Question tj tranny swap

My '99 TJ needs a new clutch, but in the process I stumbled upon a g56 tranny from an '05 TJ and wanted to know how painstaking it would be to swap my 5-speed nv4500? to the 6-speed g56? Is it a simple bolt in swap or is it too difficult and not even worth it? Also if it is bolt in, is there any computer stuff that needs changing or anything else that would need to be changed at all? I couldnt really find an answer on this or if anyone has even done this yet. thanks

Do you have a stock transmission in your TJ? If so, I believe that you have the AX-15, possibly the NV3550, but TJ's never came with an NV4500 stock, in the U.S./Canada markets anyway. People are not giving great reviews of the new 6-speed transmissions, they seem to be weaker than the NV3550s that they replaced. If you need a new transmission, and you get a free one, the swap should be relatively simple, I think, just new transmission mounts. Good luck, and keep us in the loop if you go forward with it!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
