Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

AX15 would be the stock 4.0L manual trans in most jeep products. It wouldn't be a particularly easy swap - could you even get a stick in a 98 GC stock? Better off just rebuilding the AW4.

Well then maybe an AW4 swap would be an idea. Definitely a better transmission.

you can only run a 42RE without not getting cel codes. the TCM is in the PCM and there is no way to override or bypass it for a 5 speed.
