This is good advice. I had a 89 2.5L, after 2 AX5s Broken I put a NV4500 and atlas 2 Tcase in it. I could cruise well in 5 gear 65ish after that however it would have been smarter to sell it and spend that 5gs for the conversion on a 6 cylinder.
In the end I parted the 89 out, put the transmission, and tcase in storage and bought a 88 6cyl. which now has a 350 sbc.
Yeah - Its a Jeep thing. What can I say!
