    RRC Front Clip Removal for powertrain swap

    With winter fast approaching I am preparing for my next major RRC project. I will be pulling the engine/transmission/Xfer case and replacing them with a Gen IV 5.3 V8, 6 speed auto and LT230. Question is, how hard is it to pull the entire front clip from the firewall forward? I found many references to pulling the fender skins but nothing on pulling the entire clip.

    The last vehicle I did a similar swap on was a 1986 Jeep Grand Wagonner where it was a matter of unbolting the fenders from the firewall, removing the bolts from the frame mounts and the whole front clip came off in one piece. This made the powertrain swap a snap.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I'm pretty sure the front clip is part of the main body structure. I'm not saying it couldn't be separated, but not designed to be removable.
