nothing wrong with the early wranglers, the 4.2 is a great motor, especially if you like to modify. even the puggy trans lasts way longer than people think.
my question is about you, do you really want to take on a major project like this? do you have the skills or are willing to learn?
the jeep is a complete unknown. it may be as simple as flushing the carb and fuel system or it may need a complete rebuild.
the transfercase was disconnected for a reason, was it to replace u joints, replace clutch or is the tranny blown? there are people here that haven't driven their jeep for a year or two while doing a rebuild, are you up to it?
Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.
the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.
