Re: World Class T4 Trans
I've thought about the T18 ford swap, but here's my situation. The trany that's in the CJ now is an SR4. Go figure, all the lit says it should be a T4, but the case markings put it at an SR4. I read all the stuff I can get my hands on about the Ford T18 trans swap and what I read was I will need a new bellhousing along with the adapter for the Dana300. When I do the math, it comes out to be quit a bit more. As much as I would like to do that swap, cost wise, the pockets aren't that deep and the CJ is the only means of transpo for the wife and I. That leads to the next problem. When I scrape together the dough for this, it needs to be a weekend project.
The alternative, is wait about a year, hope the stock trany hangs together that long (doubt it)and I get another driver for the wife and I. At that point, I can probably do the T18 swap because I won't need to depend on the CJ for daily use.
As for the T5 OD option, I would probably opt for that because for now, the rig makes frequent drives back home to Colorado.
Thanks for the info guys, it is truly appreciated.
