Well for just being the average garage mechanic I finally got my tub swapped out and started up my jeep for the first time in over a month. I must say I am pround of myself that I didn't have anyones help (except for a few kind souls on here that gave me some helpful advice) putting it together. If it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have gained the knowledge I needed to do this. I still have to hook up the heater box controls, bolt in the seats and the roll bar, and find a rear tailgate, but it is at least running. My tranny (TF 904 or 999) is leaking more than it was before I cleaned up the underside. I think all the mud that was packed up around the pan and linkage was keeping it from leaking. Do you have to have a lifted vehicle to put a 727 in??? Do you need any special adaptors or not since I already have an auto. Just wondering since I had access to one at a decent cost. The motor will be the next project. I'm putting off painting it since I wanted to get all the mechanicals out of the way. It will just have to be black and maroon for awhile!!! I am going to herculine the tub in the next few weeks though. I have a Motorcraft 2100 sitting on the bench that I need to order an adaptor plate for. That damn computer controlled junk it has on it sucks! Thanks for everyones help!!!

Congrats! There are front driveshaft clearance issues with the 727's pan that are mitigated with a suspension lift. You'll need the 727 from an 80's Wagoneer with part-time 4WD.
