Will a trans out of a 93-95 v8 fit?

I have a 98 niner with a blown trans. I'm going to a jy soon and was wondering if any v8 zj trans will work or if it has to be from a 96-98. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

5.9l's had the 46RE. They are the only ZJ with this transmission. 93-95 V8 ZJs had the 46RH, and 96-98 5.2l V8 ZJs had the 44RE.

IIRC the 46rh is longer than the 46re, so you would need driveshafts as well. and the re is electronically controlled where the rh is hydraulic

Won't work.
The 44re tends to burn up behind the 5.9 as well.
Maybe you'll luck into a niner, otherwise get your transmission rebuilt.

And get a trans-cooler installed in the process...

Ok thanks guys. Think I found a 46re for $850. It has about 80k on it. Is that a good deal or not?

has to bee a jeep 46re, make sure the starter pocket is on the right side, not the left.

also, the 46re does go for a premium over the 44re, the 44 usually runs between 500 and 700 at a salvage yard. the 46 usually starts at 750 and goes upwards of 1500 in some states.

It's out of a niner. $500 if I can get at their cost so may try to pick it up myself and get it cheaper.
