NEW AND IMPROVED 2004 grand cherokee limited with selec trac trans case

Here is what i said i was gonna do turned out great this is my 2004 grand cherokee thats fully loaded with the 4.7 ltr HO motor has a np 242 HD select trac transfer case to make easier making a list of what it has

-6" Clayton long arm lift
-bilstein shocks
-jks quick disconnects
-tom woods transfer case tailshaft conversion kit
-tom woods rear driveshaft
-mickey tohmpson classic II rims 15"
-35x12.50 mastercraft tires
-spydertrack wheel spacers 5x5 to 5x5.5


I was weary of using the bb with this lift kit just pulled out the rubber were spring sits and installed bb i beliuve i got about 7" of lift or so.....also was very weary of using spydertrac wheel spacers they are surfaced to geometerically fit on brake rotor ....jeep turned out wonderful i think its bad ass and theres more to come but thats gonna be awhile ive got about 6K with all ive done to it got couple things left i have for it ill post i told everyone id post pics during complete build but do to im better at turning wrenches than operating cameras aparently they didnt take i pressed button but was later told after i got home and we was done when i found out i only got a couple pics of build i do have one with axle dropped i was very disappointed that they didnt take i pressed button but friend told me u have to hold it till the camera focuses then it takes pic so heres some pics of it i had alot of fun with this build learned alot thank to everyone for all info that everyone puts about ur jeep i learned tons of stuff tore down my first transfer case and put back together and it sucessfully works .

The build started on friday and ended on saturday 5/20/11 - 5/21/11
Built by : Me,J.Smith of OHIO, and my brother

Looks great! IMO I would buy some AEV Wheels, it will give it a nice stance too!

Was yours a Quadradrive? I'd love to do this swap but I'm curious as to how the 242 and the vari-locks would play together.

Re: NEW AND IMPROVED 2004 grand cherokee limited with selec trac trans case

I'm a big fan of the 242, most guys like the 231 better but I think its hard to beat the 242 for general use(especially if you don't need a 4:1 kit or the extra strength of the 231).

Now if only Jeep had offered the AW4 in the WJ and TJ.........

Today 5/26/11 was first day of actually driving my jeep i got my rear tom wood driveshaft in it didnt seem to have any driveline vib. if it did it would been minor and came from front ran out of money on build it seems to be doing well with the stock axles and i read some forums saying theyre pretty good axles and hold up good but then also read oposite opinions on em.....anyone actually tell me more on em and how they do with my jeep having 35" tires and i refuse to go smaller....ive been told the vari lock is basically a locker ....limited slip

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


i added a couple of things since monday it now has

-rough country dual stabilizer kit
-new rear tail lights (aftermarket)

-next week- im installing a westin safari bumper with two 6" offroad lights and gonna sand, prime, and paint the undercarriage minus the lift kit and coils


-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Today seem good as far as driveline vib. ....susp was kinda rough andcould be its a new susp. and also i think bb is making it quite rough ride also ....im gonna get 4 new rubber spring seats to put under over the bb to help sofen it up some im thinking they may have suppose to stay the susp isnt going anywhere ist all together correctly bb just making it rough ride but do not want to remove em im gonna make it as smooth as i can by getting new spring seats probally help

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

anyone with anything that can help on anything love learning new things please give me some feedback i welcome ideas and knowlege


CAN ANYBODY GIVE ME SOME IDEAS ON EXHAUST WHATS A GOOD TONE BUT LOUD JUST NOT TO LOUD IM JUST REPLACING FROM BEHIND CAT......i was thinking about 40 series flowmaster and possibly maybe dual it out in rear not sure be cool but mine will exit out the corner and ill take em up behind bumper and hve tips some out in left and right bumper corners think it would look nice iot will stay as single pipe not true dualing it and not cutting cats off dont wanna take back pressure off motor and wanna try and get the best fuel economy i can get lol use to get about 16-20 now im getting about 15-16 max....i wanna get k+n just broke
