Just got off the phone with a salvage yard and they said they had one for $550.00 its from a 1999 but i dont know anything else about it. He said in the computer that the transmission for my jeep, a 1997, is a one year fit... You know why it would say that??

The transmission is the same regardless of the model year from '97 to '02. The transmission I installed into my '97 came out of, to the best of my recollection, a '99 TJ. There are only two electrical connections and they don't change... the NSS (neutral safety switch) and the connector for the 2-wire lock-up torque converter solenoid. The computer itself changes slightly from year to year for reasons other than the transmission but the transmission itself doesn't care as long as it's from a '97 to '02. Your existing computer will remain in place and nothing electrical will change.

Just make sure that transmission came out of a TJ that had the 4.0L engine and not the 2.5L.

I sure will Jerry.... Also found the lift... With a 4" lift and 35" tires I should be able to drop the tranny and roll it out from under the jeep with this lift right?

That's the same transmission jack I used for my tranny swap, it'll work fine with your lift & tire size. You'll also need two special sockets for your ratchet wrench, an E-10 to unbolt the transfer case from the transmission and an E-12 to unbolt the transmission from the engine. The E-10 and E-12 bolts (like inside-out torx heads) are at the very top, there are two each on the top of the tranny & transfer case. Have on hand a bunch of extensions to go between the ratchet wrench and E-12 socket to reach the top two E-12 bolts that hold the tranny to the engine. I think I used around 2' of extensions to reach those two particular bolts.

I've removed and re-installed a few trannys in my day. Just listen to what others say. Make sure to be careful! Take your time, and lastly remember where everything goes.

Digital Camera's make that a breeze!

Ragman you shouldn't have a problem if you truck is auto,
the tranny you have already has a vent hose that extends into the engine bay.

Im not an expert on going from an auto to manual in jeeps, but in Mustangs cost is somewhat a factor. You have to buy pedal assembly, clutch cylinder, run lines, new bell housing, clutch fork, computer, tranny, etc. Whereas if you just bought another 32RH...thats all you would need.

You said you paid 4k for it recently, I would imagine getting all the parts to go to manual would cost you well over the cost of just another automatic.

Also, there has been debates on why autos are better to wheel with then manuals. two vs 3 pedals, torque, longevity, etc etc. There are arguments for both sides, but I think the main question for you is...How much do you want to spend.

Again....Im not an expert on jeeps yet so Im sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Just a quick interruption:

This is a great example of how valuable some of these threads can be. Specific, focused information sharing at it's finest.

It's almost annoying when I realize how much more valuable Jerry's knowledge is than mine. Sorry to interrupt. I'm now going to go back to making wise-ass remarks in the "name-that-car" thread.

So.... the manual in an 06 4.0 doesn't have the vent hose to the engine bay?

So far as I know, manual trannies for the 4.0L starting with the NV3550 and newer (2000 or so and newer) all have long enough remote vent tubes to keep water out. If you have a 2.5L with the manual AX-5 transmission or the 4.0L with the AX-15 transmission, it does not have a remote vent tube so be wary. I have no idea about the transmission used with the newer 2.4L engine, that engine/tranny combo is a complete mystery to me, I've never even seen one.

For automatics, you're good to go 2003 and newer which uses the 42RLE 4-speed automatic since they have remote vent tubes. 2003 and older automatics have the vent opening up front that can leak if you are in deep water more than momentarily.

Thanks for the info Jerry, I found this write up in lieu of this thread:

How To Waterproof Your Transmission - GETAHELMET.COM

It claims that an 01 and 02 TJ with the NV3550 doesn't have a long enough remote vent, maybe they have the 2.5L engine instead of the 4.0L?
