Ive been thinking about changing my '97's Automatic to a manual. I was wondering if anyone else has done it and what were/are going to be the main snags and problems. I figure i can maybe find a junkyard and get like the clutch pedals and maybe some wiring harnesses. If you guys have any ideas im open to them and if well its really not worth it, then tell me. But i really want to, partly because my automatic one is starting to mess up. All help is appreciated

I would replace the AW4.I have one with 308,000 miles on it.
On thing if you pruchase a used tranny most people dog the hell out of them and the AX5 and AX15 are prone for synchronizers plus the oil
is quite expense at Jeep only.
Questions you have ask yourself.
AW4 used, change fluid and seals it is ready for install.
Used manual tranny, clutch?,seals?,Pedal setup?,will the transfer case bolt
from my AW4 to the manual tranny?, will my drive shaft bolt from my AW4?
Most salvage yards sell the tranny and the transfer case together.
Why you may ask more money on the sale.
