Just did my '93. You need the external slave bellhousing, external slave cylinder, different fork and bearing, different bearing retainer (it has a long nose for bearing to slide on), and new line between master and slave. Scored my bearing retainer from a dakota in the junk yard for cheap, advanced adapters sells the line kit, and bought the bellhousing on ebay. There is a bunch of threads here that could help you out if you do a search. It's a great upgrade. Oh ya and alot patience to get the top bellhousing bolts out.

Do you have donor information on that Dakota? I'd like to confirm my notes...

I think I read about it here or in JP mag. Dakota ran the ax15 for a number of years, I'm thinking mine came out of a '97. I will think some more and thumb thru some old issues and post again if I come up with it. That was the hardest part to find. It was cheap, but I had to pull it myself. I think $20+/-

Still can't remember where I got the dakota idea from but this is one of the write ups I used. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/l...p-pics-965067/
