jeep and w250 combo ideas

ive been staring at the wag and this 92 w250 parked next to each other and have been thinking about putting the drivetrain into the wag. efi 318 and overdrive sounds more attractive then 360 carbed fuel slurper.....thoughts?

With skill, time and money anything can be stuffed into anything. Do your homework, sharpen your pencil, do the math, figure payback date/miles, decide if it's worth it to you. Just cause it's doable don't mean it's a good idea. 318's though good motors aren't exactly famous for power. Apparently you want a mega cushy 4x4 station wagon with Honda gas mileage. That plan has economically sunk many new FSJ owners who bought the wrong car. EFI and OD isn't a magic path to gas mileage. In any case you're still shoving a 4500 lb barn through the air. It's gonna take fuel.
Good luck.

not really concerned with the mpg part of it just the idea of matched efi and trans appeals to me. its already spring over and flipped in rear and hasnt been back on the road since, not quite done with that yet.so i was kinda debating on the entire drivetrain swap including the 8 lugs so i could use my h1 wheels after doin the steering knuckle mods needed for them altough id have to regear them. the waggy axles have 3 91s in them so i can get away with leaving them alone with the 727 and 360....... argh

I have a cummins 12v 92 w250 front and rear diff in my waggy. It's a d60f and d70 rear with he stock 3.55 gears. I converted the rear to disc brakes. Mine moves it's self along just fine even with the 3.55's and my stock 360/727 set up turning a set of 37"s. Since your w250 is a gasser it should have 4.10s in the d60f and d60 rear. I'm pretty sure the gasser's were not D70 like the diesels that my drivetrain came out of. Regardless it's a way stronger set up then the stock d44's. The spring perch spacing is a direct fit to the waggy. Biggest issue you might have is depending what year your wag is you might have a drivers side diff where the dodge has a passenger side diff but if your swapping the engine, trans, and transfer case that won't be an issue. Of course you will need to do a crossover streeing set up but that's pretty easy.

Yes, the rear matches too. I have a RSF done on mine and the rear hangers are moved back to accommodate the 64" rear springs but the spring perch spacing is the same as the d44 the waggy came with.

For rear springs I used a stock set of 64" GM rear springs off of a 88-98 1/2 ton pick up. Your stock springs will work fine for the swap too. Not sure about the rear w250 springs but i would have to guess they are pretty stiff in comparison to the waggy rear springs. I went with the 64"s so I would have more flex off road and it allowed me to stretch my wheel base by about 6"s.
