Let me tell you a story about AA. When I ordered my bell housing adapter from AA they didn't say I had to purchase a $650 flywheel and clutch assembly to make there set up work. They said, when I confronted them, that a stock flywheel and clutch didn't work. That it says on there website that when ordering this part that there is a recommendation hat you order this with it. I told them that if I would have known that I would have gone a different route. The guy that I talked to said that if I didnt want to spend that kind of money I shouldnt have started the swap in the first place and he didnt know of a cheap swap. They said that they would take the stuff back but I had to pay the shipping and restocking fee. That really pissed me off. But after all that it turned out to be a clean install and I am really happy with the way it turned out, everything but the price that is. Anyway the short of it is, those guys are there to sell there product.

Wow thats pretty ****ty. But when you are dealing with something as exclusive as an engine swap and AA is the only one mf. Of the one I want, I guess they dont have to have good customer service. It means everything to me though (as a business owner) and if they are dicks to me tomorrow then ill talk as much **** as I can haha

I dont mean to bash on them but I found they are a little short on customer service.

A JB conversions input shaft and a clocking ring on the Jeep t-case would allow you to bolt up the trans and t-case without any kind of adapter. The only problem with that is you then have no VSS for the GM computer. The hole pattern on the stock trans tail housing adapter is the same as the Jeep, just rotated 90*. 5 out of the 6 holes are symmetrical, one is offset. I almost went this route, but without having a VSS the cost associated with adding that drove me to buy a NP241c. Cost me $117 for the t-case shipped to my door, $400 and change for a JB conversions SYE for it with the stock Chevy VSS built in. Factory drop was a couple inches below the frame of the TJ, so I put a clocking ring on it to get it just about flush with the bottom of the frame rail. Total cost was about the same as the adapter setup from AA, I didn't have to deal with them, and I ended up with a stronger t-case at the same time.

I should have have looked harder for a 241 but with a quote of $300 from my local yard and the cost of a sye, the AA kit was a cheaper route. Im only running 33s for now and will move up to 35s soon so I think the 231 will be strong enough
