2001 WJ 42re into 1996 ZJ

I'm in dire need of a 42re in decent shape. I'm calling local JYs in the area.

Just got off the phone with a guy who is positive a 42re from an 2001 WJ will fit in my 1996 ZJ... He says the newer transmission has an extra set of brackets that can be removed if they get in the way...

Do I smell bull@#$%?

According to the FAQ's above, (vehicle spec's), the 42re was used in the 4.0 l, from 93-02, so you should be ok.
