Hello everyone and thanks for looking. I've been pulling my hair out trying to get this fixed for years now, so I'm looking to fellow jeepforum members for help. If you're short on cash, have some free time, and looking for a side job, hopefully we can work something out.
Vehicle: 1996 ZJ Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4wd, V8, Automatic, Quadratrac.
Location: San Jose, CA
Basically, I bought my Jeep ZJ a while back and it was missing the front drive shaft (or propeller shaft, as some call it). The only reason I figured someone took it out was because the transfer case went bad.
So I bought a transfer case to replace the one I have. It's the exact same model, direct swap.
My headache came in searching for a drive/propeller shaft. First, I bought one, only to find out it was too long.
Then, I bought another one that was a few inches shorter, only to find out that was still too long AND it had a busted cap on top, which I later found out was squirting gear lube out of.
So at this point, I'm frustrated and just want to pay for help to get my Jeep back to a 4wd.
I need someone to help me:
- Locate a working, good condition, correct length drive/propeller shaft.
- Remove old transfer case
- Prep and install replacement transfer case & driveshaft.
If you're interested, can you please send me an email or PM and we can go from there. Thank you so much!
