Re: overdrive

But there is a company making bolt on electric OD's for AMC cased 727's. I just dont know it's name. I saw it in an AMX magazine.

Re: overdrive

but is it cost effective?

I doubt it, most of those ad on over/underdrives are $1800+, then figure in driveshaft mods.

have to be ALOT of drivin to recoup that small gain.

and in 91 most of the Gwags had 2.72:1 gear ratios, I cant imagine the engine would be making enough power at the low rpms that+ an OD would creat to push its brick like self down the HIway!

thats just the bane of teh Full Sized Jeep owner, bad fuel economy.

Re: overdrive

you could buy the AA adapter plate and Flexplate for AM engine to GM transmission and get a 700R4, and make the case fit.
