Regarding your "homemade" Commando grill, which set of holes will you be using for the parking lamps? Or are you going to be utilizing all 4 holes for lights?

Just if anyone else is reading, I found out that I cant use my Model 20 on my chrysler 727. I have to use a dana 300, so Ill be looking for one when I get some mulah. Anyways in my 79 Jeep CJ I have a 304 with the Automatic GM hydromatic transmission. I believe this trans was connected to the model 20?? Anyways I dont believe this is the original motor and trans and such in my 79. I find it odd that the transfer case is engaged by a shifter simalr to whats found in the wagoneers but smaller. Does this make sense to anyone?

Sail, If you have some pics it would help id what you have. It sounds like you might have a Quadratrac xcase. Going by what you posted your questioning the transfer case model. As I recall, the only transfer case bolted from the factory was the Quadratrac transfer case. It's a full time unit. The smaller shift to wrote about. Is it on the floor by the driver seat? If so and I could be wrong, but it sounds like the opt. low range unit for the full-time case. Hope this helps.

Seems like everyday is a Monday.

See I was wrong. But I think the CJ's came with the GM tranny were only bolted to the Quadratrac xcase.

SO what do you do when you have 2 Jeeps neither of them work right? Build one!!
The 79 has massive rust problems in the frame and the 86 has a perfect frame and the running gear (axels) are crap. Here goes.....





86 tub


86 frame and 360 motor














grinding off body mounts ugh


big mess in the yard
