Well, we have three. Here for tach and bs, fb for just bs (too many trolls for tach advice) and the IG for wheeling pics.

Afternoon guys. Been busy as hell lately with work and Army.

Good news is my transmission adapter will be here the end of the week. Time to start disassembling the MJ. Only 2.5L part I'm keeping is the flywheel (to trigger my tach). My custom radiator is going in a buddy's 2.8L MJ. Everything else will go.

How's everybody doing these days? I've been pretty busy, picked up (yet) another XJ, this one is a 1998, used to belong to St. John's County Sheriff's Dept. Picked it up super cheap, needed a little TLC, but it's coming along nicely. It was 2wd, converting it to 4x4 since I have all the stuff to do it already, just sitting in the garage taking up space. The stock D35 had a bad growl to it (bad axle bearing) so I pulled it out and put a 29 spline 8.25 in the rear with 4.10 gears, Installed a Zone 3" lift kit with full leaf packs, new Moog control arms in the front, new Moog track bar and stuck the D30 in the front which I'll be re-gearing to match the rear. I put on BFG KO2 31x10.50-15 on it on Tactic 15x8 wheels, with the 4.10 gears the thing goes great! I'll be swapping out the 2wd trans for the 4x4 trans / transfer case within the next few weeks probably.

Hey, hope everyone is doing well. Sorry, I've been busy with work and Army business lately. Got almost everything ready to swap the MJ to a diesel.

Well, does anyone need any 2.5L parts or engines? I got two of them. One Renix/AMC (TBI) and one ChryCo (MPI) The MPI even has a wiring harness and ECU. Have two TBI units, 2 TBI intake manifolds and a long tube 2.5L header.

The 2.5L TB is smaller diameter than the 4.0L one. The other two are TBI (throttle body with an injector inside it)

Yeah, it's that time of year where things slow down.

Been doing good, got about 95% of everything for it.
