Need Help With a 4x4 Conversion

Just as the title says, I need some help starting and completing a 4x4 conversion on my 1996 2WD XJ. I have an identical 4x4 96 XJ with a blown engine.

I have no date set as of yet. The purpose of this thread is to hopefully get a few guys committed to come helping me with this and getting a date set up. I should have most tools to complete this conversion at my house. Right now the XJ with the blown engine is sitting in my dad's truck yard in Kearny Mesa and I have been daily driving my green XJ.

If anyone would like to help, please either post in this thread or PM me. If you live a few hours away I do have 2 guest bedrooms in my house available.

I would like to have this conversion done before I leave for college in late August.

Thanks a lot guys I really appreciate it!

seems like it would be easier to swap motors rather than the drive train.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Yup you're exactly right, the donor is a total piece of junk. I don't even know if the transmission is in need of a rebuild or not. With the shape the rest of the Jeep is in, I think it might.
