I would like to know how they run the motor off of the stock jeep module. After that i would like to see that thing tearing through some mud or rocks

Nice! :clap:

Interesting to see them running 450lbft / 610 NM mated to a transmission rate for 368lbft / 500 NM. Hopefully they are over-enginered. The NAG1 in the JK had a bit more wiggle room.

It would be nice to be able to option the 8HP75 HD version of the ZF8 for a gasoline build without tieing it into the purchase of the diesel, for just such conversions. :please:

Post up pics of those JL engine swaps!

Just saw this one from Bruiser Conversions:

Impressive time to market, clean looking build. Wish they could do it for the 6spd.

Glad to see it took less than a month for someone to drop in an LS

It’s just a matter of time before you see something to mate up to the 6 speed available. I’m in no hurry though. I’m sure I’ll enjoy the 3.6L just fine for a while

When they say with the Chrysler computer, they might mean a hybrid setup, where the LS motor is controlled by the GM ECU, and the Chrysler computer runs everything else, but still thinks it runs the engine.

Could be wrong!

Either way, certainly a fast up and running swap no doubt.
