finished welding my floor back together...
thanks. I built it myself, i spent around $600 i think in materials, including the 8.8 and SYE.THIS is just dead sexy. how much did that cost? Is it a kit or did you just fab it all up yourself? Want to do mine for me too after I pick up another D44/9" combo to upgrade to?
not going to happen.nope. ive never considered it and dont think i will. id rather build the motor in other aspects and get the same hp and tq with stock bore and stroke...just proves i know what im doing around a motor
Motor makes more power and better mpg's than the 4.0 ever had. Sure, the interior is nice and not made of super cheap plastic like the xj. They handle better, ride smoother, everything Is more beefy and stronger than the xj ever came with. They are much more capable out of the box.bldeagle10 said:dislike the motor, dislike the interior, dislike what I feel is major influence from mercedes benz, dislike how they seem more plush than offroad, hate how you cant do a gear change without it throwing the tranny into "Safe Mode" and screwing you over unless you decide to fork over the extra cash that everyone loves spending while doing a gear change to buy an AEV controller because this is the ONLY way to get it out of "Safe Mode" dealership will turn you away cause they can't do anything... It's a Jeep JK (Just Kidding)...
today saw 327,000 miles exactly, splash of petrol, picked up a potential spare front DS

painted my ford 9'' pics up tomorrow. ordering teraflex disc brakes to replace the drums.
If you have a later model 231 with the sealed output shaft, then sure get a hackntap. But if you have the older style where the fluid comes out whenever you pull the driveshaft then you might as well get a full sye. Because after you buy the hack n tap and the new seal plate then you've spent just as much as you would have if you bought a full sye. And some say the new mainshaft of the sye is stronger. And the finished product just looks more complete than the Hntimthehink said:There is nothing wrong with hack and taps, I have never seen a negative issue with one. The only difference between a SYE and H&T is the price. Function over form IMO
a manual controller for the aw4?replacing the ECM with one from a 5-speed XJ, and replacing the TCM with a stand alone unit, like this one http://www.latentsolutions.com/suprastickuv.html,
Its designed for a supra but the Toyota A340 used in the supras (and many other Toyotas) is the same as the jeep AW4 :rtft:
And as far as I can google no one has tried to or thought of fitting one to a Jeep AW4.:trophy1:
Ok then.chriskeenan said:yes, I've seen them, i've even built one, they all trip the CEL and throw codes on OBD2 (97+) vehicles, even when using resistors to put a dummy loads the solenoid drivers, and the stock TCM goes into a limp mode is you mess with it to much, requiring a vehicle restart to reset to normal operation.
Using the 5-speed ECM will take care of the CEL when the stock TCM is removed, the SSv4 replaces the stock TCM and give us all the cool manual shifting options and still retains the auto shifting function. Plus you can custom program your auto shift tables, and have two different auto shift tables if you'd like, for example one for normal driving, and one for offroad that maybe holds first gear longer and doesn't try to downshift from second so soon.
