She's back!!! After a lot of part hunting and a shitload of cussing I got her back together and on the road! The deep aluminum pan I put on took a LOT of mods to make it work with my tummy tuck, but man was it worth it. She drives fantastic!! You can definitely feel the difference in the way the transmission behaves. Again I am beat after a day of wrestling with the beast. I will post some more updates after I get some rest.

You went DEEP I hope you don’t rub that thing off in a rock,or does your engine skid cover it?

Holy crap guys!!

The Jeep was running absolutely flawless for the first 150 miles then all the sudden the Jeep just shuts off on my 4 mile trip to work and refused to start again. I know there are only a few things that can make the Jeep up and die so I went and got myself a new CPS. Unfortunately because my engine is lifted and at a stange angle because of the tummy tuck the CPS will not come out without hitting the flange between the firewall and trans tunnel. FML, after an hour of bending cussing and contorting I got the new sensor installed and the Jeep fired right up. Took it the rest of the way to work and everything was fine.
After work I got about a 1/4 mile down the road the Jeep stumbled then shut off again and wouldn't start. Waited about 20 minutes and she fired back up but would just stumble in gear and die.
So after a shitload of troubleshooting (i can provide details if wanted) I found out that not only did my CPS die but my distributor bushing was tossed, the shaft was wobbling side to side enough to put a huge grove in the post on the cap. It also caused a nasty misfire once warmed up and ONLY in forward drive gears. ( fucking strange I know) Replaced the distributor and she runs like a top again. What a nightmare after all the transmission work, talk about a buzz kill.

Even though it’s obvious, you sit there and wonder if it’s from the work you’ve done.

After I did the transmission swap on mine, any little noise or stumble that came up worried me to high heaven and back. “Is this it? Is this the fruit of my labor and amateur work?!”

Dude 100%!!! I knew it couldn't be related but I just couldn't get the thought of pulling the trans out of my head. So glad it was just really bad timing for the distributor to fail.

Glad you got it all figured out and running well. It's a great feeling.

This is me, every time I touch anything.
