Re: Has anyone converted a 2wd Grand to a 4WD

Ok guys kinda new at this jeep thing so I dont know a whole lot about them. I recently bought a 94 grand cherokee 2wd with the 4.0 litre. Found a 93 with a 6 inch lift lockers and 4wd but with awd transfer caee. However I have no title for it and its just a buggie. I stripped it and am putting all the 4wd parts on the 2wd. So I got everything swapped tranny in driveline in its all done however I had to change the whole engine harness due to the different tranny. Went from 44re to aw4. Well now it wont start...changed the ecu with the harness and the control module under the dash...however where the other long plug plugs in on the left side the new harness has one extra wire do I have to change the dash harness as well or what?and why would I not be getting fire? Someone please help

The GCs you are dealing with are ZJs and you have posted in the WJ section. I would suggest posting in the ZJ section to get better help. The ZJ was made from 1993-1998.

But driveshafts can be made usually for a decent price.

The search begins! I will keep you posted.

Thanks Brian
If you are around Birmingham, would the folks at Hesco be able to steer you in a good direction?

I'd honestly think the best tactic would be to trade for a 4x4 version if you like the 4.0 [or a stroker 4.0], but then if you weren't just a tad nuts, you wouldn't be driving a Jeep.

I believe someone here did do it, you'd have to search the posts though
