Another new guy!

Hello, I'm a long time CJ7 owner and recently purchased a nice 2010 JKU Rubicon to play with. I have added Smittybilt XRC Gen 3 bumpers and rear tire carrier, 2.5" Rubicon Express lift and procomp 18" wheels with Maxxis Bighorn 35" tires. This is going to be my daily driver for a bit, she has 185,000 miles on the original 3.8 but still uses very little oil and actually runs pretty well. In the not to distant future this Jeep will get an LS swap to moderize it a bit.
Anyway, happy to be here.

Welcome to JKO!

Will you be doing the LS swap yourself or send it out? Make sure you start a build thread on it either way so we can follow along.

I'll be doing it myself. I think my plan is to swap in a Gen 4 5.3 and 6l80 trans but that could change a bit. This will be my second swap, my first was a 1986 Jeep J-10 pickup , I replaced the tired 360 with a 2003 5.3 and 4l60e from a GMC Yukon. It made a completely new vehicle out of it, fun to drive, great power and quick starts. I won't criticise the 3.8 that's in my JK now, but it I have no doubt it will be a much nicer ride with an LS in it.

Well make sure you document your progress for us. We love pictures and LS swaps, especially pictures of LS swaps. I would love to do a gen V L86 swap in mine, but I also want to build a 98-02 firebird drag racing car.
