Sacrilege!

...how tough and/or expensive is it to have the manual transmission switched over to an auto?

...i've been using the 2010 JK as a DD for the last year...and it's starting to kill me (my back really). so yeah, it would be a bummer to switch but...


...tranny, tranny linkage, shifter and cowling? sound right?

Probably 3000 to 5000 bucks, down time probably 1 month-

ECU and elex trouble always after, no warranty--EVER

Sellit, buy an auto-

It'd be cheaper to just trade for an auto. You could even upgrade to a rubi or a 2012 too if you wanted

Not worth it unless you can get the tranny from a junk yard super cheap and do the work yourself. It would be easier to just trade it in for an auto.

...well that answers that.

...i kept the stock wheels but i pitched the stock bumpers. i'd have to remove all the 'mod's' and CB and say goodbye to the stickers.


...and i just replaced the shocks and springs and i've got riddler's, synergy ball joints and an MRBP exhaust pipe just sitting in the garage waiting to be installed ( though i think they all would fit on a 2012 ).


...i was really thinking i would pay this jeep off and keep it in the family until i took the dirt nap. you know a jeep that anyone could drive if needed and on weekends.

...on to plan B - different car for DD and relegate the jeep to it's 'original purpose'..


...thanks for the help.
