I've got a stock AX-15 5spd Jeep Trans attached to the OM617 via an adapter from Doomsday Diesel. There is another Adapter kit on the market that I ran before the Doomsday Diesel kit, and it was absolute junk. The Doomsday Kit is the only one worth buying that won't cause issues!Can you provide more details on the swap? I currently have the same setup sitting in the garage. Can you show the throttle bracket? What did you do for the transmission? Are you using the AW4 if so are you using something like a radesign shifter? Did you get the factory gauges to work?
Welcome to the neighborhood. I grew up in Prescott, currently live up the road in camp verde/rimrock area by Montezuma's well. Hope to see you out there on the trails one day. Would love to see your XJ. I can honestly say your youtube video was the inspiration behind my recent XJ purchase.Hey everyone! Just thought I’d stop by the thread really quick for an update!
I moved out to Prescott, Arizona back in early February for a new job within the Overland Community. I drove the XJ 2,100miles from VA to AZ over 3 days, and the Mercedes Turbo-Diesel ran flawless, and continues to!
I move into my new house this weekend and I’ve got a bunch of projects to do on the XJ, so I’ll make sure to keep this thread updated!
Here’s a recent shot from here in AZ:

How's that JCR roof rack?Thanks so much everyone! It's been a little over 5 years since I started this thread on 10/16/15, wow!
Here's a couple pics of the XJ from a couple of days ago! I recently sold my Roofnest Hardshell RTT and went with a new JCR Offroad Roof Rack.
My new focus is making the Jeep as light and efficient as possible!
The Mercedes Turbo-Diesel is still running fantastic, and is getting some BIG Power goodies soon!
