Adding a V-8 Auto Tranny and Transfer Case... Suggestions???
Please bear with me as this is my first post and I have some questions...
What I have-
I have a 1989 YJ that's in Awesome shape, No Rust. Has the 151 ci, 4 cylinder with 189,000 and a 5 speed.
1991 Wrangler Renegade with a Junk / Blown 6 cylinder and Auto Tranny.
What I want to do-
Add a 4" lift, 33" tires and a Mopar 318 V-8.
Can I pull the auto tranny, transfer case and steering coloum from the Renegade and swap it into my 1989YJ, then add the Mopar 318 V-8.
See I have a hot line on the 318 that has only 50,000 miles on it, is a frequent driver and a real solid motor. My cousin can rebuild the tranny and check out the transfer case for me, so Im assuming all I would need to do is trade out steering coloums for the standard to automatic. Is there a kit I need for the motor swap, transmission kit or basically what will I need to do the sawp.
CAN THIS BE DONE?
Im adding a couple pics of my upgrades.
Please be polite as I am a total novice at this but Im learning alot.
Last summer I replaced the interior... From Gray to Black. 3 years ago I painted the entire Jeep with 27 cans of Krylon Spray Paint (YES I'm a woodchuck) but it came out half decent.
After the swap I will add the lift, tires and get a semi pro paint job. Im going with an Electric Neon Orange color with polished aluminum A/R Rims.
I will post the progress.
From the Newbie :wavey:
yes i believe you can. you just need to get the righ fit up kit for the tranny to fit the engine. and the steering column will work too.
That's one pretty YJ!
When you swap in a V8 don't they suggest beefing up the axles?
so the tranny and transfer case will work with the stock front and rear ends or will I have to replace them also?
why do you have to swap out steering columns ? im lost.
For the P R N D L shifter which is on the column on my '01 YJ. My '89 YJ has a 5 speed on the floor. It's either switch columns or find a console out of a Cherokee for the auto shifter. I'd rather have it on the column though.... and the '01 YJ has tilt wheel... a definate plus.
gotcha! thanks. i thought i overlooked something.
