    Jeep cj5 trade for big block Chevy ?

    I've got a 77 cj5 that I flipped over the day after Christmas. It made me lose interest in it. It runs and drives ok. Got a newer 4.0 six in it. The windshield is cracked and its in fairly rough shape but it has like new Mickey Thompson 31's on it. Motor in my boat knocking and I'm much more interested in fixing it than 4 wheeling ! I can't get pictures to post but if interested send me pm and I'll shoot over Picts. I'm in Kansas City area. $2500 outright sale

    Long block or short block? I am presuming 454 chev? Find a local driver to deliver both ways and we might make a deal. Give me details on what you need on motor, they are easy to find here.

    Prefer long block, would be ok with any displacement. But bigger is better of course. I have been thru a couple of car motors in the last few years and would really like actual marine engine to put in it. I am not exactly sure best way to get it there.

    The only thing different to do with a truck motor vs. marine motor is tell the machine shop. They know the clearance needed for a colder running block. Pistons heat up block doesn't is the only difference. Couple mics difference in bore is all.
