Let the SUPERSIZING Begin : Timelapse Video of an LS Motor Getting Installed in a Jeep JK Wrangler
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
After more than 6 years of pushing Moby, our big white 2007 Jeep JK
Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited around with a wimpy 3.8L V6 motor, it was high
time to SUPERSIZE things. In other words, it was time for a V8!! But,
rather than install a HEMI, we decided to do an LS swap or specifically, a
GM 6.2L L94 V8 attached to a 6L80 automatic transmission. All this would be
going in at Off Road Evolution using a MoTech LS kit and, in this short
time lapse video, you'll get a taste of what's involved in a project like
this. A more complete video will be produced once everything is done. I
hope you enjoy.
