42RE bolt patterns

Really simple... Is the bolt pattern the same between the 3.9L Dakota 42RE and the 4.0 I6 Jeep 42RE?

I picked up a 42RE trans to rebuild for my Jeep, and didn't realize until just now that I think it came out of a Dakota, based on the torque converter that came with it.


Is there any other differences between them?

The starter mounts on the opposite sides of the bellhousing, all the guts are interchangeable though. If you are seeing a difference in torque convertors its probably because they changed them in 97. The difference is a balanced converter vs neutral balance. The older converters had one bolt offset and the newer ones were an exact 90* pattern. You can swap converters but you will need to use the proper flexplate too.

The converter I have is stamped "E781", which comes back to a 3.9L V6, and has a ring gear on it.

The converter for my Jeep has no ring gear.

I have another 42RE case sitting in my friend's storage unit. As long as the internals are the same, I can always just put the internals out of this JY trans into my other case.
