Post by Jesse Grass »

This defiantly is open to creative fabrication! needs custom cross members to the T case severe firewall modification even with 3" body lift, a Turbo Action Cheetah SCS Shifter is best seeing as you have a cable and not direct linkage to worry about, or on my bronco 2 where I used a B&M ratchet shifter, depending on what type of T case you run with possibly an advanced adapter for the T case so you can retain you're stock drive shaft length and proper engine position in relation to the core support or possibly finding a happy medium with the new t case and custom engine mounts, possibly swapping the flanges on the t case to make the drive shafts work custom made headers to clear the rag joint and steering box, I would get a new overflow tank for coolant, aftermarket radiator, I would also take the time if you're doing that swap and run some true h pipe duals and o yeah a lot of exhaust fabrication!!! I will take some pictures of the underneath when the weather get's better to show you some clearances you run into with just a 302, 351w also has a wider engine in both deck with and over all block width.
