I love my tj but I can't sleep in it and I can't fit the fam in it anymore.

I've been contemplating swapping my drivetrain into an xj. I already had a sick xj but the custom ness of it fucked my life up.

I'd wanna swap my axles, atlas, York, and winch mostly.

It'd have to be a 5speed and after I swap everything the tj would still be worth 6grand ish....


I don't really wanna do the work and would like a rig with a frame but I really trust my drivetrain and love my winch and York.

I've had two tempting offers of 15k for my tj but couldn't sell. It'd cost 18k + to build it again

A 3rd gen 3.4l manual 4runner would be nice but it'd be a big project to get it truly trailworthy.... Straightaxled, dual cases etc

Dude, sbs don't be an idiot. The two seater tj keeps the kids from ruining a great time.

Jst keep quiet about the stripper riding shotgun because mom had to stay home with the brats

don't. 

there is so much more you will need to do than just swapping your drivetrain... unless it's just
for fire road camping.

I need to stop starting new project... I'd get a lot more done.
