Re: Cherokee transmssion into a CJ7?
Actually I don't think that 4.0 liter cherokes ever used a chrylser tranny ( mabye an electronic version on the 98 or newer ones) but the 87 to 98 ones use a four speed aw4 tranny. It is made by the same guys that make the ax-15 ax-5 trannys.From what i've heard they are pretty stout, not as strong as a 727 but a lot stronger than a 999 or a 909. My dads 88 cheroke with a 4.0 liter and aw4 has 200,000 miles on it and the tranny still shifts like its new. I'm not sure if it is the same length as a 904 you might have to modify you driveshafts. Go asked the guys on the cherokee board about the length , spline count a durability they will know for sure. Hope this helps.
