Jeep Comanche 2.5L RWD to 4WD conversion.
Hi, I'm looking forward to this project, I own an 88 Jeep Comanche Pioneer with a 2.5L in it. The truck has 160,000 miles on it, and the engine runs near perfect, so I would like to avoid doing an unnecessary engine swap. I would like to convert this to 4WD as it is RWD as it is. I have an aisin AX4 manual transmission. I have done some research and found that to do so, and not switch transmissions, I can switch the output spline on the transmission to accept a N231 Transfer case, and change my front axle with one with a differential. The N231 transfer case is not a problem as I believe they are commonly found in XJ Cherokees 87 and up, and wranglers. The f ront DIFF is a little more difficult, Will a front diff and axle off of a Cherokee work? Even if it is a 4.0, I have 4:10 gears in my rear which means I need 4:10 gears in the front. Do the 4.0 cherokees come with the 4:10 gears or do I need to keep looking?
