Convert Stickshift trans to Automatic ???

Seems like all the Wranglers in my price budget are standard stick shift models. I really need the automatic transmission.
What would be the approximate cost and forseen problems with a project like this ????

I am not a mountain climber, rock hopper or mud pit swamper so I do
not necessarily need the low granny gears for crawling out of stuff.

I can usually find a good mid 90's model with 6 cylinder, stick shift, 4WD,
heat and air conditioning for around $3500. So I am thinking it might be
cheaper to switch out the tranny gear to the automatic ..... or am i wrong ??
Orlando - Clermont area.

Nothing is impossible with enough money but you will need plenty if you do not know how to do this yourself. You seem to be budget concerned so I would advise against a transmission swap.

Do you have a physical limitation that prevents you from driving a stick? (I ask in all seriousness)

If it is just a preference then save more and buy and automatic.
