I am still a bit new to this forum, but I love my s15 jimmy and I wanted some advise on it. Since gas is probably going to be $7 a gallon by the end of the year I wanted to swap out my 4.3 vortec for a 2.5 or even 2.2 4cyl. My questions are...do I need to re-weld new motor mounts? where can I get a good engine? What does it take to get a 4x4 to a 2wd? would it be better to buy a new truck? I have all the tools, and most (well some) of the know how I was just hoping that someone with experience could give me a few answers.


Thanks in advance,
Luke

You would be better of finding another truck with a 4 banger in it. I would think you could find one cheap enough to keep both trucks. The money you put into a swap could buy you a truck.

if it runs great and all then don't scrap it down for a 2wd 4cyl. Find one with a strong drivetrain that needs other kinds of work... and parts you can swap. Also sell your 4wd drivetrain, but keep it runnin so they can see it first.
