Another V8 Swap Thread

I have a '98 auto that I am going to do a GM V8/manual trans swap to and need some input.

My big concern is budget and transmission options. I know I can swap to an AX-15 or NV3550 without issues but I found a few Silverado 1500's with the 4.8, NV3500 and NP241 for pretty cheap. Is the Silverado drivetrain a viable option since all of these components are supposedly very similar to the OEM XJ drivetrain?

Re: Another V8 Swap Thread

the silverado powertrain is stronger than XJs. the 241 is stronger than jeep's 231 and the nv3500 is stronger than ax15. I would swap the whole powertrain.
