there were 2 different manual transmissions in the 89' wranglers. the piece of shit peuogot (ba-10) and the slightly better ax-15. for identification purposes the ba-10 will be split lengthwise.

the stock carter carbs are ridiculous. throw a motorcraft 2100 on it (1.08 venturis).

Very quick and overgeneralized assessment of late 80's Wranglers:

1. Remove the entire powertrain and axles and discard in whatever way pleases you.
2. Install the complete powertrain and axles from a late 80's Grand Wagoneer or late 70's Ford 1/2t truck.

Very nice build platforms, though.

Thats what Im hoping to do, I have 2 D60's Im going to get from a friend. I think Im going to start with the axles, gears and suspension first seeing that I have the D60's available. The jeep has a newer 4.2 I6 the guy just put in so I hoping with bigger gears I can get away with some big tires until I update the drivetrain. As soon as I sell my built F-250 truck I will have a few bucks to put into the jeeps drivetrain. It seems from what I read that some guys build up there I6's and run them in there rigs, is this not the case. Thanks again

First, that's a very nice friend. The number one 87-95 Wrangler problem is the axles. Sounds like you have that solved.

The 4.2 is a good motor, but as mentioned earlier needs a different carb or a FI setup in its Wrangler inception to avoid headaches.

You'd probably have the AX15, then, which should handle the 4.2 well enough. The NP231 at most would want a slip yoke eliminator.

I just talked to my neighbor today who has a CJ7 that he swaped a 302 and trans into the jeep with a D300 T-case,it all must still be wired up but Im thinking of going this route. The engine/trans is brand new, plus it is a really clean jeep all grade 8 bolts throughout, poly bushing, SS brake lines etc. I could get it for $4500.00 as it sit what ya think? He has all the computers wire harness for the motor and trans. Just and idea.
