  • Newbie trans question

    I'll soon be getting my first Jeep, an 86 CJ7. I want to swap from the manual trans to an auto. I am leaning toward the tf999 because it was the stock trans. What I need to know is it a pretty straight forward swap? I've been told by some that I will have to modify the drive lines and others have said that I will not. Who is right?

    Do you mean "Drive Shafts"? If so, most cases you have to change the rear due to the autos being a longer setup.

    You will need a radiator that also is your tranny cooler.

    What maual tranny do you have currently?

    Column shifter, or floor shifter for the auto?

      Yeas, I meant drive shafts. I already have the radiator and I'll be going with a floor shifter so that I don't have to change out the whole column. I'm not exactly sure of which trans is currently in it, I do know it's a 4-speed. I won't be getting my hands on the CJ until Memorial Day weekend that's when my pops retires and he and my mom will be moving to Cali, so I don't have all the details.
