jeep tj frame year range

I have a 1999 jeep tj 6 cylinder stick that needs a new frame.. and i know that the frame has to be any where from a 97 to 02 but and the motor mounts are different between a 4 and 6 cylinder,

but my question is does it matter if the frame it is auto or stick? Any feedback would be appreciated thanks!

The transfer case skid will be different I believe but I'm not sure if actual bolt pattern is different on the frame

Frames were same just skid differences between pre 03 and 03 and after. Any should work as long as you get one with the right motor mounts and get the corresponding skid if you don't have the right one. It shouldn't matter as the ax15 and nv3550 have same transmission mount locations. And they straddled the skid change in 03.

Also the steering box changed in 03 and all the bolts went to metric so you'd need new hard ware and steering box or fab the mounts yourself and a new tranny mount for the newer skid style. Some needed a different tranny adapter but I think they were running the older autos. This is just for 03-06 frames, if you go that way.
