99 TJ trans info

Hi all. New here and trying to find some info on the 99 TJ I just bought. How can I tell which transmission I have. It has the 6cyl. With auto trans. It doesn't want to shift into high gear until it warms up. Once it warms unit does okay most of the time. It also has a pretty bad skip until it warms up. Any help would be appreciated.

That's the 32RH. It's a 3 speed with lock-up converter. If it's not going into 3rd until warmed-up, that's a problem. If it's not going into lockup until it's warmed-up a little, that's normal.

Yeah if I jump in it and crank and go from a cold start. It takes about a mile and a half before it locks up. The one that went sour on me in 2011, and the new one that's in now.
But I'm clueless about your skipping problem, we need more specific info

The trans is a 3 speed. It has a lock up converter and will not lock until it is warmed up. If you start out cold you will have "2 shifts" until the trans is warm, then the "third" shift will happen. But that is not a shift you are feeling, it is the converter locking. Is this what is happening? If so, that is normal.

I have a 2000 wrangler, 6 cyl with automatic. Think I have same thing happening. When cold, I think the 2nd to 3rd shift revs and will not shift until I let off the gas.

I will go back out in the morning and count the shifts. Maybe I am missing one and the final "shift" is the lock-up? Will be happy if that is normal. Been crawling all over the web to find out what it is.
