We're swapping motors (to an LSX 454), and as such now have a spare JK 3.8 engine and trans and RIPP supercharger kit out of my Jeep to sell.
#1 -- Motor/trans has ~27,000 miles on it. Oil changed religiously every 3,000 miles. Motor is in great condition (as one would expect for such low mileage). Comes with everything you need to replace your motor/trans. Unsure about going from automatic to manual if that's your thing.
#2 -- RIPP 3.8 kit has ~8,000 miles on it. See https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=296945
for more details.
I'm in Phoenix, prefer local but will ship on buyer dime. Cash or PayPal (+3%).
Buying options are as follows:
#1 -- Motor only, $2000
#2 -- Motor + Trans, $2700
#3 -- Motor + RIPP, $5700
#4 -- Motor + RIPP + Trans, $6400
#5 -- RIPP, $3700
I have LTL freight quotes to ship all the way to Boston, which comes out to roughly $300. RIPP would be $100 to ship. If we shipped both together it would all fit in a single crate, so still $300 total for both.
We can swap either setup into your Jeep for an additional $50 per hour. It should end up between 20 and 30 hours depending on which option you go with. Dealer wants $140 per hour + tax and quotes similar time frame. Probably would give slightly better deal if you're buying both RIPP + Motor.
