I'm using a National Bearing FC-69907 bearing, which is an actual bearing as opposed to a bushing as used on the earlier CJs. Cost me about $15. I'm also using the 4.0 flywheel and will have it match balanced with the AMC 360 flexplate. Hendrick Motorsport is nearby, and they charge $75 to do that. As to the transfer case, I'm using the NP231 that is currently mounted to the AX15, although I will be installing a slip yoke eliminator on it.


Thats really good info Ernie, thanks!

Is the AX15 a Drivers side transfer case, or is it a passenger side like my T18? Can you just re-clock the transfer case so that it is a passenger side drop?
