my TF999 took a **** on me recently, i couldnt find another one and it was looking expensive to rebuild that one. my logic was the AW4 is 4 speed with electronic overdrive and the guy is selling it to me for 200 bucks with the TCU and wiring harness so **** it lol.
ive been looking on alot of info on the swap just couldnt find info on my questions...ive checked on stu olsons jeep but if i remember correctly it didnt mention much about that...
it was from parted out 97 cherokee 4x4 with 144,000 and im going to start the swap. i am aware the AW4 is longer than the TF999, and the TC needs to be clocked in order to fit..
now my question is since the AW4 is longer , would i be able to use the rear and/or front driveshaft from the cherokee on to my YJ? or would i need to go out and buy a custom driveshaft? the guy has both the driveshafts n i could make the purchase... just wonderin what are my options in order to get the jeep running with the front and rear driveshafts?
and just one more question.. my YJ is a column shifter and i would really like to keep it that way. ive read that it can be done and it shifts and works good but i cant find any pictures or any body explaining how to do it.. does any body know how to make the AW4 a column shifter instead of the floor shifter?
thank you guys alot man i appreciate it and i will be posting up pics soon on how i did the swap! cheers thank you! cheers
