  1. Hi i was just wondering if anyone new how hard it is to put the 3.9L Cummins 4BT Turbo Diesel in a jk or is the engine to heavy for the car?

  2. Great writeup and visuals. I’ve heard there is something to do with the locker switch when doing a JK Rubicon, but can’t find it in my searches (so far), perhaps a comment on that? Thanks!

  3. not sure if it’s different but on my 2007 Rubicon its a 35 millimeter socket for the hub nut and a 5 millimeter hex for the speed sensor as for everything elseseems to be perfect to me
