I was thinking about Curry 35 spline high pinion ends with 4:11 or 4:56 gears. Not to sure about the tranny and transfer case yet. I would like to put in a nice man, but all the work for the clutch might be to much. Any ideas? It will have a clayton long arm with 8" lift, 35X14.5 15s or 38X15.5 16s.

Well Chrysler's tranny used in the the 94+ ZJ's is known for early failures when behind the 5.9 in the Rams and I would suspect similar results would come with the 5.9 limited ZJ especially cause those don't even have tranny coolers like the other years do. I'm not as familiar with Chrysler's trannys as I am GM's but the transmission used in the 1/2 pickups is at most about as strong as GM's 4L60E (which handle about 360lbs torque max). You may or not be able to beef it up enough to handle a built 440. Chrysler makes a heavier duty one for the Cummins and V10 but supposedly that isn't much better when put behind an engine churning out 450lb. Unfortunately the best/safest route would be to go with a 727 Torqueflite which obviously don't have OD. You could always buy a gear splitter unit from www.gearvendors.com but those are really expensive. I would seriously like to see how crowded it would be with a 440 in there. My 318 is already to tightly jamed in there for me and the 5.9L's evidently have underhood cooling issues from not enough airflow.

I am new to this board but, am a avid drag racer. I bought my 5.9 a year & a half ago.Since my shop is a NX dealer we thought it would be appropriate to spray the Jeep. To my suprise it ran a 13.80 @100mph.I have a video clip somewhere I'll try to post it soon.Since this run and many others I have put 10k on it. It is with out a doubt the best vehicle I have ever owned.

CHEATIN: how do you like the kit? How do you have it setup in the jeep/under the hood and when does it spray?

I ask all these questions because I have a 5.2 that is modded and I am in the process of getting a N20 kit. I am looking at a NX kit or venom kit, and I need to real world opinions and details.


Thanks.

I will NEVER use anything but NX. They helped me make my nos kit from another car work on my Jeep. They are a class act. I love the kit. It's alot nicer then the nos kit I had. I am a NX dealer if you have any more questions just ask. I have a video of the run I'm just not sure how to post it yet.

I have some questions for you...

I need any info on the kit you can give me. Is it computerized? How do I open the bottle, how is it engaged, is it easy to use for an amateur, does it come with 4 nozzles, fogger, dry, wet?

I have more, but this is all I can think of right now.

Wilczewski13@aol.com

Thank you!

Ok here goes...It is not computerized. You open the valve on the bottle.To arm the system 3 things need to happen. The 1st is the bottle needs to be on.The 2nd is the system needs to be armed. I use a key switch instead of the cheap toggle that will come with the kit.This way the system cannot be armed without the key.The 3rd step is a "wide open throttle" switch which is installed on the throttle body near the throttle cable.This switch is triggered when you put your foot to the floor. If any of those steps are missed the nitrous will not work.
The kit is a "wet" system. That means that nitrous and gas are injected into your motor. There is a line that goes from the bottle to the nitrous cylinoid then to the fogger nozzle.There is also a gas line that runs from your fuel rail to the fuel cylinoid then to the fogger nozzle. When you attach the fuel line to the rail there is a core you have to take out. it requires a core tool you can order from any parts store.When you remove the core fuel will spill out all over so try to catch it with a rag. DO NOT forget this step. If you do it will lean out the motor and probably hurt it.
The wiring is the most challenging, but it still really is'nt that hard. I could walk you through it if you needed help.
The last thing is you will want to put new plugs in that are 2 heat ranges colder. After that you should be ready to roll!!!!


Bottle presure is a big thing,900-1000 psi is optimum. NEVER have a bottle over filled. It should weigh no more then 25lbs when its full. Heat is what makes the presure in the bottle go up so a gauge is another thing that is important to have. This way you can monitor the bottle psi.

Common sence goes along way so if you have a question ask. There are no stupid ones.


I had the Jeep video E-mailed to me, However I have no I dea how to show it. Any ideas?

Thank you! Do you have dry kits?


Is this a similar kit?
http://www.advancedperformanceengineering.com/efi.htm

It is the "Shark" kit
*Part # 20210 / 20921 Jeep V-8 All models (50-75-100-150hp) 10lb bottle / 14ft (D-4) - $629.00, plus shipping

I really appreciate all this help. I am not going to try the install by myself, but have some friends that know what they are doing and said they would help.

I would'nt recommend a dry kit with this application. Also I may able to beat that price on the kit. Your probably looking at closer to $600 plus shipping. Either way that is the right kit.

No trouble for the help.


Any ideas on posting that video?

Thanks

If I would have know that vid would end up on the net I would have kept my big mouth shut. Ok probably not!

If I remember right you red lighted and Daryl cut bad one, the roles reversed for once!

Seriously Jeepers, Cheatins' truck runs strong. 13.80's and then a few months later he's pulling a fullsize Bronco out of the sand UPHILL.

Take your camera this weekend...we can't make it and I'd love to see some footage.

Was wondering how long it would be till I found you lurking on a Jeep board Ryan. I am suprised you did not comment on the speaker question as well.

Hey Wally! Well after dealing with that crap all day it's not something I like to discuss outside of the shop. I never look at the car audio boards. There way to many conflicting opinions for me.
Nitrous is alot more fun to talk about!
