Would a 6.1 hemi swap right over to a 07 Jeep srt8?
The oil pan, oil pickup tube as the LX cars are a front sump (short tube), and the jeeps are a rear sump (long tube), and the filter housing would need to be changed over. The stock exhaust manifolds are also different. The LX had more room in the cradle compared to the jeep, so the manifolds you’ll need for a jeep are more condensed for packing space reasons.
