Knowing I wanted to do an ls swap ive been researching what to buy and do in the process. Would it make sense to pick up a jk frame and perform the swap on there? Also can perform axle swap and lift at same time. Not sure how much more work it might cause doing it this way.
2010 JKUR, 4" Pro C., 3/4" f Daystar spacer, 5.38's, EVO sleeve/gusset/custom trussed, Rear Ten Factory axle shafts, 1.5" wheel spacers, Pro C. 17 x 9 wheels, 38 x 14.50 x 17 MTR's, SuperChip FP, no fenders, B&M Tranny cooler, Magnaflow, Fr./ Rr. frame hacked off, HD Balls
I did a lot of extra while doing the LS swap, lockers, gearing, driveshafts, suspension etc and it does make sense since you have it all apart and will be waiting on parts from time to time but it also makes it ten times harder during final shakedown.
I had AFM vibrations, driveline vibrations, exhaust drone and it made it hard to pinpoint stuff. I did get it all figured out but probably a little harder in the long run. I'd probably do it the same way though.
