Just a thought..

Is it possible to take the 4.0, AW4 and , 231 from a Cherokee and place it in my Eagle? And what sort of mods would I need to make? I like a manual but I need to get my Eagle moving.

Pretty sure it's been done. I think the problem is you'll need to make new mounts for the AW4 tranny and I believe you might also need to have custom driveshafts made. Someone else I'm sure will chime in with more useful information.

I was pretty sure it has been done also, and may be a really good option for what I have currently.
I think I can get a mount fabricated up and then worry about the rest..

It's been done by somebody but tranny mount would probably need attention along with the driveshafts as previously stated.

Another thing I'd be concerned about would be the gearing. Eagles have some tall gears that would rule out OD until at least 75mph.

Gears are a concern. Has 2.73's if everything I see is correct. Been tempted to put the XJ's rear axle under it with 3.55's. Then see about gearing the front.

3.55's would be perfect for the AW4. I currently have 3.07's with my AW4 swap and it doesn't liket o be in OD unless I'm 75+ mph. 3.55's are on my to do list.

If you're doing the whole drivetrain, I think I remember the following has to be done :

-fuel pump
-solid front axle swap to keep front and rear axles matching for gearing (and a lift). I think the newer 242 i6 will mount onto the current axle though. Or find a SX4 and swipe the gears.
-engine mounts
-transmission mounts (some may fit in)
-exhaust modifications - current pipe will need to be changed iirc
-driveshaft shortened
-cuts in floor for 4wd shifter

When I decide to do some swapping, I think I might swap in a 242, its more in the spirit of the Eagle.

I have also seen an issue where the intake won't clear my brake booster if I use a HO head? Is that true or fixable?
Swappable to another booster?

Not going to SAS Kammy. The 95 should have the mounting boss front axle can get geared to 3.54 and match the rear at least good enough to work..

Reason I brought up the solid front axle is that everything will be out of the vehicle, and it would be a great time to make the change.

As far as the brake booster goes, I don't see how the throttle body would get in the way, it's MUCH more narrow than the carb is on the current 258 engine so it shouldn't hit at all.

I've heard the intake manifold may interfere with the booster, but I've seen the 91-98 intake installed on an Eagle. You can go with a 99-06 intake for more clearance. SAS is not necessary.
