Hey James, I don't if this will help or not depending on how you did the compression test. If you missed any steps repeat it like this:

Charge the battery if the battery is not fully charged.
Disable the ignition system.
Disable the fuel injection system.
Remove all of the spark plugs.
Block the throttle plate wide open.
Start with the compression gauge at zero, and crank the engine through 6 compression strokes (6 puffs). ( Note: I use four )
Make the compression check for each cylinder. Record the reading.
If a cylinder has low compression, inject approximately 15 ml (one tablespoon) of engine oil into the combustion chamber through the spark plug hole, recheck the compression and record the reading.
The minimum in any one cylinder should not be less than 70% of the highest cylinder. No cylinder should read less than 100 PSI. For example, if the highest pressure in any one cylinder is 150 PSI, the lowest allowable pressure for any other cylinder would be 105 PSI.
Interpreting the readings.
Normal: Compression builds up quickly and evenly to the specified compression for each cylinder.
Piston Rings Leaking: Compression is low on the first stroke. Compression builds up with the following strokes but does not reach normal. Compression improves considerably when you add oil.
Valves Leaking: Compression is low on the first stroke. Compression usually does not build up on the following strokes. Compression does not improve much when you ad oil.
If two adjacent cylinders have lower than normal compression and injecting oil into the cylinders does not increase the compression, the cause may be the head gasket leaking between the cylinders.
Call me if you have any questions.

We have one right in the town of Poughkeepsie off Rt.9.

Harbor Freight is a godsend for certain items. I plan on getting their tubing roller and the SwagOffroad.com weld-on kit for it. For the price it can't be beat!

No problem, if you have any questions let me know. I'm no master welder but I love fabrication and did it prior to becoming a fireman. It's a good trade to pick up!

Did the leak test.
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image.
This is the worst one and its on the side thats leaking oil. all others were at 20 or below. I did the test with the motor cold. I read that its ok and a warmer engine gives better readings ( lower percentage).
I did the test by finding TDC with the mark on the fly wheel. The other 5 others I put air into the tester and moved the flywheel and watched the guage drop and felt the resistance of the compression to find TDC. I felt this was an acceptable method.
The plugs are back in and Im going to try it again tomorrow when the engines warm

The XJ tranny causes the t-case to be clocked slightly lower. That could have changed your pinion angle enough to cause an issue. Without a CV style driveshaft, the shaft and pinion yoke should be close to being in line. Is your transfer case stock?
