I don't know the details of that swap but don't fear flames here. We aren't like that.

Welcome to WF.

lol thats awesome. that is definitely her. she likes the color pink and wearing makeup but loves 4 wheeling even more. she used to go out and play in my prior rides, jacked up rangers and broncos and such, but she wants to go to what she knows jeeps.

ok if you buy an auto out of anything try to get it out of a wrangler, you need a new computer, the whole transmission cooling system, and i am gonna say a new mount on the skidplate, all the shifting assembly stuff out of the wrangler ( xj is diff i think) and uhhhhh some patience. in all reality let her learn to drive one and buy 1 or 2 new clutches in the process the end result will be better and everyone wins!!!

She might feel intimidated but she can learn to drive stick. I purchased a car brand new and couldn't take it for a test drive because I didn't know how Took me 20 mins. to learn and managed to drive it to work the next day. Been driving stick ever since. I have taught 4 other females to drive a stick shift. 1st step, don't try and get moving ---- have her ease up on clutch pedal and slowly give gas until you feel the vehicle wanting to move then repeat this a couple times until she knows where that point is. When adjusted to that feeling then get going. SHE CAN DO THIS

radiator, crossmember, does the spines on the output shaft on the auto match the ones in the standard or are you going to need a custom driveshaft?

Bring the Jeep home and park it in the driveway. It won't take long...she'll figure out how to drive it.
