Not wanting to be a debbie downer but lots of people have thought/talked about things like this. That said, if you are unsure as to whether or not they will work, I think you should step back and do a lot of research and talk to a lot of people. What motor are you dropping in? How is it happening? Any budget concerns? What is your knowledge of mechanics/electronics etc? If a shop is doing it all they should/would be able to help answer these questions but before this thread gets out of hand, the answer is NO. I dont even know what trans/rear is in the WJs but i can guarantee you they will not last at all with 400+ hp thrown at them.

Options as far as upgrades for WJs are limited to my knowledge but with enough money anything s possible. Where theres a will theres a way to an extent of course. I know the WKs have a few options but those are very pricey and time consuming options as far as labor goes. With a project like this look at going without your Jeep for more than a month and some shops will be double/triple that! Again I dont know how serious you are about this or your level of knowledge on it but that is a tall order for a very limited vehicle. Id do a lot of hw before I got into the build.
