Will it fit, length, etc. in a '98 TJ that originally had the AX-15 tranny (5 speed). I'm assuming that I'll need an adapter, but what about the length, etc.

Fred -

The length is close to the same. It is 24.75". This includes the adapter to the T/C. The bellhousing adapter adds another 5/8". I am using the Atlas II.

I am finding out that this is not a cheap swap. HTH.

I haven't even begun to price anything. I'm just sort of thinking out loud (damn that hurts!). Anyway, *if* something like this was to happen, it seems that, even if it's not "cheap", the TH700 may be a better idea. "Low" first gear compared to some of the other options (like the TF999) for rockcrawling (adding a Tera 4:1 and already have 4.56's) and an overdrive.

That was the same boat I was in. As I was doing my research, the late 700-R4 (4L60) seemed the way to go. So far, the swap has been going fairly smooth. Haven't finished it since I got roped into a CJ springover with YJ springs.

Anyway, I am learning much more than I thought I would.

Here is another write up.

AX-15 to 700-R4 Swap

I purchased most of these parts before I even found this page. It seems like it will work very good. The only thing that I have heard is that 5.13 gears will put the 4.0L in it's powerband with the 700-R4 and 35" rubber.

Um, ah bolt it behind one <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Most 700's started life behind 305's, and 350's..and also 4.3's. Auotmatic Camaros, and Firechicken's use use 4L60's behind the LT1.
