Does Anyone Have A Shop???

Does anyone here have a shop or know anyone that has a shop I could possibly use hopefully this weekend??? I need to swap out the motor in my car (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee) and have no where to do it My main problem is we obviously need a lift and cherry picker

The only vehicle I have at the moment is my bike and I realllllly need my car back for obvious reasons.

Any help or insight would be great. Thank you in advance for your time.

Reading FTW!

I just got done making space in my garage to work on bikes, but not enough space for a Jeep. My other garage has plenty of space, and an engine lift, but that's in Michigan..... Good luck! +1 on the factory service manual, if you don't have one already go to Auto Zone and pick one up.

And you are referring to a bunch of guys that do engine swaps for a living big difference

If i am not mistaken its a 6 and it hydrolocked

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I think it's the other way around. All older Jeeps are 4WD, new jeeps may have the option. IDK though as I grew up with a '72 CJ-5, '84 CJ-7, and an '85 CJ-8 Scrambler, all of which were not only true Jeeps, but were all 4WD.
Not that I'm hating on newer Jeeps, but I notice they don't do the Jeep wave anymore.

I had a 98 wrangler from 98 to 2002ish. they still did the jeep wave.

Hell, I was driving a customer's C6 vette the other day and I got a vette wave from another driver. I didn't know anyone did it besides motorcyclists and jeep owners.

see the thread on the collapse of society posted earlier today as to why there may no longer be a jeep wave

and any of the full size jeeps are 4wd (full or part time) but the baby jeeps, compass, patriot, can be had in 2wd versions.

As far as the 2wd/4wd Part i have a 04 jeep and I have the option for 2wd 4 part time 4 full time or 4 low

Ask me what each one is for i couldnt tell you as this is the first time ever owning a jeep let alone dealing with those options

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

it having 4wd adds a good deal more work to a motor swap. as theres a significantly larger amount of metal to run the 4wd vs a simple rwd trans alone


gonna be interesting

I don' t know much details about an engine swap but I understand the basics. Depending on when this happens let me know as I'd love to swing by, help out however I can, and just learn everything I can.

Back to the shop idea

what Do you think of a Co-oprative type of shop with storage and an expert there to help .Could something like this work?

Gus
We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.
