So... Bad ideas formulating in a massive way

02 Jeep Wrangler, 84k mi, 5 mt, 4” lift, 35” tires, 4.0L I6, bumpers, winch, flat fenders...

Similar to this...

The bad; ball joints are on the way out, one CV is clicking at lock, oil pan has a small leak at the seal, and finally, grinds into 2nd.

The ball joints and CV arent a big deal, I can do those. Same with the pan seal. The trans is more than likely a synchro, or possibly the clutch. either way, I hate trans work. it would probably cost around $1,000 to have the trans rebuilt. I can buy a brand new one and do a swap for $1500, or find a used one, but it would have to come with a warranty, and LKQ (my preferred used parts vendor) does not have any in my area.

$7,800 out the door.
