Please help with 2000 TJ
A little history about my problem first: when I ordered my 2000 TJ, we ordered the Dana 44 rear end. The dealer came back and said that we couldn't get a 44 with auto transmission. I told them they were wrong, they said they checked again and that no, I couldn't do it. In then end I got a Dana 35 that will need to be upgraded. I recently called Chrysler Canada and confirmed with them that the Dana 44 was available with auto transmission and that I should have been able to order it, however, they say I need to take this up with the selling dealer. The dealer insists they were right.
Here's is where I'm hoping for some help from the Jeeping community. I have spoken/e-mailed with several people that have 2000 TJs with automatic and dana 44, so I know they're out there. I am hoping that anybody that has this set up can e-mail me, and include other options (ie 30" tires, trac-lock, etc) so that I can take a stack of papers to the dealer supporting me. I figure the more paper I can show them the better chance I have of making them realize they made a mistake, and then I can ask/demand that they sell the 44 for the price difference between a 35 and 44 and that they install it for me, which I think is reasonable.
Thanks in advance for helping me with this. Please pass this message on to anybody else you know that has a 2000 TJ.
