A few things, its a 4.2 i6 its a 3 speed (I think I'd like a 4 speed).
Has 31" tires speedo reads about 10 mph low. Looks like it was a frame off resto 5-6 years ago. They did a nice job and it won't take much to get it in very nice driving condition. Still have lots of arkansas dirt to get off of it.
i need to verify but i think i have a t-150 3 speed with a dana 20 transfer case. i dont believe the t176 will work with the dana 20. a t-18 will with an adapter. the adapter seems pricy and i still need to buy the t-18!. it seems the dana 20 is bomb proof and the t-150 is a solid transmission. maybe i will just have to live with the 3-speed.
yes its an 82, the paint is the wrong color. its in great shape so i will be living with it for now. seems my mom didnt know much about the jeep, it was her late husbands. it was a frame off resto circa 2002. has the wrong tranny and xfer case. overall im very happy with it. i think im better off with the f-150 tranny and dana 20 xfer case. also the rear axle is posi, not sure if that is origional or not but there is definately no slip. i can feel the tires hoping on slow tight corners.
