Found a lady stripping out her 94 cherokee. Anything I should snag?

 

I'm definitely gonna take the console and seats, depending on what color they are. Anythings better than the baby blue I have now

 

Its a 4door 2.5 auto, not sure on axles yet,

 

Will the brake booster work?

what years were they 4;56s ive got a rear axel out of a carberated 4cyl auto xj?

THat would have to be a 1984 or 1985. It could have 4.56s. A few years ago I had a 1984 XJ Wagoneer, 4-cyl auto. I gave it to a friend in my NAXJA chapter for his daughter, who was about to get her driver's license. He came down to my place to pick it up and I followed him most of the way back to his place to be sure he wasn't going to get stranded. He commented that the tach was showing some crazy RPMs at 55 MPH, so it probably had something like 4.56 gears in it.

This info is directly from the factory Data Books, Parts books, dealer brochures, and other original literature when available (new model introduction packets, Media kits, etc).

 

I won't guarantee it's 100%, but it's as close as I could get with the info that was available to me.

 

Where possible, more than one source was used to back up each available combo.

 

 

and those sources said you could get the 2.5L/AW4/4.56 combo in XJ's from 1987-1992. :dunno:

 

(FWIW, there was some conflicting data concerning the 2.5/AW4 availability during the same years in MJ's)

So wait- If i want to move from a 4 speed row-your-own to a 5 speed on my 87 2.5, I'd have to change axles from a 3.55 to a 4.11 to keep the speedo relatively accurate?

 

I only thought of changing trannys yesterday whilst driving highways through the Cascades; the 4 speed is geared too tall and is dog uphill... I was passed by an old lady in a Hyundai Accent! Maybe its the magic combo of small engine, tall tranny, and tall rear end :dunno:

No.

 

The 4 speed and 5 speed behind the 2.5 is geared the same. The AX-4 is identical to the AX-5 in every aspect, except for missing the 5th gear. 5 speeds got 4.10 axle gearing, 4 speeds got 3.55, so that the final drive in the highest gear would be about the same.

 

AX-4/5 gearing:

1 = 3.93:1

2 = 2.33:1

3 = 1.45:1

4 = 1.00:1

5 = 0.85:1

R = 4.74:1

 

Final drive works out to..

 

AX-4 = 1.00 x 3.55 = 3.55:1

AX-5 = 0.85 x 4.10 = 3.49:1

 

Changing transmissions will not affect your speedometer... changing axles will. All putting an AX-5 in place of an AX-4 will do is give you an extra gear, that's essentially useless unless you're doing 70+ on somewhat level ground. I know, I have one.

 

Besides, changing out a speedo gear is very easy.

BACK ON TOPIC: I wrote her offering to drive an hour, remove my own parts and pay her for them (break booster, seats and center console for sure) she wrote me back a blank message...no biggy, it happens. Wrote her again to let her know her message was blank. That was a week ago. No word back. :mad:

Aha. Thank you for the clarification. :thumbsup:
