I this the one out of the Scrambler?  Are you going from a 4.2 to 4.0?  What's the difference?  Will your replacement just bolt up or will you need adapters?  Did I read you also have an Atlas to go in?

The 4.2 will come out. This 4.0 will go in. It has the aw4 (with overdrive) and the t-case, but I won’t be using the t case. While it is not an atlas, I did just install a dana 300 with 4-1 and twins sticks. So I want to keep that in the Scrambler. So now I need to find some important things like a wiring harness and ecu for this 4.0. Supposedly it is an easy swap. We will see. I have a lot to read so that I am prepared.

Scott (Crazyskier92) may have an ECU and the wiring for it since he parts out a lot of TJs.

I was thinking of reaching out to Scott. Thanks

Put the Sniper stuff on it and let it run it.

You planning to run the the auto trans?  I've got a 98 AT ECU laying around that you are welcome to.  Many years ago I swapped a 99 4.0 into my CJ-7 and it was a huge improvement over the carbed 4.2.  You won't be disappointed.

Um. Yes. I would love to have the ECU. Thanks.

It is in Warrenton off 29 close to Effees or I can bring it with me to Herndon when I go to work.  I still have the motor and wiring harness if you are considering adapting it to your current harness and want to look at it for ideas.

PM me and we can set something up.

I've been a little busy...

A couple weekends ago I upgraded to a Durango Power Steering box.  Last weekend I installed Poison Spyder hood louvers.  This weekend LED headlights and a dual coolant switch in prep for a taurus fan.

Did you get the TCU for the trans ? Need that too and it must match the year of the trans.

Had new brakes put on.  Watched my friend Willie snap a bolt on the caliper housing!  Ugh!  Thank goodness they had some spares on hand!

Stared at it wondering how in the hell the track bar bolt and sway bar disconnect pin went MIA and when it happened.  Dunno?

Fixed the damage from wheeling it a little harder at Chaos on Labor Day weekend.

 - replaced 2 broken grease fittings on the drive shafts
 - replaced torn front driveshaft grease collar
 - replaced busted front yoke
 - ground and painted all rock damage on frame, control arm brackets, and differentials
 - greased all steering and driveshaft fittings

Still on the list to fix, a steering problem. Turning the 35" tires and beadlocks on the rocks is inconsistent and sometimes problematic.
