I've been driving mine topless for the past 3 weeks. Just trying to get miles on it to get the rebuild broken in (just hit my 500 mile mark today), then change the oil.

Alright well I was all exceeded to post up some pics of the trans swap I did a few weeks back (I said swap not conversion )

However the new trans I bought from a local 4x4 shop that had around 70k on it decided to lose 5th on the way into class today (and prolly more since I hear a grinding noise)... It had been in the jeep for about 300 miles maybe...

so tonight I started removing the newer trans from the heep... Tomorrow I'm taking the original trans up to the shop, placing it ever so kindly on the floor and asking for a rebuild...

now it seems smarter to have swapped that ax-15 in

anyways heres a few pics of it all, first time I've done a trans swap at home hahaha and tonight will make it the second


old trans + t-case...


new trans + t-case


it fits with the lightbar off and the top down!


and finally the most important tool for a garage in any state that has cold weather

changed tranny fluid & figured out that one of the 4 wires was cut on the vehicle side of the harness & was causing my never-ending check engine light while i was replacing my o2 sensor. no more light though!!! (& i'd probably never have thought to trace the wires back if the autoxray i got off ebay didn't show that the computer was getting no info from the sensor)
t-case tomorrow & if the weather holds out the diffs too.

I pulled down the fuel tank to get to the fuel pump (which is bad). I discovered that the fuel hoses, both the filler and vent, were rotted and cracked. I ended up having to cut one just to be able to lower the tank.

I'm now shopping for the hoses but 1" fuel resistant hose is almost impossible to find on a Sunday. Its looking like the dealership or Quadratec is gonna be the answer.

I can't post pics, but here are the links:

Pic of the flares..

Here's my project from a couple days ago....all in all it turned out pretty good. In my experience, dont cut the rear flares with a plasma torch. The plastic fender liners make for a little excitment.

here's the passenger side, the other side looks exactly the same.

In the past 2 weeks, I: changed the oil & filter...tryin out this Quaker State "Torque power" full synthetic (5w30 for winter), rotated tires & put some ol' tape over the soft-top's windows' gaps...winters are breezy in Chicago! I may have to change out the starter tho, she needs to get "banged" to start sometimes.

I replaced the fuel pump, the fuel filler hose and the tank vent hose. PITA!

To top it all off....the thing still won't start!
