    It definitely was easier removing the cross member, well kind of. Couldn’t get an angle with it on. Forgot how much a pain it is with the evo skids. My cross memeber skid is bent and twisted. But got the tcase in. No do figure out how to switch the gear ration with the traildash 2

    I have a 14jk automatic. I did this swap a few years ago. Sorry to tell you this but the td2 does not have the option to program the transfer case gear ratio. I talked with Superchips on numerous occasions to see how to do it. Only way was to buy a flashcal and use it in conjunction with the trail dash 2. I tried it every way they told me to program the settings together and it would work but when in 4low my jeep would go in limp mode at random times. It would work for 100 miles or 3 miles sometimes. I’d have to wipe out all of my settings and reprogram and hope for the best. I called motech in Vegas where I purchased the tcase and he told me that everyone was having problems with Superchips and the swap. Said to sell the Superchips and buy an aev procal. I did just that and so far not one issue. I don’t know if anything has changed since then but sharing my experience with you to hopefully save you some grief.

    I’m not sure, but I think I got it set up as a rubicon. I tested it and had no problems so far. But have read the same thing that everyone uses a pro cal. I just like the dash for the trans temp and everything else.

    On the topic of the trans jack and cross member, I left my cross member in and it wasnt that big if a deal. Easier without it I'm sure but I don't remember thinking damn I really wish I took it out.

    And lifting it into place solo took me a few hours of trial and error and in the end I just rolled it up on my chest bench pressed it up in there stuffed my leg up in there to hold it so I could turn the yoke and eventually it went in. Not the smartest or safest way but it worked if you don't want to spend any money. But a cheap HF tranny jack or build a 2x4 frame for your floor jack is worth it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
