heres the situation.... i have a YJ frame, cj7 fiber body, amc 304 engine, XJ ax-15 tranny, XJ np231 t-case, since there wasnt any v8 in yjs i made a 1/4inch shim between the engine and tranny, machined the pilot bearing along with other minor mods, so the 304 is now in the frame, i made the front custom engine mounts, now time to make the rear one, it will be a custom crossmember for the t-case support along with a custom skidplate, since i will put a 4inch suspensin lift (and if the yj was stock) i would need the lower the t-case, since mine is custom i can put it right where it should go... so questions are :
i bought a 93 cherokee for the tranny but also have the front driveshat wich is a double joint , could it fit the rear of the yj since its shorter ? where i work we have a driveshaft guy wich should be able to weld me the double yoke to the stock driveshaft then make a slipyoke in it and balanced so modification isnt a problem just want to know if it would be good, i dont want vibes
since i dont have the 4inch lift now the only way i can measure where the t-case must be bolted is the angle of the t-case or tranny, i measured the t-case angle on my father XJ and found 6 degree so i assume that running the engine/tranny/t-case at 10 degree would be correct ??
