Swapping Auto and Manual transmissions

Alright, this is my second attempt to get some advice.

I have a 92 YJ with a 5 speed manual and 4.0ltr. I have an opportunity to pick up another YJ in awesome shape but its an automatic. The YJ I am looking at is a 92 with a 4.0ltr auto. So, same year, same model, same motor different transmissions.....

How hard is it to swap the 2 transmissions? Has anyone done this? Can you offer any advice?

Any help is appreciated. I posted this once already and didn't get any response. I'm starting to think that unless I need help picking out pretty rims or fuzzy dice for my pavement queen then this forum isn't the place to get real answers. Please prove me wrong.

Not a whole lot of information, but.... I will try. If you have all of the proper tools...and aptitude, not real difficult. As long as the lifts are equal, and you have WHOLE drivelines, there should be no equipment issues. The most difficult item will be moving the clutch apparatus to the auto. This difficulty kind of depends on internal/external slave.

Yeah and cutting the hole for the clutch pedal and go with external slave. And cutting a hole out for the shifter. Only thing that might be different is the manual might have a different spline input shaft for the transfer case and I'm not sure on the engine side. I'm pretty sure the ax15 Is 23 spline for the transfer case. If your swapping it all shouldn't be too bad I don't think.
