    WJ axles and T-case on an XJ?

    Converting a 94 XJ 2wd and thinking of buy a 2001 WJ and putting the AD44 and Tcase on my XJ, seems like a cheap and time consuming exercise in trouble shooting. Any help out there on any inside information on something stupid like this?

    Not sure if the merging helped?

    My personal opinion is it seems like a waste of time. You are going to have to grind all of the brackets off anyways and weld on new ones. I would go with a Ford 8.8 or a 9 inch rear and throw C gussets on the front Dana 30 and call it a day. Run 35's for 100k and you be fine. The Ford 9 inch has much better aftermarket potential but the 8.8 from 95-present is much easier to get ahold of. Plus 4 wheel disc brakes.

    I can buy a blown engine WJ for 500 bucks, I don’t mind the fabrication aspect, I need a Tcase, bigger axles, and electronic seats, seems like WJ is my cheapest beat for all three. But I keep hearing the AD44 axles are not great off the WJ, but for the price I don’t mind limited locker aftermarket options. I am however concerned that the Tcase is quadratic and may have a computer system involved? Not sure if it dose? But of course not thrilled about introducing a computer controlled system into a non computerized XJ

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.
