WTF?!!!!! $1500 for a fscking THROWOUT bearing? Geez, how long is the line to stroke this guy?

Something else doesn't sound right, I thought Jeep dropped production of the Comanche before the 1993 model year.

It's no more than 3 hours labor to drop and replace the transmission. Parts? The last year I find Comanche info is for 1992, and I *THINK* that's that gawd forsaken internal bearing. It's under a hundred bucks. Having said that, the XJ gang with the internal slave has been having bad luck with the aftermarket parts. The D/C parts apparently have been holding up a lot better.

You'll also need the TCU and wiring harness in addition to the auto transmission.

You're going to have fun stuffing an AW4 transmission in, you'll also need the wiring harness and TCU as well. You'll probably need the crossmember, and I *THINK* you'll need a driveshaft as well. It'll make the bearing look cheap by the time you're done.

It'd be a lot cheaper to find an AX15 from a newer XJ (my 94 is an external) in the boneyard, and rob the bellhousing, fork assembly and master/slave cylinders for a refit. This should be doable in a driveway in a few hours.

An 88? Ouch. Slave cylinder from Autozone is $150. Must be the dreaded internal slave. Like I said, get it from the dealer, they seem to hold up better than aftermarket.

There ain't no froggin' reason a throwout bearing on that 88 MJ should run $1,500 to r&r. That's worse than my g/f's dad; he paid the GM dealer $900 for a ring & pinion set for a 14 bolt rear end, then paid someone else to install it.
