New To Jeeps and the Jeep Forum


My name is Mitch and I've been on the forum looking around for a couple of weeks. I just registered and decided to posy my hello, and my first question.

This is the jeep I got for $1000. Its a 1987, XJ, 2x4, 5speed, i4.

My other project is my 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT - Engine Swap Underway

So my question is, how hard would it be to add 4x4 to my Jeep? I want to keep it a 4cylinder. I (kinda) want a 5 speed. What does it take? Does my current trans have the place to bolt up a T-Case? Would I need a replacement trans?

Anyway, I love my jeep and its been really cool so far. I've fixed a lot of small things so far like the left turn signal return spring, stereo, alignment, and cleaning.
