A 2 wheel drive transmission won't work. You will need a transmission too.

So yea, the good thing is, there are many different transmissions you can put behind that 4.0, and a lot of ways to go about this. This will no doubt be a good learning experience, and by noting what you have already purchased, you are jumping right in head first. Should be a fun project. Keep posted here as you go along if you can. Will make for an interesting thread to follow, and keep tabs with.
