Sad I am getting a jeep from my little sister who was a little hard on her jeep and the transmission went out. what is the most economic way of fixing it. They say it will cost a $1,000.00 to have someone do it. Is it cheeper to buy a rebuilt tran, or try to rebuild the one it has???

Do you have 4.0L and automatic?
What transfer?
If the XJ has 4.0L and auto, the tranny is an AW4. Aisn Warner 4 speed.
These trannys are very relaible and hold up very well.
My 1988 with factory, original tranny 314,000 miles.
I would look to see is the filter and tranny fluid have been changed.
Try that first before a tranny transplant or overhaul.
The filter and fluid about $40.00
Might as well do the transfer too.
