06 wk build: Project sasquatch
Hello Jeep enthusiasts, I'm 19 and currently own a beautiful inferno red 3.7l AWD 06 WK with 187000 miles a 2 inch spacer lift, bigger tires, ridged industries off road lights & somemore. (would post pictures but can't seem to figure out how). This is going to be my first BUILD I have ideas but need some help. I plan on doing some major modifications to it. First things first it does have 187000 miles on it so I'm thinkin a tranny&engine swap (maybe a 4.7 or a 5.7? Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Has to be compatible with a snorkel though) After that then it's time for a real lift kit. I was looking at superlift (seems to be the only suspension kit for the WK besides the JBA ones) but they are pretty expensive. Any other good suggestions?
Could I get a TJ lift and make some modifications? And also what else would I have to replace if let's say I bought the 6 in JBA Lift? As said before I plan on getting a snorkel air intake, also I'm going to extend the breather tubes, and waterproof electronics. But won't I need new electronics for a different engine? I can waterproof before I put them in. I'm going to be fabricating my own skid plate and brush guard. Then probably put some 32's or bigger (depending on the lift). I plan on getting tranny&engine out of a Running salvage jeep. Ill have compression test done. Will I have to swap axles and everything else too? That's the start I will post pictures when I find out how.
Thanks for all feedback
