Ok, for a '98 TJ (4.0L, 5 speed), I'm assuming the the automatic that comes with the TJ, the TF999 is pretty much a "direct bolt in" replacement for the 5 speed (AX15), but how about the 4 speed auto from a late model XJ, the AW4 ?? I can't seem to find much info about them. The engine's the same (the 4.0L) and the xfer case is the same (NP231), and the xfer case input shafts *seem* to be the same (short 23 spline shaft), but what about the overall length of the AW4 compared to the TF999??

Fred,

I'm pretty sure the input shafts on the 231 are different for autos N manuals. I ran into this when I sold my 231. I don't remember which one is longer though

The t-cases mated to an AW-4 with 23 spline have the same input shaft as an AX-15 or NV3550 mated t-case. The 999 requires a different input shaft then an 5 spd. Becareful because some older AW-4's are 21 spline. The AW-4 is not a good swap because it is computer controled and it is 1" longer then an AX-15 or NV3550.

You might want to think long and hard before you do that swap. I beleive that you will either have to change the wiring harness or the computer, or both. The new autos are eletrionicly(sp) controled. And I don't beleive that they just leave the plugs hanging for both trannies. In the end you may find it easier and cheaper to buy one that has your tranny in it.

advance adapters was working on that swap and scraped it as the electronics are more trouble than its worth they went to using a 700r4(4l60) instead that would be the best trans for your application.

Save the headache and money...

With something that new, if you want the auto, sell your Jeep and buy one with the equipment you want.

Mo -

Much easier said than done. If Jeep only put a decent auto in the wrangler. Hell, If they put in the 4.7L V8 and the matching auto(RL45 ?) from the 2000 Grand Cherokee, I'd trade mine in in a heartbeat.

On one hand, I completly agree with Mo, that with something that new, you could sell yours and buy something with an auto. On the other hand, I know what its like to be attached to a vehicle, hence the reason I am keeping my yj and sticking an auto in it. Id say go for the TF-999 just because it is about as direct bolt in as you can get .. although.. you will have some issues.. cooling issues.. since you have the radiator for a manual, an tranny cooler will be needed. along with a lot of other stuff.. email me for more info on the stuff Ive needed to get... Don't forget that the auto is shorter, and requires a longer rear driveshaft and a shorter front driveshaft... It gets spendy.. Ive spent about 900 on parts for my swap, and that didnt include the 300 for the tranny/t case <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

ok note for the idiot:
this :flipoff2: is a friendly fawk you
this :flipoff: would mean that you made me angry in some way

this :flipoff: is for you now.
there is no tech in your post, all you are doing is saying "hey i am gonna switch to a standard and i would like to trade my shat for it" remove the last part and i would have just been caught off guard that a thread that old was brought up (does happen from time to time)and would not have said shat other than welcome.
but you wanted to do a trade and pimp it in the middle of here
so no it is in the WRONG damn forum.

your new so maybe this is your notification to get some thick skin and suck it up. and not take statements here as an personal attack.
