    I certainly will! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sALq-nRqo5s

    Seems like this engine should be a better candidate for a diesel swap than the old 4BT. Have you had any problems with having the engine revving to close to redline on the highway? That seemed like a potential problem with 5.38 gears and 40s with the 4BT swap that Bruiser has done, highway rpms at 75 - 80mph being too close to the 4bt redline.

    I am running 3:73 gears on 37's and I can run at 70 mph at 2200 rpm. The Jeep redlines at 3200. The new Dynatracs have 3:54 gears so I should be able to run a little lower RPM.

    Very cool build. Was wondering about the body lift as well but never thought about it being needed to clear some of the engine and parts, which totally makes sense. Did you get a video of the dyno run?

    you can run 40's on a lower lift if you wanted and keep the long arm. as for the body lift that makes sense for engine clearance

    That's not too bad. I guess you could just run a lower geared xfer case like an Atlas to get the low crawl ratio back. Does it still crawl at a decently slow speed with a 4:1 low range?

    It actually does, even with my 3:73 gears. The Dynatracs are coming with 3:54 gears, and I still think it will crawl nicely.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
