floor shifter????

here's the scoop... i got this jeep on trade (1988 yj sahara 4.2L 2bbl )
i was told that all i needed was an internal slave cylinder which is no biggy for me. problem is the tranny is bad in more ways then just a slave cylinder. so here's my question i got a A-904 automatic tranny mint cond. inside and out for a steal i want a floor shifter not a colum shifter will a floor shifter from a cherokee work? and what about the kickdown cable how do i run the cable for that? where does it hook up to? the tranny is in and everything just need to know how to go about this shifter issue.

you can get away with this 2 ways. either go the cherokee route but make sure you get all the cable brackets and linkages that go with it or just pick up a cheap floor shifter from mr gasket or b&m. I am doing the same thing now to my 88 yj and was thinking about the factory shifter from a xj or something but i fear the stick will be too short for me to reach all the time. I picked up a Mr. Gasket one from work and it will work just fine. as far as the kick down you will still want the stuff off the xj for that. not sure how you would attach the cable to the 4.2L but I am doing a 318 swap so mine will be different on the engine side.
