    Default 03 tj five speed to auto swap help



    My clutch just went out on my way home. Since Iím going to be pulling the tranny out why not swap in a automatic while Iím at it. What would I need to complete the swap besides the auto tranny? new drive shafts? Computer, transmission cooler and lines? Who has done this and can help point me in the right direction? Thanks everyone

    If no one else knows, you might try to private message the user "Happy Camper". Last year he swapped out an automatic from a ford explorer and swapped in a manual. Obviously the reverse of what you are doing, and not on a jeep, but he seems to have had prior experience with these swaps from my conversations with him. I haven't seem him online or at a run since last fall, so not sure if he still checks the messages.

    Upon PM, the system typically sends an e-mail of the PM - unless that user turned off the function (can it be turned off?)...

    Add a flex plate and a torque converter to your list.

    Spending some time looking through a service manual should help narrow it all down.

    After all my mess on the green Ranger find a cheap, trashed doner rig...
    it will save a ďBUNCHĒ on running around time and little nickel and dime parts.

    Are you pulling an AX5? If so do you have a plan for it? I might be interested in buying it if it's in good shape.

    Iím reading up on everything as much as I can before I start buying parts. I pulled it out the other night and looking everything over to see if anything else needs replaced.

    My transmission I have now is a nv3550.

    I just put a new clutch in for now. Iíll gather up all the parts I need to do the conversion over winter that way Iím not rushing anything. Iíve really been considering the aw4 swap as the parts are a dime a dozen
