8hp70

Anyone install a hemi with the 8hp70 transmission?
I did search and didn't see anything.
This is on a 2008 and getting things together to do the swap.
I have heard the 545 RLE is required but haven't heard why.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

America's Most Wanted 4x4 does hemis with the 8hp70.

Chris at Hot Wire Auto probably makes a PCM and harness that will work; recommend giving them a call.

Thank you for the information. I will follow up on that. Just had to rebuild my axle, and now it's time to get the engine done.

CARB LEGAL HEMI SWAP

We have 5 JKs running the 8HP70, we are working with Jeep on this. We don't have a kit yet working on it. I have been working on it for 3 years and we are getting close, we should have something for SEMA .
