Hello all, I'm looking to do a motor swap on my 2nd gen ex. It's a 4.0 automatic 2WD, wanting to swap to the 5.0 and remaim automatic but gain 4WD too. What all would I need to do to complete this job? Do I need to change the computer? How hard would it be to try and stay as stock as possible? Thinking about wanting manual locking hubs(what I personaly prefer), is this possible?
