Here's my project.. a 87 yj, converting to 4.0 ho. Not sure if it will end up with a 42rh or a aw4. May end up on 78 power wagon d44/d60 4.10s if it's the right price. I'm going to try to get it up and running with the stock suspension for the eighth of October so I can take my sister off road. At least my winch is cradled and only need to add a receiver tube to mount it, as well as electrical connectors. Reason for ditching the 4.2 is for fuel injection. I lack there patience to deal with a carb. Yes i can get them set up but you still have vapor lock issues and hot restart problems. Ethanol didn't improve any existing carb issues either. Plus it leaks oil and trans fluid like a sieve. Keeping hard top, intending to add cruise, overhead console with information center out of zj, xzj front suspension, maybe zj rear or xj, hadn't decided. Estimated lift is 5.5" over stock with the coil conversion. Was thinking xj-esque front coil, rear leaf might be a good compromise. Drove a jk with mostly stock arms and 6" lift and 35's, I'll keep my xj and zj at 3" or less, the loss of ride quality isn't worth it in my opinion. . My vehicles see mostly street and this yj will be entered in a drive to maine cheap car contest(requirements: <700 vehicle, <700 repairs, and roll there and back, first one to complete wins, second and third place too. Prizes TBD. Produced by brave (or stupid) my choice parts house employees and local mechanics. At minimum, trophies, max might be entry fee pool to first place and trophy's or gift cards. Open to anyone who wants to enter, labor not included on cost of repairs, since most of us turn our own wrenches. Date is TBD but will be sometime next year.. maybe that deserves its own thread... My Jeep will roll with a basically complete service kit and will be willing to help others with issues on the trip.. doing mobile service has its benefits of knowing what you can do with a limited tool set without having a shop to work in. ) Pm or if there is enough interest I'll start a thread for the Maine adventure. Me and the wife were thinking it'd be awesome to take and drop our kids at my parents in Mass and take a few days and then head back down. I'm almost certain my wrangler will be probably the most vetted vehicle in the trip considering I'm only into it for $1200 including Jeep and donor vehicles. I don't care that the donor motor and trans had 210k, they didn't smoke knock or shift sloppy. That counts more to me than what a number counting ticker does. To anyone interested in entering the Maine and back adventure can pm me and can fill to in, perhaps get a thread going for it.
