I was just curious. Does anyone know of a bolt-in auto tranny that will work behind the 4.0 in the 98 XJ? I have nothing against the AW4, but i think my bands are worn out cause it seems like it slips every now and then, and i wanna keep my eyes open for maybe another tranny that can easily be put in, especially if i can find a good deal on one. Plus i have noticed that on the 97 and up AW4 there is no conversion to lock the tranny in first gear, like there is on the 96 and down models. Any help would be appreciated.

You actually can mod the post 97 AW4 to lock down in a particular gear, but it will trip the check engine light.

I havent found a bolt in for the cherokee. best bet i to go with the stock tranny again. go to the junk yard and pull one out. i did one a while ago but many mods were needed.

Okay.....

Not meaning to highjack the thread but I'm confused(or maybe just stupid, I'm not sure yet).I need some clerifying......

I thought the AW4 was the 4-speed automatic tranny with overdrive that came with the 4.0L straight 6.

So what's the name of the stock 5-speed tranny, and what's under my car (4.0L auto 4-speed w/ overdrive)? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

the AW4 is the 4 speed auto that came in every cherokee automatic i believe. and the 5 speed manual should either be the AX-15 or pre 90's peugot tranny

i was just curious if any other tranny would work like the newer auto's in the 01-06 wranglers.

im not unhappy with my tranny by any means, just curious what else was out there if i ever wanted to get a little swap happy.

Doesn't look like there's any easy swaps out there. But here's something to think about if you want to tinker (not sure what it would do to your check engine light.) http://awshifting.com/
