The Dark One, Named Rumpelstiltskin.

So I Figured I will start a build thread.

I have owned my 2003 TJ freedom Edition, for a year now. So far in that year me and the jeep have been at war with each other.
Hence the name Rumpelstiltskin. When you make a deal with him you have to pay in the end. Here is what it looked like when i brought it home and tested it on the dirt mound in the back yard.

Well i took the dark one to Jeep Beach 2014, Before i left on the trip I made that deal with the Dark One saying get me to Daytona with no problems and don't let me break a axle while i am there ( yes i have a locked crappy Dana 35 )
So the Dark one agreed and had a great time while i was their. On the way home the Dark One collected on his deal with me, 3 hours from home the front drive shaft failed and took out the transfer case.

After destroying the transfer case, i could not find a usable 231 in my area and the junk yard wanted 450 for one. So checking with a friend of a friend who parts out jeeps, the only transfer case he had is a 1982 AMC 208 with a fixed yolk rear output. so he gave me the T case for free. The 208 went right on with no trouble. the only real issue was the shifter so i had to make one.
Also i had to have a new front drive shaft made and took a old CJ rear shaft and had it shortened to fit my jeep.
