Hi, I'm new to the JK Owners forum. I had a 4wd TJ and was able to pick up a 2wd JK for a really, really good price. So after looking around and seeing some good posts, I decided to buy the 2wd and do the conversion. I'm not really going to be going off road, but it would be much easier pulling my jet skis, trailer, etc up the hill in my back yard with 4wd. I saw some really helpful posts, but I don't really think one outlined exactly what parts were needed. From what I can tell, it looks like I would at least need the following:
Tail shaft housing
A shorter adapter for the housing
Does this cover it? Since I'm not doing any off roading like a lot of people do, I'm fine with using used JK parts, unless there's something that is a good upgrade for around the same price. Also, it's a AT. Yes, I know, somebody buying an AT 2wd Jeep is a sin, but the AT for dealing with all the traffic here in Atlanta and I'm hoping to change the 2wd situation. I tried looking at some used prices for some of the parts, but I wasn't really sure how the parts matched up to what I was finding. What can I expected to roughly pay (or what would be reasonable) to pay for these parts? Thanks and I'd appreciate any help!
