I agree with the auto. I've run both auto and stick & prefer the auto.

i know 2 guys with 5.0s in their YJ's and they are bad ass.. good choice of engine; not the typical 350 you see in most jeeps with not-stock motors.

Just an fyi... Im the one who talked him into the 5.0 swap into his jeep.. I have a wicked efi 5.0 in my 79 Bronco and she runs like a rape ape... In a week or so his tj should be running and driving.. I talked to a friend today about helping with the efi harness and he's down to help... This will be a sick lil tj when it's done.. The motor is stock for now but wont be for long after this season of wheelin, she'll have a few more pony's under the hood..

How much horizontal seperation do you have on those rear links? It doesnt look like enough to keep the axle centered without blowing out the bushings and putting really high loads on the links.

unless there is a lot more done than it shows in the pictures theres a lot more than a weeks worth of work left from my experiences...

the rear wouldn't be too bad if you triangulate the uppers, but the front needs to be stretched out or move the mount back in my web wheeling opinion

A year ago, I would have disagreed with that. Now, I'm thinking auto for the win- it seems like the stock Jeep 32RH trans "starves" for fluid at extreme angles- I've noticed that riding with xjeeper. If I can find a fix for that, I'm swapping out my NV3550 for a Auto.
