Hey, guys. I'm buying a 5.2L engine & 46RH tranny from a '94 ZJ. I'll be putting the V8 into my YJ Wrangler with an NV3500 manual tranny. Since I won't be using the 46RH, I'd like to know if it can be used in anything besides '93-'95 ZJs with 5.2L engine? For example, could it be used as a replacement for 42RE in 6cyl ZJs, or in Dodge trucks? I'd like to know its compatibility before I advertise it for sale.
Just like my Jeep hat says: "Life is good... do what you like, like what you do."
Thanks for the input, Tim. If it weren't too late, I would heed your advice and go with the NP435 and get the low-range 1st gear. I have owned the NV3500 for almost a year, though, and it's one reason I decided to go with a Dodge V8 instead of SBC. My NV3500 came out of a '99 Ram 1500 and has about 40K miles on it. It has the integrated bellhousing that will bolt up to the 5.2L V8.
In order to get a better crawl ratio, I may end up putting a 4:1 TeraLow kit into the NP231. But I'll worry about that later.
It will work for OBD I computer engines: 3.9L V6 and 5.2L and 5.9L V8.
Hey, Tim. If the 46RH will bolt up to the 318/5.2L and 360/5.9L, would it also bolt up to an older Dodge 273 V8? I found a guy who wants to put my 46RH behind his 273, along with a Dana 300 xfer case. Any idea if this would work? If not, where should I check? I've done some Internet searches, but have come up empty.
