Re: The big strip has begun!

Awesome plan, should be fun and challenging project but certainly one that can be done!

Any reason you chose a Grand Cherokee to swap into that truck body versus a sports car or something more hot rod-ish per say? Not saying this is a bad choice or won t work, but if your looking to use the truck for it designed functionality you should certainly have an awesome vehicle! Ill be watching this as well

If not, it may be something to keep in mind if you have any unusual problems once the project is complete.

On that, are you hoping to use the original ECU etc or are you installing an aftermarket stand alone? My thinking would suggest the latter a much easier to work solution.
Just checked and nothing like that on the yaw sensor. Hoping it will be alright seeing the impact was not enough to set any of the airbags off.
Will be using the whole loom and ECU from the Grand so all will plug back together. Will just remove things like the whole airbag circuit, rear doors etc from it.

I wanted to keep it in the 'family' of the Willys and not just stick a Chev in it like everyone else. Wanted to go the full donor route that was new enough not to need a rebuild as that adds a lot to the overall cost. Also wanted a V8 so the only things we have here in the Chrysler family is this or the 300C which was my first choice. Looked for one for a couple of years but wreaked they were still going for about 80% more than the Grand with far more mileage.

Ok cool

Just be aware, often you can't just "remove" sections, everything in these bloody things talks to everything else.

Vehicles these days are just too bloody "smart" for their own good!

For instance, if it doesn't "see" airbags, it may go into limp mode, that kinda shit.

I know you're a smart fella, just keep your eyes open I guess

Superb high end quality completely tunable stand alone computers such as Motec and Autronic really aren't that expensive these days, and could run everything you need easily, and give you endless tuning solutions.
Having something like that doesn't mean you can't have all the Jeep factory niceities in the Willy's, but my bet is it will be a lot easier to make run, with the benefit of having a really highly tunable package.

^x2 everything that was removed has to be reinstalled or your dash will light up like a christmas tree with warning lights or worse.

Re: The big strip has begun!

This thread is BAD ASS! *followed*

As for these thing being too smart for their own good... I wonder f there is an aftermarket stand alone ecu available for he WK's. I used one in a go fast turbo si back in the day. Total ass saver becaus it let me clear all the bogus headaches you typically get when you start tinkering with complicated and or vital systems. It allowed me to do everything from air fuel ratio, idle rpms, max rpms, when variable valve timing kicked int (Hondas "VTEC" system) and all sorts of other stuff. See if thre is anything out there.
