Big brown not coming my way...only better

Joining the swap team. 6.2 8l90. Thanks KNixon for supplying me with my speed crackpipe powerplant.

So I'm going from manual to auto on my '14. After purchasing my 6.2 about a week ago, little investigating on the console occurred. The console is the same for the rear on both so you just need to find the front half to do it which I did last Friday so the auto console is heading my way.

What's next? Collecting a camaro ss fan, front genright bumper and lift. I'm hoping to get the swap started in April since it's ski weather.

A local guy that has done many jeep swaps, just not the JKs is all, was going to do it, but I was too late it appears for my completion date. We were going to start it today but Motech’s lead time was a week to now 5 weeks due to too many gen 5 orders. I needed it done my the beginning of May. Guess I’m doing the lift now and the transplant in the fall. That’s fine. Glad I called before the engine and tranny got pulled. It will get done in September.
