Just an update if anyone is interested. went this past weekend and picked up a transmission mount, spare tire mount, and some other things. Drove the jeep for the first time today. runs great for a 4 cyl. So far, really no issues with the trans install, still need to install the transfer shifter, top off all the fluids, and double check the slave cylinder, it kinda sounds like the throwout bearing is riding on the pressure plate. I went with a 13.5 inch rear driveshaft, but it still may be about .5 inch too long.
