already found a manual transfer case at local junkyard for $150. tempted to drop it in the car just to get rid of the wires.
talking to a other member on a different board about getting a M50D - mainly as a preventive measure.
picked up a Smittybilt XCR8 winch for $299,winch plate, 48" hi-lift jack. going to try and get the winch plate and winch in tomorrow.

rear looks to be factory as it has the tag on it. unsure on front. I need to email the previous owner
Found a Airbox with MAS out of a 96 SOHC 4.0 and bought it . Unfortunately realized that the MAS Sensor is a two prong on the 96. Going to return it and get one off a 96 2.3 that has the better MAS sensor. Already bought the Spectre Air Filter adapter, have a couple of 3" filters sitting around from previous projects.
Will mock it all up and see if i like it. Might just modify the stock air box to do the cowl induction
