    I have not seen anything like this, but I'm not the expert on this issue. AEV just released a kit for the Hemi, but as far as mounting a GM engine with the Jeep tranmission--I don't think your going to find that anywhere. Plus, I don't think the stock Jeep transmission would be able to handle the power out of that motor. Supercharged LS2, your probably well over 500hp. There are a couple of sponsors on this forum that may be able to give you some advice. I'd say that cop4x4 and screamin lizard would be your best chance as they do a lot of highly custom Jeeps.

    I'd love to see an LS7 in a JK

    Cheers Khalid!

    If not the joke comes to an abbreviated end when you drop the clutch from about 2500 rpm.

    Tom from PSC and I talked about doing a LS motor swap, the PCM is the only issue. It may happen in the future though.

    It wouldn't be 50-state legal would it?...not sure if he even wants it to be trail only...but I think some states require the engine to be by the same manufacturer as the vehicle it's going into...I may be wrong but that would give good reason for the HEMI

    It would be an interesting swap to say the least. My son and I are fixing to put an LS3 and six speed into an 88 short bed S-10.

    Awesome thought... There are some really awesome JK's there to.

    ps. No laws relate to matching manufacturers, engine, body etc. You are allowed to modify as you wish, with very few limits. One of the reasons we can mod our Jeeps, but the factory can not ( at least is very limited in what they can offer). The factory's limitations are not ours. (thank a tree hugger for these kind of laws/restrictions)
