Automatic YJ conversion

im planing on converting from a colum shift to a floor shift on my 1995, like how the TJ's have it. I've heard that the TJ's have an electronic shifter in there trans. If thats true will i then have to get TJ trans or if not am i still able to use my original trans and just convert the shifter?

its usually fairly simple to convert from column to floor shifter, i know i've done it in cars, but never jeeps. i've never seen a wrangler with a column shifter, but i can't remember the last yj i saw that was auto. good luck

i'm a little confused, what are you converting to. i'm under the impression that you have an auto now, and you want to move the shifter for the auto trans. is that right.

yea i have an automatic now and i cant stand the shifter being in the column so im coverting it to a floor shifter like how the TJ's and up have it. but thats just the begining. after that i am going to be putting a 5.0 mustang GT engine in it and trans. i grew up rebuilding jeeps with my godfather for offroading but i would like to try one for the street this time...
