Sounds like the guy has enough problems, possibly going back to jail, passed out while driving it and hit a ditch etc.

Re: Project CRD MJ is born:

Bought this NV3550 for my MJ today for $550:


As you can see the bellhousing is broken so I got him down by $50, its the wrong bellhousing for me anyways, pictured next to it is the correct bellhousing for the CRD engine.

Re: Project CRD MJ is born:

MJ gets some new shoes:




Got em for $300 locally, wheels are just about perfect, nar a scratch on them....for now.


Got the master/slave combo out of a 96 today, gonna go back on sunday and grab a NP242.

Here you can see the difference between the 4Liter bellhousing and the CRD bellhousing:


Got the master/slave, plus a bunch of other junk for $26.

Re: Project CRD MJ is born:

Got in my indicator lights, APPS, and ECU.

I only need a new injector top and some diesel before I can start this sucker up!

$800 for the MJ, $700 for the engine, $200 for the ECU and APPS. $300 for the 2500 front end. $550 for the tranny, another $75 for the transfer case tomorrow and $300 for the wheels.

So right now, a little over $2900 so far. Stuff ads up quick.

Not quick enough.

Got me a transfer case out of a 98 today, paid $100 also got the wheel skid plate, and power seat pedistal for a grand total of $130. Not too shabby, I should told him it was out of a 94 and then it would have been $75.

Lotsa junk in my garage:


All bolted together:







Slave mocked up:



A limited lace wheel and transfer skid:

I actually spent quite a bit of time scrubbing away this evening, I might work on it more, but most of whats left is oxidation stuff on there.
