Default v8 swap

I see a lot of wrangler guys swap to the 5.3 litre chevys just wondering if anybody has a write up on what it takes to do the same to a cherokee?

No, no one searches anymore. Heck there was another asking how to swap a manual to a auto, plenty of info already to do it. A better question would have been "found the write up for swapping a auto to manual, is the process the same backwards?"

Yeah that's a very reasonably priced v8 but reading the thread by frank z it looks like he had to use parts from three different transfer cases to make that work. Still very interested in having v8 power but wish it was a little more simple

That's what I'm doing. I was pretty sure that's what forums were for. I'm not asking for somebody to build my jeep for me I'm trying to get all the information I can so I know what I'm up against when the time comes. I didn't think someone helping me find more information would be considered not having the drive I'm still doing all my own research. But thanks for your input
