1997 Jeep TJ 4.0L Auto Tranny

I am having a really hard time locating an Auto Tranny for my 1997 TJ.

It's a 4.0L.

The steering wheel is on the right side, but Chrysler told me it was a factory stock left side steer Jeep...

The only marking on the Tranny is a casting Number 393-2.

Can anybody help me out?

1) Steering should have no bearing on which transmission you have, though the controls are obviously different.

2) Your observation on markings is not true. The assembly number, date, serial number, and partial VIN are stamped on the transmission. Most likely none of the numbers will help you locate the correct one, but they might, if Chrysler has a build list available, be able to tell you whether it is original to the vehicle or not.

3) Three-speed in-line Chrysler transmissions after 96 are relatively rare, so it does not surprise me that it is hard to find.

4) Your transmission is relatively bullet proof, so why don't you just rebuild it?

5) The transmission on the left in the picture is a 4-speed Toyota built transmission and is one of the best 4-speed transmissions ever made by anyone. Your transmission is one of the best 3-speeds ever made and Chrysler first started making them in 1959 for the 1960 model year.

6) Call Case Used Parts, Marion SC, 800-234-2928 or Hoopers Used Auto Parts, Dallas NC 704-922-0465. They both apparently have one in stock.
