Bout to blow the motor I think!!!! Major ticking in top end doesnt sound like its under the valves though sounds more like injector rail, or in the intake...

anyway pretty sure Im not going to be worth trying to keep it on the road anymore...insurance is up , blah blah blah , shes served her road service,

so what are my options guys ? what kinda motor can go in it ,, any options are worth looking into,...

I have a set of 60's in buddies garage

chevy motor? any diesel options???? Fawk even eletric,

looking for something that isnt too much work to get in .. I can always keep the 318 thats in there or a used one anyway just to avoid tooo mch work I hate work

Its going to end up a trail rig only prolly and camping and shit..

MONEY I dont make money , I simply make more debts.. You should know that with the money you make ya meatball lololol I talked to the guy who has the 60 \70 combo but it is pass drop which means I have to cut out floor panel or find a way around that, Its just a pain in the ass when you have 5 different people telling you what works and what doesnt work,, wether it be dodge or ford or chev...

I read an article on Kevin Guntries Jeep thats sick but I dont have 15000+ to throw around at once but I could do it by next spring.. this guy is running onw of the most capable grand cherokees out there and he is on his is on his stock tranny and motor http://www.jpmagazine.com/featuredvehicles/154_0709_1994_jeep_grand_cherokee/index.html

was told a amc 360 would go right in with some minor mods.. But now have found out you can do a nice big ol 383 stroker with same amounts of work , other then a cowl hood.. Fuck I dont know.. then the issue arises about the tcase ..clockable or not ,, pass side or driver side drop axles.. so much ..

I thinkn Nutbar needs to get 2 tattoo sleeves doesnt he ,, lets take a vote.. lol
