Welcome to JeepGarage!


Oh its possible but you will, no joke be spending around 15-20k with parts (need a lot more parts than just the engine) and installation.

Welcome Matt!


Yeah bro....if ya want a 5.7...take your truck back and trade it for one....it would be a total nightmare unless you are a pro or have connections with Burnsville Offroad or someone like that

Re: new to jeep garage

you can do somethings to the 3.7. We are hoping bwoody performance will develop a true CAI for the 3.7/4.7 Be on the lookout for it. You may also want to look at one of our vendors. airram.com sells a powerwire that the 3.7 guys like a lot and noticed some gain.

So get comfortable and ask any questions you may have. No question is a dumb question if you dont know the answer!
