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.

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.
