    Default Engine swap

    I am looking at doing an engine swap have done a ton of reading on here.

    I am going to be over landing with my m725. I know i am never going to get great gas mileage but looking for decent mileage. Also looking to get rid of transfer case while doing the swap.

    Engines I've been looking at
    4.0 Jeep motor of another inline 6 motor
    Stock 350

    I do not want to go diesel would love too but unless someone sponsors me it's not in the budget.
    Open to other engine options and opinions

    By getting rid of the transfer case are you planning 2 wheel drive or just wanting a more road friendly married transfer case?

    I deleted your other two threads.

    Automatic or manual? Stock axles or upgrade?

    I ask because most everything made since 1992 is driver side drop married transfer case orientation. One trick several have done is a Ford 300 straight 6 with the Ford 5 speed and married transfer case. Then put a set of Ford Super Duty axles under the truck.

    That was my thought as well 17 years ago. Engine and transmission then the rest. I did a Big Block Chevy 396 and NV4500. I liked it so much I never got to the other stuff. Then I did a 6.2 diesel for the Gasser in 2013. I have left it like that for 8 years now. It serves my needs and does what I want.
