I drove one of them over 300 miles round trip in order to search for some parts at a full size jeep junk yard in the mountains. I went in order to pull an hp44 didn't end up with the right tools so I got a 727 Torque flight tranny instead for $50 and will return for the front axles some time after my daughter is born the pull my hp44 w/hi steer. Also came across a one of a kind Mopar muscle on the way up.

It can be with a different tail stock. The particular one I got is from a grand wagoneer with a 360 and Dana 20... I believe... Its had a reversed valve body, upgraded gearing 3.14 1st as opposed to the 2.45, ad well as a 2500 rpm stall converter on the way. Not yet sure how to apply this the the ZJ as its a vacuum modulated trans, and I have no clue how the computer will react... Physically it will bolt right in with either the 4.0 or the 5.2 and the NP231j I have. Other than that its all uncharted territory for me so far. Not even sure if I'll use it if sell it...

I believe if you use it in a v8 grand you can use a dodge manual ecu and be okay

Except that my BCM has the security option... I am going to figure this out either way, may bend up being trial and error. Well see what my research turns up...loll.l......

Are the BCM and ECU all in one? I always thought the BCM was separate. I'm probably wrong

There ecu is under the hood and the bcm is in cabin under the center console... I know if you put an ecu with security in without a security equipped bcm the thing won't start. Not sure about the other way around...

PICS,PICS!!
What color tinting? I am thinking of yellow tinting my turn signals, seems like everybody has smoked signals, just looking for something different.

I don't know how to upload off my phone and am not near a computer but they are smoked. Used vht niteshades. I want to paint my cladding and bumpers black and think the black grill would be too much so did the blinkers instead. It's a nice accent. And my jeep is white btw

Smoked on white looks good! I got some yellow film to do my fog lights, but may do the turn signals instead.
