get a 231 out of a dodge so it already has the wider chain and gears and slowly built it up as you find parts/ used parts

Update:


Decided on going with a 231...

- 231j with a build date of February 1996 out of an XJ: acquired
- Wide chain, front output shaft, and chain sprocket out of a Durango 231D HD: acquired
- 231 rebuild kit: ordered
- 231D 1.25" NEw chain: ordered
- JB conversions SYE: ordered
- 6 pinion planetary gear: ordered
- ZJ 231 4wd indicator switch: waiting for the salvage yard to yank it and send me a pic

Hopefully everything that has been ordered will get here by friday. Stay tuned for more pics and progress

Throw in a 2wd 2low. I still regret not doing that while mine was apart.

I would but I just dont have the extra funds. Itll even be a stretch to get my current rear cv shaft lengthened to work with the 231 sye...

^^^^ Ok, so I jumped the gun.

I am NOT vibration free. I have spent the last year or so intermittently chasing down my vibes. I am beginning to think it is the Tranny output bearing.


I apologize, I have just gotten wrapped up with school and work (currently at two internships - both part time) and haven't updated this thread. So I owe you guys a hefty update.

Don't worry though; I have been lurking the past year or so and have been working on the ZJ's a bunch. The 5.9 became a major PITA for awhile but it's still going tough.



I promise an update sometime this week. Maybe tomorrow unless I chose to work on the ZJs all day.. Regardless, soon my friends, soon.


John
