I bought my used/good condition 32RH & nearly everything needed for the swap for only $800. I probably had $1k into the transmission swap itself before I was done. It would be hard to do it for that $1k since I ran into an unusually good deal on mine but at least it doesn't have to cost you an arm & a leg. That manual to automatic transmission conversion was the best thing I ever did to make my TJ even better/more capable offroad.
