I think I scraped the splines a little during the removal. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture.

How to pull a seized Hemi?

So I finally got the reman engine installed and running. Ended up with almost all the sensors replaced, new catalytic converters, new throttle body, new dorman intake, new radiator, new starter, new water pump, new battery, new headlights, new fog lights, 2 Rough Country lift, 1.25 ECCP spacers, Pirelli Scorpion AT+ 265/70R17 tires and a TrIl Dash 2.
Next up is service the entire drive train with AMSOIL products that just arrived today. Also changed the RH front half shaft and need to change that wheel speed sensor as well.
The nag radio is blank but does turn on. Stuck on AM with only what is in the preselects as station options. I think Im going Pioneer MVH1400 NEX with the Idatalink as a replacement.
Ill basically have a better than new Commander at that point! I have to total it up again but Im at about $7,000 at this point.

Congrats on getting her all back together & running again @Sevenjays , that sounds like it was a monumental task;

But, you essentially have a brand new SUV for $7,000; How can you beat that??

Thanks for sharing the information - and the pics.

They are a pain, but with the intake off you can get to them. A stubby gear wrench helps a lot. I also had the hood off and pulled the wiring harness up as much as I could.

I don't think I could have reached the top ones from below. The drivers side center bolt took a couple of extensions with a universal in the middle and a swival socket. Did that from below.

I got faster after a few times!

Your Commander looks great! I will be attempting something very much like this with a 3.7 replacement.

Any advice?
