  1. Important engine question

    JK Tech Forum
    I am thinking of buying a 2013 jeep sport wrangler the only thing about it is it is a manual and I am used to automatic. I am going to learn to drive manual but If I ever wanted to switch the engine to automatic and get all the parts I needed would that even be possible?
