93 wrangler nv3550 swap question

so i bought my first jeep a few months back. a 93 wrangler I6 with a 5speed. after 3 days of riding in it with a big smile on my face the trans blew a part.... now for the really bad stuff. it turns out that the previous owner put a peugeot in it. yes im sure. i asked questions, looked up numbers and looked at pics. so i get in the market for the right trans that should be in my jeep and DANG!!! they are hard to find and when you do find one the price...... anyways so i start looking into going to the nv3550. there is a local junk yard that may have one with the t-case out of a 2001 cherokee for a good price. i plan on going to take a look at it in the next couple of days. from everything i have read it should be as close to a bolt in as you can get. my question is is there anything that i should be worried about doing this swap? anything that yall know will help alot. again this is my first jeep/jeep part swaping. i know my way around tools and can do a good hack job at welding ;-) . i just need to know if this is something i should really look into. thanks in advance!

Cory

I'd have to ask if you're absolutely sure it's a BA and then ask for pics as well based on this from Novak.....

Here's some more info on the BA10, the AX-15, and the NV3550.

Don't know about the BA but the only modifications I did when I installed my nv3550 was to the floor pan and the trans shifter bracket. I used the same throw out bearing and all.

You'll need to re-clock the t-case if the setup came from an XJ. Re-drill the holes in the trans.

the setup im looking into is from a 01 cherokee. if i get everything from bellhousing to tcase is there anything i need to be aware of like electrical/computer stuff? from what all i read up on my jeep is supposed to have the ax15. so the nv3550 should be bolt in so to say right?

That's certainly a BA10.

I think you'll basically bolt up.

It'll basically (should) bolt up but you will have to make a few modifications. The opening in the trans tunnel on your floor board will need to be opened up b/c the shifter is positioned further back and you'll need the clearance. You'll also need to make another cover to compensate for the larger opening. Not a big deal as everything you need is at Lowes or Home Depot.

You'll also need to figure out what to do about the transfer case shifter. I bought a bracket that bolts to the TC at the tranny mount. You'll also need to modify your TC shift linkage possibly. Again not a big deal. Totally worth it in my opinion
