Transmission Swap 44RE to 46RE

Hello all, Been Following this forum and others for years, and I finally have a question that I cannot answer by searching your site

I Currently have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L Limited with a 44RE transmission, this transmission is now beginning to fail after 210K and I was looking if anyone had any information / Advice on getting it swapped out with a 46RE from a 5.9 model, (wiring/Connectors / if it will just mate right up or i have to modify it.

and has anyone done this swap before that you or this forum know of?

-Dan

Keep in mind that you need a 46RE from a 1998 5.9L Grand Cherokee. Dodge truck transmissions will not work as the starter mounts on the opposite side of the Jeep trannies.
