parts included, with you having the Jeep dropped to a shop, I would say, $1300 would be in the ballpark without you having to do a thing. The Dana 35 is easy. I have seen people pay much more than...

crank position sensor maybe, they are a common problem and weak link in the Jeeps, but I am leaning toward a bad dist. cap if moisture seems to be the culprit.

When I did my swap, I bought the entire vehicle with the drive train I wanted to use. 89 Ramcharger, 4 SPD manual, TBI 360 v8. The axles I used are Chevy 14 bolt and Dana 44 HD.

Balancing beads are the only thing that I have found that worked without internal pad balancing which is hard to find someone that even does it.
The bead balancing worked good on my 33" ssr's which...

I don't think a 4 cyl pcm will work on a 6 cyl due to obvious differences.

I would check for spark before anything else. Did you clean it with water and get the dist. cap wet perhaps?
If you...

The 8.8's go for about 100 bucks around here at the u-pull junk yards. The perches will need to be cut off and new ones welded on, so make sure to plan on that
