Transmission swap - length?

I am trying to find out if there is an automatic transmission that would be the same length as the AX15 that I can put behind my 4.0 as I don't want to have to have my new driveshafts cut/expanded to fit it in.

Thanks

Automatics are typically longer than manuals.I had to move up the motor mounts to accomodate this. If you don't you'll end up with a ridiculously shorter rear shaft and driveline angle. Neither one of these situations is ideal. I know of no other methods to deal with it. It's a short wheel base. HTH

yeah, but there is no way to move the engine forward or the fan would be in the radiator so I am thinking it would have to extend further back or be the same length.

You don't use the mechanical fan. Dump it for an electric from a junkyard Taurus or an after market fan. They're better anyway.Lotsa guys on this forum did this mod.
