Front Driveshaft Conversion

I've tried over the past week or so to get the tech article - Front Driveshaft Conversion to come up but it wants me to sign in even though I already am.... and it won't accept my login. So could someone PM me a copy of that article (By Ghost) I have the yoke coming from Georgia Mike, I just need to see what else I might need and for sure which driveshaft I need for sure.

You must not be a member! Some of the articles are a part of the Members area or something. Which tranny do you have?

5 spd., Y'all told me it couldn't be the ba10/5, but frankly I've not had a chance to crawl under it and check for sure if it's a ba10/5, T5, or AX-5, since it's been muddy for a month, and it's at the welders right now to get the rear frame horns replaced so I can't check right now.

BTW: I thought I was a member, registered and it lets me post here.... is there more? Am I not official until I post x# of times? I had been registered before like a year ago but for some reason I had to reregister back in may.

I would highly recomend joining. It is a great club with great people. The only tranny I have ever seen in a 84-86 is the AX-5. However, there are some XJ's with the T-5 out there. Basically you will need a DC shaft from a 4 popper 5 speed XJ. Unless you want a custome length like me and got a AW-4 shaft cut down to length!

Most of them are from up near Mt Carmel (pretty close to tower city PA), one or 2 might have been down at big dogs. You have a page up for your XJ? Do you belong to a Club Yet? I'm with CV4W and we have a good many fairly close by (within 100 miles or so) places to wheel.
Enough here... I'll PM ya.

I ran by and checked today, 1 piece case so I'm pretty sure it has to be a AX-5 now. And now I know why 4wd won't work...the driveshaft is gone!!! only thing there is a stub at the tcase end. Any year or range of years better than others?
Thanks,
Mike B.
BTW: I'll go join up.... didn't have a clue about that till y'all told me.

The T-5 is a one piece case too. There is a top cover on the T-5 where as the AX-5 bolts together to an intermediate plate. I'll see if I can find a picture of one. The AX-5 has ribs on the case too. I cannot remember what the Case of the T-5 looks like. I just know it when I see it!

Oh, I just got it and don't have tags on it yet. It's one of those PO things, he did a few strange things that I need to fix before inspection yet, like putting a cat back on it and fixing the rest of the exhaust, put a smog pump on and a lot of little things like that.

Well it looks like a lot like a 10/5, but the case is one piece. The picture here isn't very good - http://www.off-road.com/jeep/tech/trans/ and really doesn't show the passenger side so I can see if it has that brass drain plug that uses a torx bit that I did notice on mine. The shifter has a bit of an s shape to it and a rubber boot down at the top of the tranny, which isn't shown well either.
