When doing a engine swap into a TJ or YJ you have to use a Dakota NV3500 bellhousing to be able to use the AX-15. So since of that my guess is a AW4 won't work.
The YJ came with an AX15, there is no bellhousing switch?

Why canít you bolt an AW4 to a 5.9?

That's my thought. Just didn't know what issues come into play with the flexplate.
