well aware of the problems with the axles.
but this is what I have for now...
still looking for a good deal on some 44s at least

yes this is a mall crawler
after she gets scratched up a bit and the newness wares off. we will see about taking the jeep where it was meant to be ....off road... but it is a bit too glossy right now

Very cool build! I really wanted to put a 4bt in my MJ project but I couldn't figure out a way to adapt it to the 97+ Jeep electical system.
Are you running aftermarket guages?
What are you doing about your HVAC system?

Woodkrawler,

I worked a couple of hours last night on the wiring.
the stock gauges will work except the tach.
but there is a fix for that you notch the lower crank pulley
and put your crank sensor on it.

I put a vaccum/power steering pump unit on the 4BT
so my power booster for my brakes will work, also runs the HVAC contols
