Stole my good wipers off the 5.2 to drive the ninner.
ordered spacers and extended brake lines from IRO
Bought a coil adapter to run my 6Al2 MSD Box and blaster Coil on the ninner.
bought an o2 bung for the second sensor on the ninner, and picked up some band clamps.
and 4 new lift struts for the hatch.

My ZJ did something for me, we took it out to Phenix city, my good friend riding shotgun, took him car shopping, we got him a nice 2000 XJ limited, near mint condition with 114 onthe clock for 4200.00 then we went goody shopping,he got CB, Stereo, got a set of rims with kumo's 235's on it and he is now deciding on a lift from allsouth autosports. So we will have a new jeepster here in a day or two on the forum. It was a good day in the world of Jeep. Mine gets her lift and tires put on saturday.

I May Have a Jeep, But I Can't Fix Stupid.

Hi I have a 94 Grand Cherokee 4.0, tran. 42re, tc is 249J.
I had same problems with it .
Tha car startrs slowing down alot after the first 300fit it also pulls to the right side and when is about 5 ml per hr. I can hear the tires slip. This was a working 249J from 93 v8 grand Cherokee. My original 249J start clicking very loud when I go down hil and after few days was clicking all the time so I replaced it. I also instal a new transmission and torque convertor, new axel drives, new brackes new disks inspected diferential boxes.
I am runing out of ideas. If some one can help . Thanks

Sounds like your 249 is going south.
Remove the front drive shaft and check out the front diff. See if it spins or hangs up any.
I would replace the 249 with a 242 or a 231 lots of info here on the swap. The 249s tend to eat them selfs up, along with the front diff.

Do not run a 93-95 249 without the front ds
it does not lock so when in park the truck will roll

to check if the 249 is bad do tight figure 8 loops in a parking lot if it skips and hops while turning, the 249 (VC) is bad

also this should have its own tread or search

Thank you so much, for answering to me. I did open and take a pert the rear differential box and all gears are in very good shape the car is only 70 000 ml. but the front one I only open and visually inspected it .It moves and
not worn out .
Next I am going to try removing the front drive shaft and see whats going on.

rethreaded oil pan drain hole, and put in a new plug. I did not torque it to spec, I fear that there is not enough metal down there to hold the threads!

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
