Hoses acquired and installed. Fuel sender parts updated too. Drive shafts installed but noticed one of the u-bolt straps is stripped.

The donor truck, had it been 4WD, what transfer case would it have had? Being a GM IFS truck it would be LHD, but perhaps in danger of being too large to fit under the Cherokee.

I had a '79 Chief for a short while. It was too rusty to save, rode like a tank, drank fuel like a tank, but I loved that truck.

@cruiserinsanity I need to replace the TPS and splice it into the new transmission controller. Unfortunately she's still on the lift at the moment. Hoping to get back into it after the holidays.

Well, on Saturday I was able to move all the other truck/car parts that had accumulated under the truck while on the lift. Once I got her back down to ground level, I located the TPS and with the help of a wiring diagram identified the proper signal (blue) and ground wires.

Wiring harness from the 6L80E processor. Yellow/blk stripe goes to blue, black/wh stripe goes to black.

Reloomed, hangs over the air intake mani and attaches to firewall.

Found some other things that need addressing before firing her up. The gas tank vent lines are still factory and just come out as two rubber lines up the firewall near the heater core. Gotta be a better way to terminate those. They did go into a Y connector that ended in a single rubber hose. The ends of all of them were gummy and falling apart. I removed the Y and trimmed them back to cleaner ends. Not sure what to do with them.

Need to fix the radiator leak, get a new battery, top of fluids, re-design the e-brake bracket that went through the old transmission cross member support...

If they just terminate as open vent lines, then poke a fuel filter in them, place about another foot of hose on the other end of the filter and turn it so it points down in order to protect it from water running in there, but still allowing vapors to vent. Kinda like a differential vent.

^^^ The fuel tank vent on the avatar was done like that, and it hung barely in view behind the RF tire. Imagine my surprise when a guy next to me at a stop-light was frantically calling my attention to the fact that my "fuel filter was disconnected!!!"
