Ok so I just acquired a 79 DJ5 for my wife's paper delivery route. it has the Audi 4 cyl and 3 peed auto. The obvious mods are the CJ5 grill, but when I looked for a conversion to 4x4 on this sight I saw nothing!!?? I don't think I would make it an extreme crawler but it sure would be fun in my opinion to have a 4x4 delivery. I was just curious what everyone else thinks of this prospect?

IIRC, you will need a tranny, transfer case, axle, driveshafts (rear could be shortened), and all attached linkages.

I found a Dana 30 front from a CJ, a Dana 20 with divorced slip yoke and the rig came with a spare drive shaft, that would leave getting a short drive shaft between the tranny xfer case and that's all. Not counting the cost to modify the shafts and sourcing all the parts off my local craigslist i can achieve this for less than 250 dollars. I was curious if there was any interest in this odd ball rig or if I'm alone in thinking this is cool?

DIvorced t-case ain't gonna give you much, if any, in the way of a rear d-shaft.
