The transmission in question is an AW4 4-sp automatic. I also kept the NP242 selec-trac transfer case from the '88 Cherokee XJ.

I don't have much to report this week as that I have been struggling with free time this summer. When I do get time it is usually hotter than heck.

I managed to track down some wires that were needed, but found out that they were broken. I had to remove the transfer case shifter bracket in order to access the grommet where the solenoid wires entered the transmission case.

Here are the broken wires of the upper harness assy.
jeep-progress-7-25-2010-006.jpg

I had to splice these wires together using solder and heat shrink tubing. I ran another bigger tubing to cover the splices, then I ran the split loom to further protect it.

I still have to attach the harness assy. to prevent them from shifting around when in motion or laden down with mud. Then I will be onto cross referencing the wire codes to make the '88 harness compatable with the '93 harness.


The UPS man dropped off my package yesterday of front turn signal housings and one headlight bezel. I should be seeing the other bezel later this week, hopefully.

I have had some time to work on my Jeep last weekend. I picked up a pair of bucket seats from a yard sale, asking price was $100.00 for the pair. I went back at 2:00 p.m. and bought them for $60.00. It was the Score of the day!
jeep-progress-08-16-2010-001.jpg


Here is the passenger seat with the fabbed feet. I have the feeling that these did not work out for his project very well. (1974 Camaro).
jeep-progress-08-16-2010-006.jpg


I cut and ground off the feet and drilled out the mounting holes a little larger. Fortunately, the track width was close enough to work with!
jeep-progress-08-16-2010-011.jpg


I now have the drivers seat installed. I can release the seat and push it forward with plenty of room to allow a back seat passenger, even for me!

Here is the passenger seat is released forward, still plenty of room for access to the back seat.

Both seats are mounted in place. They both look like that they belong there.
jeep-progress-08-16-2010-025.jpg


Both seats can fully recline to their maximum position. They just barely hit the rear wheel wells.
jeep-progress-08-16-2010-026.jpg


Unfortunately, I do not know what make the seats are. I was fortunate to find a set of decent seats at a good price. Once I find out wha tmake they are, I will submit an entry into the sticky for seats.

With any hope, I will be working on integrating the TCU into the engine harness. Once that is done, all I have left to get the Jeep running will be the little stuff.

I must've been sleep walking again.

Thank you for identifying the seats for me. They are a nice set of seats.

I can't wait either. My main goal is to just get it to run, then I will get into performing a lift and other goodies for it.

I spent some time on it last night (pics coming soon), I figured where I wanted to mount the TCU (Transmission Control Unit), I roughly routed the wires where they needed to be. My next step is to integrate all the wiring of the TCU, Gear Slelector/NSS and the solenoid harness into the YJ/XJ engine harness. When this project is complete, I will have a wiring diagram for future use made up, not only for others here but also for my own reference, just in case something happens.

I managed to get some wiring done this past week. It seemed daunting at first, until I segregated the components and wires.

This week, I installed the TCU for the AW4 under the dash. There isn't much room to put one of these things, so it has been placed here for the meantime. Eventually, I will relocate it to where the Jeep PCM use to sit.
jeep-progress-8-26-2010-004.jpg


The TCM wires are identified and labeled as to where they go.
jeep-progress-8-26-2010-006.jpg


The connectrors and wires have been identified and ran accordingly. They belong to the Gear Selector/NSS switch and the AW4 Solenoid packs.

With any luck, this phase will be tidied and taped up by the end of the weekend. I should be able to start on the cooling system by then.

Yeah, I knew what I was getting myself into when I started, er inherited this project. Wait until later when I post the "after" pics. You wouldn't recognize that it was the same Jeep.

Yeah, I plan on at least painting the fender and the hood to match the rest of the Jeep. I haven't decided on a new color as of yet.

I made a huge dent in my wiring over the last weekend. I finally feel like that I had made some accomplishments!

Remember that huge mess of wires? Here is a reminder pic of it.
jeep-progress-8-29-2010-001.jpg


I had initially mounted the TCM under the dash at the steering column, but decided that the original PCM mount behind the glovebox was a better place to put it.
jeep-progress-8-29-2010-007.jpg


My wire splicing included crimping and soldering, then heat shrink wrapped.
jeep-progress-8-29-2010-009.jpg


After I determined where they needed to go, I straightened the wires and taped them at about six inch (or closer) intervals.
jeep-progress-8-29-2010-017.jpg


After I decided what wires needed to go where, I made the first full wrap with electrical tape.
