    wrangler v8 PRICE DROP

    selling to put money towards other cars. where to start at the bottom i think.
    brand new tyres-front brakesdiscs pads calipers-new front drive shaft ujs-axles blasted and painted-chassis blasted any rust dealt with and then repainted-suspension parts all repainted. 2" lift kit installed just a cheap rubber spacer type thing but it works. engine fitted using a advanced adapters kit. very comprehensive making it a bolt in job. kit comprises of bellhousing-clutch parts-flywheel-candlestick-slave-pipes-engine xmember-engine mounts-shifter bracket if you do a body lift i havent but you can. alloy radiator. engine rebuilt usining a summit kit stock bore 350 four bolt also fitted a summit lumpy cam. torker inlet and 600holley. aftermarket gauges fitted in dash to moniter the important stuff.and gps speedo. ive driven this about half a mile up and down the lane next to my work. it all works great with major grin factor. its on the button starts no problem charges good oil pressue no overheating electric fans fitted.
    i have put so much work into this jeep because i love it. ive had some fat cars over the years but this thing is such a grin even before the engine conversion it was fun but bloody slow and aweful on fuel. now with the chevy it should get much better mileage and five times the power of the old engine. we have relocated to the south coast and the jeep is still in scotland unfortunatly we dont have the space here to have all the toys so i think its time to let her go. its moted and on the button but needs a couple of fettling jobs to fully sort.

    the dipstick is missing. easily available but will need a bit of ingenuity to get it past the exhast manifold.

    the fan belt just skimms the bottom hose. i have a pulley to convert the belt to serpentine and theres enough adjustment in the mounts to pull the alternator forward to make this work.see pics.

    i dont know if the fuel gauge is working as i only had a gallon in the tank to get it running so not enough to regeister the gauge. it probably does work i just think its worth mentioning.

    the front prop has a broken bolt in the yoke. i have the bolt but never had the time to sort it.

    £4500

    No still there Been sorting some bits like the belt problem. Belt clears now as it’s been converted to serpentine but alternator needs a tweak to get alignment perfect. Pm me if you’re interested bud
