I've never ran into a misfire caused by a leaking manifold in this platform. Misfires from plugged cats from leaking manifolds. But didn't you gut the cats?

If you need to use a scanner let me know.
I have my Snap-On Solus here. No issue with you needed to use it.

Getting closer to coming out. Plan to pull intake to make it easier to unhook all the stuff in back of it. Should also make it easier to chain up and pull the power train.

Go to harbor freight and buy a carb lift plate if u oval out the two back holes it lines up to the bolts on the valley plate. Makes it super easy to lift.

Last night I bought some used 2.5x14 Fox Air Shocks. It looks like the Wagoneer is going to return to the bottom of the list to get worked on.

Next up is to figure out how much tube I think I need build a buggy...

6.0/4L80E/NP205
05+ Super Duty D60
2.5x14 Fox Air Shocks

I'll continue watching for 39 red Krawlers and beadlocks, and the million other small parts.

Rear axle will either be 14-bolt, 10.25, or re-use 60 hubs and build a full-float 9".

Fox 2.5x14 air shocks I bought used off pirate4x4 showed up over the weekend. They look to be in good shape. Obviously not from Michigan.

I spent some time looking at np205 to 4L80E mounting. Finally found what I was looking for tonight.

From what I can gather, the 4L80E/NP208 (and/or np241) have cast iron adapter. My adapter is aluminum but based on internet measurements of the cast iron, I think they are the same thickness; or I may need want/need a clocking ring. I think what I'll do is buy the short input and clocking ring and see where I land.

I priced out an Atlas and it's $2500 before shipping, so I feel I have some budget to play with before I kick myself for not going that route.

Awww I was hoping to see this finished! I remember the first time you did a build on it.....when misfits was a busy site! We've all been there....project car hell.....SQUIRREL!

Excuse my ignorance, I have not researched 4l80 swaps but wouldn't a th400 208 adapter be the same as a 4l80/241?

The one I have seems similar in size, but it's aluminum and has some lightness added.

Good bit more money, but take a look at a Hero case with an offset rear output and then build that 609 rear you mentioned. Then you'd have both diffs tucked in by the tires and have the drive shafts protected. Plus you wouldn't ever have to worry about the tcase its self.

They don't list it on their site, but mention it here. Post 17

I'll stick with my 205. If I hate the 2:1 then I'll start saving for an Atlas.

Put the 60 on the stand and started the strip down. I grabbed a front cover and 14 bolt shave during an Easter sale, so I set it on to take a look.
