Going In For A Heart Transplant

Just dropped the jeep off, they're gonna start on it tomorrow. Gettin a crate 4.7 put in. I was so tempted to have some work done to it first, but the misses shot that down since she's the one who drives it the most.

I know one thing... I'll never tow a jeep with a two wheel dolly anymore. I couldn't find a full trailer anywhere so I didn't have a choice. Had to yank the driveshaft out. I also found out the hard way that you can't back up.

Anyway, it's there, and it'll be done in a week. Hope it goes well.

just replacing the old 4.7. It seized up on me driving down the road, but it's got 176k and burns a little oil. I've been putting off a rebuild anyway...

That's for flat towing. Towing on a dolly is totally different, you must remove the rear driveshaft. Ask me how I know

Want to swap an NP242 or NP231 into your ZJ? Here's how:

You're right about backing up with those things. They have a tertiary pivot system that makes them unpredictable to move in reverse beyond a foot or two. Prolly the U-haul version, right?

I also did think that using neutral on the transfer case would be ok and am interested in why not too.

Because in an AWD transfer case, Neutral disengages the drive wheels from the transmission, however it does not disengage the front axle from the rear axle. If the front wheels are sitting on a dolly, the rear drive shaft will not be able to turn. Thus the removal of the rear drive shaft.

Gotcha.... so it sounds like a Selec-Trac transfer case is no problem to dolly-tow.

Selec-Trac for the win again!

Yeah, it was a Uhaul dolly.

The new one is only gonna be about 2500 installed. He's keeping the old motor to rebuild.
