2008 Jeep Commander (going to be listed), 1979 Jeep Cherokee (sale pending), and soon a 1984 F250
Hey y'all! I'm new here, but joined to ask a few questions about the viability of a Detroit swap into an older Ford. I'm looking at a 3-53 mated to an Eaton 6-speed, and have a few questions about the viability of the swap. How much fab-work would something like this take? Would I be able to do it for under five grand? Would I be able to keep four wheel drive AND make around 20 MPG? Or would the 4WD have to go? I understand that this is going to be a work intensive swap, and it's still up in the air as to whether or not I would even do this, but in case I do I would say its best to ask questions first.
