      K-Hawk, if that is a '96 Jeep Grand Cherokee you have.......it is a unibody vehicle, and does not have a separate frame.

        Just stuff the corner of a big bath towel into the rear drainback hole before you start.
        (to keep crud out of the crankcase).
        Scrape, and swab, and wipe the valley using the same towel.
        (It's too big to go down the hole, and too big to accidentally leave behind

            I have a friend putting his 1953 Stude pickup on a Ford Escape chassis.... no vital measurements more than 1/2" from the Stude was his report. There are a lot of electronics to hide in the Stude dash though.
            When he is done, he will have 4wd, cruise, air, tilt wheel, and all the luxuries that Stude should have has in 1953!

                    I seen a 50 Studebaker pick up in Utah that was put on a 1979 Jeep Wagoneer 4 wheel drive. And a Lark put on a Jeep frame 4 wheel drive in Colorado. I have a picture of the Lark some where.
