Hey everyone, I've just started looking and searching around on this forum for the last couple weeks, and figured this might be a good topic for my first post. I am hoping to buy a pop top here in the next month for a winter vehicle (only on really bad days, have a small car for the 40mi commute otherwise), tow rig for my quad trailer and chase vehicle for my sand rail at the sand dunes. I'd also use it for occasional mild offroading with some jeep buddies, and probably take it to the dunes from time to time with my family.
This year it will likely remain mostly as purchased, but eventually I'd like to have an injected 5.7L Hemi. Does anyone know of a successful 5.7L Hemi swap into a pre 1981 4x4 RC? I searched all over the place for an example, and all I can seem to find are 2wd conversions in early 90s rigs. What would be the best as far as transmission and TC? I would like an OD if at all possible. I thought that I read that the 5.7L rams have the t case drop on the wrong side, so I'm guessing that I'd have to go with a A518.
Any thoughts, suggestions, links, info is appreciated... Thanks!
