Smog requirements in your area may dictate how you go. You can probably pick up a complete 4.0 cheaper than a Howell kit. There are junkyard options for swapping in essentially a home built Howell...

Clogged CAT.

FYI, you'll likely get better responses starting a new thread. Many times people read the original post and respond without reading the remainder of the thread, plus this is a nine...

Never seen a YJ with them, have seen a number of Toyotas running them though.

Wondering why they say it can't be done? I know those early columns mounted below the dash and ran to the floor essentially not through the firewall. I think in stock form it will be way too long,...

Other than trying to find them through a recycler, I don't think anyone will have them new.

Here's a link with some good pics of the piece if you try to fab your own....

This is exactly where I am. I'm way more of a hands on kind of learner. If I was there building with someone it would all make total sense. Trying to read it and learn it, eh not so much.

I believe any LED replacement would only use the housing of the current light.

EDIT... Just looked and KC makes a LED replacement that just drops into the housing for $200 a set...

The CV will not take up anymore room than the current slip yoke.

It's certainly not ideal but it will work.

Ideally, you'd want to stretch the rear at least 4-6" (or get a different tranny)....

You should fill out your profile. It's quite possible the light you're trying to put there won't function once it's in there.

As for the bulb holder socket thing that twists into the board, your...

Assuming your '95 still has the stock 4.10 gears, it should be a direct swap.

FWIW, a 8.8 rear is stronger than a D44. Depending on your ultimate plans for the Jeep after the 350 swap and what...

THIS, a bajillion times +1 :grin2:


Before my stretch I ran BDS 2" lift spring SOA and never had any issue with harshness, I ran the Bilstein 5150 shocks.

Since the stretch, it's even softer...
