1998 Automatic Trans to Manual Swap?
I have a 98 Wrangler sitting in pieces currently (frame swap). I absolutely hate the automatic transmission in it now and was thinking "hell, why not switch it while it's apart". Also my current auto 3 speed transmission is leaking everywhere and has some major issues. What all do I need to make the swap?
I know the engine computer is different, where could I grab one of those? EDIT: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-TJ-WRAN...r#ht_500wt_747
Also would it be a lot easier to do it now that everything is apart? My body is sitting on lifts and the drivetrain is on a trailer, it's literally all a part.
How much do you think this swap will cost me? I really do want to do it now that I think about it. Is it a hard swap?
