torque converter

I am getting a used transmission. A 46rh. My transmission lost both first and second gear. So I was wondering if the used transmission doesn't come with a torque converter should I us my old one? What are the pros and cons of using the old torque converter? Thank you for any comments!!

Don't use an old TC get a new one. It's not worth the trouble.

Any preference on a good one that isn't crazy expensive?

There are two types of torque converters. There is a lock and a non-lock. Which one for my jeep?
