Ok, I have an 89 YJ 4.2 that is mostly stock other than a shackle lift and a recent upgrade to an AX-15 trans.
I've been reading thru the various forums about SOA, 350 swaps, Axle swaps, thank you all by the way
trying to make a decision on what to do.
First thoughts are to do just a SOA with the current setup but also thinking about swapping it all out ,motor,trans,t case, axles... with a donor vehicle that I have its a 1979 Blazer with a running 350 and a 350 or 400 turbo trans, not sure on the transfer case or the axles but what do you think, pros and cons?
I know the axle width would be greater but not the biggest problem I can think of.
1, Will the motor and auto trans and T case fit so that a drive shaft will function properly.
2, Transfer case is on the opposite side, will it work without a ton of fabbing.
3, Will a 350 Chevy mate to an AX-15, if it does with an adapter, is it strong enough? (If this will work than it would be the way to go I think)
Or leave it alone and just stick with the SOA and stock axles and motor...
Thanks in advance.
