99 running gear into 88MJ


Recommended Posts

Picked up an AX15, NP231, front drive shaft and front Dana 30 axle out of a 99 Cherokee at the junk yard today. I plan on making my Manche from 2X to 4X4 for winter, instead of buying a beater. Any issues? Small things I am going to run into? I also got the coil springs, upper and lower stock control arms, shifters, linkages, and wiper motor. I think it will go smoothly, but I want to bring the axle to a ring and pinion shop and have them condition it before it gets installed. Pics of the donor axle in the next post.

So what will I need to condition the axle to run correctly? I see the drivers side hub is missing, I will order 2 of those so they are both fresh, looks like a drivers side axle shaft, brake disks, pads and calipers. What should I be looking for as far as seals and gaskets?

Wow the xj has a fog light switch too.

Not to get off-topic, but...

If you grab that wiper/fog light switch panel and the driver's window/lock switch panel I'll pay for them and shipping to me. Those tweeter panels in the doors would be neat-o too.

Judging by the Dash panels thats is a 97+ XJ so it quite possibly could be a NV3500 :dunno:

 

It's a 99.

Why? the NV3550 is just as good as an ax15

More headaches. :wall:

 

Picked up the AX-15, 231, Dana 30 and the front drive shaft. That's what I asked for. They ended up adding the external slave, the bell housing, an additional diagonal cross member, and the rear drive shaft. The hose looked like a b*@$£ to get out, so I went looking and found one that looks the same from a YJ that was smashed to SMITHEREENS. In fact that hose was probably the only good thing left on the YJ. He asked for $600 for it all, I took my whole paycheck, extra cash, and $160 I got from scrap that morning (a GM 14 bolt and a GM 10 bolt, a NP208, a Dana 300, and some odd pieces of metal) and after all that I only had $580. He let me slide, I told him I would give him the $20 next time I was up. I plan on going there again for some bucket seats for the Manche, and in the spring, a set of Dana 44's. After all this, then I will look at getting a front and rear beefy bumpers, and a winch. I would like to set my truck up to pull people out of ditches in the winters here. Easy money. (I know about blah blah liability, I will inform them at the time that what happens happens, I'll even print up a release) This is all with no lift, and maybe one will go on in the spring with the 44's.
