Why don't you do the harness yourself? I did my own for my 5.3L and it really wasn't that hard. This guy tells you everything you need to know. Took me a Saturday to do it and it sounds like you're waiting around for motor mounts anyway. If you feel you need to send your harness away I had a buddy that sent his harness in and was happy with Branden's work (lt1swap). Last I checked he was deleting VATS and O2's or whatever else you wanted for 75 bucks including return shipping. If that's all you need it's a cheap way to go.

Ill check into it, however cheap is fine as long as it's right. I'm not concerned about a few extra $$$ to have piece of mind.

I'm not doing the build myself, wish I had the know how, but I don't. I have faith that he will check into all options and it will come out a force to be reckoned with. Thanks for the link!

The wiring (or any of the rest for that matter) really isn't that bad guys, just a matter of following directions. It's been done lots of times and people have documented it on every Jeep forum out there. Better than basic skills are all that's necessary, you don't have to be a pro.

Maybe I should start putting LS motors in Jeeps for other people, THAT would be a fun part-time jig.

You will love the LS in your Jeep when it's done. I don't remember seeing it here, what are the axles going to be?

Axles are already there. 60's front and rear. 5:13 gears ..ARB's. 35 spline front, rear is 30, will be changed at some point down the road. Polyperformance flanges. Just a drive train build for now.

Novak makes everything so easy now it's not even fair

I was pretty fussy about the way I wanted mine to sound. I ended using some Hooker block huggers (very similar to the Novaks now available), then went into a single 3" universal cat and Hushpower Pro series muffler with a full tailpipe. I am really happy with how it turned out. Here's a couple clips from the dunes where you can hear it.

Too loud for me. I like to be able to talk while I'm cruising.
