Ford 300 six in a Jeep CJ??

Has anyone ever tried to put a ford 300 in a jeep CJ? A while back I saw a post listing the dimensions of both and it said the ford engine will bolt right up to the Jeep trans. Can anyone tell me how to find that post? I used search but had no luck!

Ford 300 six in a Jeep CJ??

The six is very long, i'm not sure if it will fit length wise. I believe that the radiator would need to go somewhere else.


Primary rig is Green Thunder:
95' F-150 XLT 4x4, 302, 5 spd, MSD 6A, Flowmaster Exhaust, Sunroof, Clear corners w/ Diamond headlights, CD player with 2 10" subs and some 32" BFG Muds .

Thats it for now, saving for a stang. Check out my Gallery for a look-see.

Ford 300 six in a Jeep CJ??

A few years back, I read about one in a Four Wheeler magazine. It was set-up for rock crawling and would idle along. You could Email the magazine or scan their website. I don't think it was much different size wise than the jeep 4.0L sixes.

Randy, I wrote the reply to that post. the transmission bellhousing on many jeeps has the ford pattern. this is where the tranny bolts to the bellhousing. you can bolt the ford engine with bellhousing attached to some, but not all jeep transmissions. I will either find the post you are looking for or get the info and post it again soon.

Ford 300 six in a Jeep CJ??

I had an 84 Mazda B-2000 pickup that I lifted and prepped to fit a 300. I had to cut out the floor, firewall, move the radiator to the back, put a Toyota straight axle under it,and build a custom bed for it. I had everything ready to go together, and then blew the engine in my F-250. Unfortunatley, the Mazda died a tragic and early death. But, if I had it to do over again, all ridicule aside, that little rice burner would have gotten that 300, and my Ford would have been scrapped.

I have a very rusty 79 F-150 with a great running 300 and I have a 78 Jeep CJ, in very good condition except the blown engine. I plan on building one out of the two.

Ford 300 into CJ Jeep

Hi,

Read with interest the ten year old topic of Randy wanting info on dropping the bigger 6 cylinder Fords (240/300) into CJ's.

I too have one of each (F250 rotted out but still sound mechanically) also a DJ5D with a crook motor. Preliminary measurements say it's a possibility, have to tool around with the engine mounts, lengthwise with the DJ's funny little extension out past the guards should go close. Probably have to drop the fan off and go electric pusher??

Why would I bother? Long story, back in the good old days, Australian assembled Willys/Kaiser/Jeep (before AMC takeover) used 6 cylinder Ford from 144 right up to 250 2V.

As we all get a little older we sometimes regress into adolescence, the more ridiculous the project, the more appealing. A 240 Ford/NP435/ Dana 44 sounds like fun! O.K, bit long, but surely engine/tranny can't be much longer than stock AMC232/727 auto??

Want to keep it simple, so stay 2WD. Postals geared reasonably high, and with no weight of vehicle, should be able to bop along at highway speeds. And yes, I do know and have read comments about taking your life in your hands exceeding 45mph! Hey! Live a little dangerously!

Cheers, Dave 64

The 2.3 Pinto motor is a popular swap into a CJ lol...The early Willys anyways!!

My 55 5 has an injected 2.3 from a 96 Ranger....2x the power and almost half the weight of the original F head 4 popper.

But a 300 swap would make any gas powered vehicle better
