I would definitely contact Blaine when/if the time comes.

|Jerry Bransford||It'd cost enough time, $$$, and effort that I'd hold out for one with the automatic. Unless you can afford to have Blaine Johnson (Black Magic Brakes) who is close to you convert it over to the 4-speed AW4 which would be the best choice of automatics.|

I'm most likely going to get a 2006 LJ with 6 speed manual. It's not a Rubi, but has the NP241 tcase.
What would the rough cost be to change to auto?

If he swaps transfer cases or the input gear on transfers cases he would not need the extended seal
I would just keep the tc case with the transmission it started with
Your only issue if you swap PCM (ECU) then you may want to swap inst clusters and odometer readings will probably swap with PCM
Last issue is the sentry key issue if one or other had a sentry key you have a big issue as if a PCM is plugged into a TJ with a sentry key reader in the ignition key that PCM will have the sentry key function permanently activated and never again be useable with out using a sentry key even if you plug it into a TJ that does not have that feature

|Jerry Bransford||In that scenario all I can think of would be an extended output shaft seal for the 32RH going into the TJ that used to run the AX15, a new clutch and throw out bearing, and fresh ATF+4.|
|05-29-2014 12:15 AM|
So also a scenario here. 2 x 1999 TJ Sports 4.0, one is an auto one is a manual. Side by side. Can you just swap part for part? Or do you still have to buy stuff?
|05-23-2014 09:39 AM|
|Jerry Bransford||There are changes, like the 32RH output shaft seal needs to be extended when bolting it to a 231 that had been bolted to an AX-15. Plus the front driveshaft needs to be swapped for one made for an automatic to clear the wider transmission pan of the automatic. Rear driveshaft length needs to be changed too if I recall correctly, it's been too long since I did mine.|

|Mike02TJ||With this Change in a earlier TJ (97-02) going to the 34RH out of a TJ, Will the Transfercase, And stock Drive shafts still work with the New Auto Tranny?|

1998 Jeep Wrangler Automatic to Manual Transmission
HEY LIVERMORE MIKE
It is my first time here and apologize bumping in.
I have a 1998 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 L sport with Automatic Transmission.
I am considering maybe swapping my Jeep with your 1998 Jeep with Manual Transmission.
Let me know if you consider it.

|lindel||I'm not positive, but I think the 88 came with the TF904, or the TF999. No computer controls that I know of, but no lockup either.|
|02-25-2014 09:22 AM|
The easiest would be a 32RH automatic, which I did a conversion to in my TJ years ago, that was used back then but you'd have to get more advice about your earlier YJ. Your '88 didn't come with a computer that could control the lockup torque converter that is in later model 32RH autos. That may mean, I don't know for sure, that you may have to get an early 32RH without the lockup torque converter. I'm really only totally up on that conversion process with '97 or newer TJs.
I'm a huge fan of automatics but as I did with my then 16 year old daughter (now over 30), I would just teach her how to drive that stick shift. It took her a couple hours to learn with me sitting next to her but that's a lot easier than converting to an automatic.

1988 converson from manual to automatic trans question
Sorry for asking the same question but I have a 1988 Jeep Wrangler with a 4.2L and a manual transmission. I would like to convert to an automatic for my 16yo daughter. Any issues I my run into? Also, what transmission do I need?

Yep it's possible, you'll just need a new PCM, Transmission Computer, PCM to Transmission Computer cable, and the mechanical parts.... transmission mount, shifter & cable, flex-plate to replace the flywheel, etc.
It's a major undertaking but I did it to my '97 & it worked out well. But with a newer TJ like yours which is a bit more complex than my '97 was, I'd seriously consider selling it & buying one with an automatic already installed.

Manual to an automatic.

|JoeyEsp||Hi, i was wondering if it would be possible to convert my 09 wrangler from manual to automatic. what would i need to purchase inorder to actually accomplish this?|
|01-14-2011 07:21 AM|
I just bought a 2000 Wrangler TJ that was converted from manual to automatic. It runs good but I have one little concern: Often I see the little arrow light, (the one that tells you it is time to shift on manual transmissions) on the dashboard come on, and the jeep starts jumping a little like looking for that next gear. Is this normal or could it be that whoever made the change forgot to change the computer or installed the wrong one.
Thank you for your input in advanced,
|10-26-2010 11:20 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||The only way you're gonna get rid of those codes is to replace the present PCM (aka ECM on older vehicles) programmed for an automatic for another PCM programmed for a manual transmission. As it is now, the PCM is looking for sensor input signals and codes from the auto tranny's computer and it's not gonna get them from the new 6-speed manual transmission. You can find replacement (rebuilt) PCMs on eBay.|

04 wrangler auto to 05 manual 6 speed
I'm helping a buddy who converted an automatic 04 wrangler to a 6 speed from a 05. he has several codes p0706 shifter signal, p0750 lr solenoid circuit, p0846 2-4 pressure switch ,p0871od pressure switch, p1899 park/nuetral switch. any idea on how to get rid of them? maybe replace the ecm, or fake the sensors?
thanks for any help

|robbytwo1||I have a manual tranny and think my computer went bad... do any of you that made the switch to an auto transmission still have the computer you took out of your Jeep when it was set up as a manual? If so please let me know. I am interested in buying the computer. I have a 2001 4.0 Wrangler. My cell is 407-770-8281. Robert.|

Manual to Automatic Transmission Conversion
(Sorry bmanrkg2 but the automatic in your 2004 is a 42RLE transmission which is computer controlled and would be a nightmare to install into his 2001. Consider a swap between a 2002 and older and 2003 and newer to be pretty much a non-happener.)
Is this true? Mine is a 2003 and i would like to swap it over, is there any other way to get it done?
