Question 98 transmission swap options?

i have a 98 Wrangler with a 4.0 automatic. the tranny is going bad, i want to learn more about my options. re-build. buy a brand new one. but mostly i want to look into installing a manual. what do you guys think? what manuals can fit? and what is the best way to go about that?

also i have been on this forum for a couple of years now, but i just made an account today so this is my first post, glad to be here!

I take it that you have an auto right now since you stated that you would want to install a manual..

Have you tried a filter and fluid change in your transmission?

The AX-15 came with the 4.0 up until 2000 when jeep started using the nv-3550.

Not too sure on how easy a swap from auto to manual would be.. the only one ive seen was from a manual to an auto done by jerry bransford.

98 TJ sport 4.0L I6 356,000 miles.
No Engine, axle, tranny, or t-case rebuilds.
Check out my 5.3 swap in progress here!
