if you wanna change it all, your best bet is a donor vehicle, cherokee's or grand cherokee's are somewhat common to use as a donor.

there's also a way to upgrade your 5 speed to the ax15 trans that is used behind the six's. if you wanna consider keeping a manual. that trans lasts.

yes, 4 cyl only had ax5. but the dakota's 2.5 used the ax15, so a dakota bellhousing can make the ax15 fit the 2.5 motor. there's a great thread on it i kept trying to make sticky cuz this comes up every week, but i have it saved so i put it up whenever it comes up.

I may just do that I is getting more frequent AND now we can add grinding to get it into first. I have had an offer of a th 6 cyl conversion with another 5 speed parts and labor (done by a very reputable business) for 2k I may just go that route
