everywhere he ever tried, so long as he didn't blow out an axle, he made it.
