Not sure what the cca rating is but i'll find out and get back to youyou....the liberty doesnt have a grid heater..only a block heater and glow plugs.A bit off subject, but what battery specs are suggested for the VM 2.8 ie CCA? Is it grid heated? Do you have a block heater for it?
Wow, look at the clearance on that oil pan. Or is that an optical illusion? You know, we require video (not Pic's) when you fire this thing up and when you drop it in gear for the first time? @Chris will delete any pic's of that scenario!Engine went in with no clearance problems of any kind....glad to have it finally in place. A student also fabricated and installed a bracket to hole the electronic gas pedal....Next step will be to install the skid plate and transmission mount.

Will be more than happy to provide video of the maiden fire up and yest drive...I'll do you one better...come to sault ste marie and i will let you test it yourself!
The Liberty cluster will actually fit in the TJ with a little modifying....if you look at page 4 or 5 of this thread you'll see a photo of a Liberty cluster in a TJ.....I have to say, this is going to end up being one hell of a cool Wrangler. I can't wait to hear how it runs and drive.
You said you're using the Liberty gauge cluster right? How are you going to fit that in the dash without looking odd?
