I got bored the other day so I trolled craigslist for an engine stand. About 5 hours later and this is what I came up with. Finally got my bored over 3.7 put together. I borrowed an engine lift from my neighbor so tomorrow morning I'm going to attempt to do the swap. The trans is already out so it should go alittle quicker.

Bored .02 over. Rock auto offers stock replacement and .02 pistons for the 3.7.

The trans is at the shop and my truck is too far up on my concrete pad.

Depends. The head wasn't an 07 so I have to drill it for the sensor tomorrow. I'm hoping to have in installed tomorrow but don't know if it'll happen.

Looks like that old motor serviced you well out in the mud pits

Honestly jealous that you can be working outside this time of year. Was wiring some things earlier and it was 0* outside. Warmest it has been all week.
0???? Holy hell, how does anyone live in that? It was 57 today and I thought that was cold.

Yea it was pretty reliable. I never even had the head replaced. Probably needed to. Never had any problems out of it tho.

Almost got it all together. Got a few more things left and it'll be time to see if she'll fire and run.

Only thing I did was get new sensors. The cam gears look identical to what was in my 06 head all but the sensor. She runs. Fired right up. I got it idling for a little bit. Ima change the oil in it and put my trans and tcase back in.
