Picked up a new to me 89 XJ limited (no abs / no hydraulic assist
My wifes current XJ is a 92 2wd sport. 216k
Due to the back tags from 2005 (two owners back, first guy traded it to the other for yard/garage clean up. been sitting on property in the foot hills), my plan is to take the doors with power windows, and door locks, and the drive train past the transmission, from axle to axle, as well as the front power seats.
As a side project, I'm thinking about taking the block from the 89 to start making a stroker motor with...
Mainly just want the 4wd. That should be straight forward.
For the power equipment, I'm going to need some schematics, but will not be surprised if I have to run wires, and I can reproduce the factory set up (relays and fuses) if the 92 is not pre-wired for the power options.
Also thought about making a hybrid leaf spring, out of the two sets, and then coil spacers for the front. IDK, if I have to get longer shocks, I may just wait until tax return time and get the 3.5 lift with the new rear leafs.
Id like to hear for you all about this. Im a cheap **** and will be slow going when it comes to BUYING anything. I should have the power seats out soon. I feel this will be the easiest of all the swap work lol
