What all do you have to do to convert one from 2 to 4 wheel drive ..
I have a good 1998 2 wheel drive grand cherokee and can't find a 4 wheel drive to buy ..I've seen several wrecked or blown motor ones ..
Tell me what I have to swap over ...thanks
I am not one to be changing lanes at 70 mph on a lifted truck on 33's, but since I am in Miami, I have to be prepared for the continuous influx of new drivers whose previous ride was a bicycle with wooden wheels.
Well that's what I thought But I've been looking for one with a messed up motor ..that what I did on my 2wheel drive ..I had overheated an busted the head .. I got it for $275.00 after all was said I now have $1100.00 in it But it's been a good one..Get 16.5 mpg starts every time and air is cold ..will freeze you out ..Of course the radio might get 3 stations on a good day ..That a jeep thing so I've been told. Great tires ..
....I been looking for a 4x4 to get .I'd rather fix one than swap my motor into the next one because I hate to disable mine ..I feel I can sell my 2 wheel drive after I get a 4by going ..
I've been thinking about trying to do the same thing myself. Say you don't want to sell your jeep and just want to upgrade it to a 4x4, it could be done without blowing something up? Also, would the display on the dash work if you just plugged it in, or would you have to do more to it?
Could you put the display in a 2x4 and have it work though?
Yes, but really, the conversion will cost you more than buying a working 4x4 Jeep. If anything, buy the 4x4, and swap over everything you've done to customize yours, because that's what you're going to do anyway when you give up about halfway through converting yours to 4 wheel drive.
2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.
I thought it would probably be more expensive, i just wasn't sure if it could be done. It's more of something i'd like to do if i could get the money for it, but also i want to put the vehicle info thing in my 2x4. I grabbed one from the junk yard but i think it got screwed up when they wrecked that jeep. Guess Ill find another one somewhere and see if it'll work. Thanks for the help though!
Your best bet is to find a 4x4 with blown motor or something and use your 2x4 as the donar vehicle. By the time you finish converting yours over you'll kick yourself in the butt when you tally up the money and hours involved.
That what I was thinking but one of the techs at old work kept telling me it was easy to do. I was like you guys sell the 4x2 and get a 4x4 .. But man I've not found a 4x4 yet .. One sunday I drove to Dallas to pick one up .. For $750.00 Electrial problems .. When I got in BAD SIDE OF bIG D... BFE .. Guy tells me it's not there been stolen .. Ya right .... Just have not found a 2nd good one. For the Bucks.
