4.0l into 1985 cj7

I am swapping in a 4.0,5 speed, and transfer case from a cherokeeand was wondering if anyone else has done this and how well it worked for them. I also plan to use my stock axles for now, someday I will be doing a 4 link and use tj lift springs on it.

The Dana 300 is suppose to mate up to the AX-15 with a clocking ring. It will also mate up to the NV3550 if you redrill the tailhousing. I am in the process of that one. If you use a clocking ring on a NV3550, then Advanced Adpaters sells a kit with a longer input shaft. There about a 1/2 difference in output shafts for the NV3550 and AX-15. I hope he's not using a BA-10/5.

I hope you're not saying that you bought a set of Wrangler axles to go with the drivetrain. If so, you just wasted your money...
