So the a4ld on my 93 was gettin tired, and i didnt feel like messin with it, and the engine needed a rebuild too soon, so i found a great deal on a 2 door 1994 X, 4x4 of course, with a 5spd, and maual tcase!
i got it for 1k, and its in really great shape.
i am now workin on swappin everythin i put in the 93, over to the 94.
as of now ive swapped the intake.
and then i did a flush of all fluids, tranny, oil, tcase, and diffs.
coolant is next.then i will do the tires, and stereo system, then brakes/ bearings.
im pretty excited about the new truck.
we got a boat and i figured this would handle it better than a bad auto tranny.
and the interior of this truck is in way better shape.
and im thinkin i will get better mileage now, since its a 5spd, and 2dr.

i will post some pics of it soon, photobucket is down right now.
and i plan to do some mods soon hopefully.

17' bayliner.
it only has to be towed 60 miles to the lake at the start of the summer, then the 5 miles form storage to the lake during, and then back home in the winter.

so its not gonna see tons of towing miles.

i figure it should handle it ok.
especially if i use 4x4 low range when comin up the load ramp, and just go straight, then when its flat, go back to 2x4.

i also plan to do an add-a-leaf to stiffen the reaf leafs for towin.

Also, now you can take the tranny out of the old truck and rebuild it yourself and then sell the truck. :D
