Where are you located? I have an 01with a freshly rebuilt auto that I would be willing to trade for your 5sp and cover the cost of the swap.

5 speed auto swap

I am located in Colorado Springs and am looking to swap my 5 speed out of a 2002 Wrangler sport for an automatic. Let me know if you are close and interested.

The 2002 Wrangler has 85k on it...was going to trade it in and get an auto...thought I would look on here first for some hints. The transmission shifts like brand new!

As for what all is involved, off the top of my head:

ECU from Jeep with an auto
Torque convertor
Shifter assembly
Pedal assembly
transmission to TB cable
transmission lines and cooler
appropriate speedo gear for your axles
1998 Wrangler Sport: 4.0 with a 5 speed, 2 1/2" spring lift, 33" Duratracs, Warn winch, and few other things.

I did that swap in my previous '97 TJ and it was done in a weekend. Best offroad purpose mod I ever did to it, right up there with the f/r lockers. Do it!

When you have a choice, buy American.
