    This is my 98 grand cherokee. It has a cummins 3.9 4bta engine and I used an A518 automatic transmission out of an early dodge truck, NP231 transfercase, dana 44A rear, 30 front. I had to use a long arm kit for the front to clear the starter and oil pan, so I chose a clayton's long arm 7" lift kit. I'm running 315-75-16 tires, and i've put about 2500 miles on it so far, and it works pretty nice. It has good power, and I've towed a 5000 pound car trailer around and it does just fine. It gets about 26mpg mixed driving on 35's .

    I plan to upgrade the axles pretty soon, and I'm going to replace the transmission with a NV4500. I don't know what i'm going to do for axles yet. I'll probably go with 44's out of a wagoneer. I expect the fuel economy to go up to 28-30mpg on the highway with lockout hubs and the manual transmission

    Here are some pictures

    I am considering 1 tons, but I don't need them for what I do with it.

    You must have asked questions in the closing hours of the auction. I answered every question up until the last 12 hours or so. I wasn't very seroius about selling it, I only considered it to see if it was worth starting from scratch before I swap axles and a 5 speed transmission. You can PM me, or post here if you have any questions. I would be happy to answer them.

    Yup, the engine is out of an old bread truck. The hole in the fender was for the snorkel when I had the v8 engine.

    Very cool build. Did you figure out a way around the inspection? If not, I have an idea for you that worked on an old BMW I restored (NY State).

    The car sat so long that when I brought it in for emissions inspection, it failed due to the half-bad gas. I knew all it needed was to run a tank or so through the engine and get fresh gas. Anyway, I tinkered with it a bit, and had a local shop set the idle air mixture as best they could and replace the TPS, as the idle had been a bit unstable. I brought it back a few days later to try passing again. But I still failed, (still had the bad gas). The inspection shop, asked if I had a receipt for the repairs, and proceeded to give me a valid sticker....without ever passing emissions. Apparantly there is a loophole for vehicles that fail, and then you spend money to try to fix them. The sticker they gave me was a little different, but still 100% valid. Anyway, at the next inspection the bimmer produced almost no measurable emmissions, so I never needed to repeat this process.

    Maybe a cooperative shop can give you one of those "attempted fix" stickers.
