it cant be that hard...the trick would be, if you could utililize the Rubicons trans, and gears and stuff, then you got big bore power, and some mega low end. I bet it would be to hard to fit it all int he Rubicon frame.
That would be like a pinto with a big block in it I wonder if you could take the jug and complete top end form a rincon and adapt it to the rubicon low end. That way from the tranny for the rubicon would remain. But I don't know if the two halfs would mate.
We've had the motors out of both .. (mostly Rubicons for transmissions)
The Rincon engine may very well fit in a Rubicon frame.. The Rubicon engine is a very big engine with the oil tank still on the engine..
You may want to check HL for the answer to that...I know someone was going to attempt it a while back...They said that they would have to bore the case out to make the crank and jug work...Seemed like it might work to me..just take some time and money...I also think I heard that honda didn't use the 5 speed auto because it couldn't handle the power of the big bore...Just stuff I have heard.
