Hiyah....

Sorry If This Gets Asked This Alot.... I Searched Found Nothing....

I Figured I'd Hear That..... I Love the WJ So Much.... I'm Going to Get a 2nd in the Patriot Blue Like I Wanted to Begin With... Prob. Keep the 2WD Too.....It Has Too Much Power for 2 Wheels (Especially the Rear) ... Sometimes it Hard Not to Burn Out...

It is possible, but there will be work involved. Axle, transmission, transfer.case, drive shafts, etc need to be changed over. Might as well buy a donor wj if you're really interested in doing it. You can part it out and maybe break even and learn a lot in the process

Thats What I was Hoping, a NICE Cond. Donor With a Bad Engine....

I Can Get the Color (Patriot Blue Overland) I Wanted.... Swap Over the Entire Drive-train

Then I'll Have a Donor Car in Great Shape (86K)

Thanks for the Input Guys....

So I'll Have to Take Everything Under This Hood, and Swap it, Unto This Hood....Sounds Easy Enough

I'm in the same boat with my 98 zj so I know the feeling. I'm doing the same conversion to my vehicle. still on the hunt for a front axle and drive shafts. Nearly had a donor for 400, but missed it by a few hours yesterday
