Thanks! the new windshield is cheep...and i know the transfer case is bad..I'm going to give Gary's a call tomorrow..i am going to cross my fingers with the transmission....no reverse....I am hoping that it is just something with the shifter....It wants to go into reverse...but just not quite enough to stay engaged. But... with my luck I will need a trans..The jeep itself will make it to my shop tomorrow morning so i can get a closer look...but hey...for $500 I really wont whine that much.:dontknow:

Make sure u get a ax-15 if it's a 4.0L or if it's a 4cyl,an ax5, stay away from anything Peugeot when it comes to transmissions, they r fuckin junk

Lol...I am waiting for the jeep club to "approve" my account....LOL.....I guess I''m not trannie enough...I do have the AX15 and i think that i am going to tear it down myself...it is only reverse that is missing but 5th is there...my research tells me that they share a fork...hopefully it is just bent ...but time will tell
The re build starts this weekend

Well so far the score is Jeep Tj = 1 Bank account -1

the carnage so far is : good used ax15
good used n231
all new brakes front to back
new u-joints front axle
needing Dana 35 (3.07) in useable condition


So far so good...at this rate the damn thing will be rebuilt by Sept. lol

and i need new 35" tires for 15" rims..........and the band played on[cheers]

I am going to at some point...(likely sooner rather than later) but for now just need something to get it mobile. What is the 8.8 swap like...do you have to weld new perches,mounts etc? or...I would certainly appreciate the tech info if someone has done this swap which likely a lot of you have.:dontknow:
