Do you mean 1987? A 1997 would be a TJ not a YJ and I'm pretty sure all 2.5's with a manual came with the AX-5. The AX-5 likely won't hold up behind a 4.2 or a 4.0

I don't think so; I think the splines are different. I think most back up an AX-15 with a NP231J T-case.

Check this thread to find out your stock specs and look in the FAQ for write-ups on transmission swaps. Lots of good info in the FAQ.

If you're gonna do an engine swap, get a 4.0 so you've got injection. Seems backward to me to go to the 4.2.

95' 2.5L to 4.2L swap would be a headache. Swapping to a 4.0L is a better engine and a much easier swap. Check out the link in my sig for info on the 2.5 - 4.0 swap.
