no clue. what would it be going in? only things that come to my mind is if coil-spring, upgrade to a 4.0L truck's coil springs. There's not much to it. Of course, we're working off having no info from you. Weight wise? idk....I'd guess around 600lbs or so....but idk. I just swapped my engine but have no way to measure the old one for ya.

yeah i figured that much dont get me wrong i understand there will have too be many severe mods too the vehicle to support this motor not just suspention and tranny but i doubt the stock frame will even be very acommidating too the 250-300 hp and pax possible of 700 ft/lb of torque
