  1. O_O There is a wrecker 1.5 miles from my old house that claims to have a 100,000-ish mile AW4 for $275 and already pulled.
  2. Doing some late night dumb stuff. I just bought the underhood, engine, dash accessory, and dash power wiring harnesses off eBay for $275.34. This is stage one of unscrewing up all of my mistakes and will get it into a stock wiring state. This way I can sell the Haltech Elite 2500 for money towards a replacement transmission. Also, this will fix the air conditioning and cruise control.
  3. The PA Jeeps show being in a different location will be weird!
  4. Who is planning to attend this year? http://pajeeps.org/ July 18 and 19 I will attempt to be there this time and I do have a working Jeep.(Assuming I don't get laid off by then!)
  5. I believe the strength progression goes Built AW4 > Stock AX15 > Stock AW4.
  6. It looks like a remanufactured AX15 plus the additional parts I would need are around $1,000.(Not including driveshafts.) That is much better than $2,000+ for rebuilding an AW4 to take the abuse.
  7. This is the second one and third torque converter. I keep breaking them. Also, the 1997 AW4 is an oddly specific transmission year. I can get an earlier transmission, but I would also need to make wiring harness modifications.
  8. It has done maybe twenty miles in the past two years. :(
  9. Poll, sort of: I am super frustrated with the AW4, it will cost way too much to rebuild it, and I am close to just parting out this truck over a transmission issue. So, time for a manual transmission swap? I would have to collect a clutch pedal again since I believe I sold that. New/modified driveshafts. Relocate the wiring harness that is using the clutch hole in the firewall.
  10. The TJ Rubicon front axle is a hybrid of a D44 and D30, but it is better than the stock D30.
  11. There is a dedicated button on the center stack to turn off overdrive. I frequently had to use it even in stock form. The Toyota AW4 in the XJ had a high amount(~30%) of transmission loss, but the Chrysler 42RLE in the LJ is terrible. I basically drove it with the throttle pedal smashed down. Oh, I also had to replace it with another one because the 2-4 clutch pack shredded itself just from towing a trailer around and I had even installed an auxiliary transmission cooler to bring the temperatures down. Bring the temperatures down was very relative since it still ran incredibly hot since the transmission cooler lines run in between the hot side of the engine and the two smaller catalytic converters that come right off the exhaust manifold. Also, the rearward catalytic converted is hot box between the floor, frame, and skid plate next to the transmission so the right side of the transmission gets cooked too. A poor transmission that had no hoping of surviving in the conditions it was given to run under. My LJ is technically the most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned and a reasonable person would have ditched it years ago. If you take the time to add the auxiliary cooler, sleeve the transmission lines with heat shield, and heat shield the transmission from the catalytic converter on the right it will probably last significantly longer than mine.
  12. I spoke for it myself earlier today. I am going to use it as part of a display setup for SEMA(Assuming I make it...) this year.
  13. I will be out tomorrow up that way so I will stop by and get more pictures of the tail lights along with information on their condition.

This kit requires disassembling one of the PCM connectors to add the terminals.(You can see when I installed it here: https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/project-alexia-s-nice-jeep-628045/index14.html#post7877414) - $100 shipped Oh yeah, anyone want to buy a Comanche?
