Engine swap?

Is there any possible way to swap my 3.7 Liter engine without ****ing anything up or having to replace any of the electrical systems? To replace anything at all besides the engine would be a complete waste of time and money.

Re: Engine swap?

Most will tell you that it would be easier to take the thousands it will cost to swap engines and use itoaks trade up to a 5.7L limited or Overland.

Re: Engine swap?

Off the top of my head you would need a new ecu, unknown amount of wiring and labor, a transmission, all the mounting hardware, ect ect. So to answer your question, no its not just a swap, it requires alot of stuff. Like jet said, just trade in for a dif model before you even think about the swap.
