Has anyone ever switch their jeep from automatic to manual? If so how hard and expensive was it?

Most of us go the other direction when it's for offroading, from manual to automatic. In fact, I converted my '97 TJ from its 5-speed to a 32RH automatic for rock crawling purposes. The only TJ I'd convert from an automatic to a manual would be one with the 2.5L four-banger engine which is admittedly anemic with its 30RH automatic.

What engine do you have and is there a particular reason you would rather have the manual? Most hardcore competition rigs long-ago made the switch to automatics because offroad, they just work better and give significantly more (2-3X) low-end torque.

I have a '97 4.0 inline 6. I just want to switch it as a personal preference for my jeep that I just plan to make my beach vehicle

When I swapped from manual to an automatic I found a guy to buy everything who was doing an auto to manual swap.

Maybe you can find somebody near you who is doing the same thing.
