I'm trying to swap my auto to the AX15 please help me :/

Ok, so i have been wanting to swap my automatic tranny for the AX-15 5 speed, or any other 5 speed that will work well.
I have a 1995 ZJ with the 5.2 in it.
this is where i'm confused, is the bell housing i have going to bolt onto the ax-15? and if not, what can i do??
any help would be great, thanks guys

I read that the AX5 is not meant to be used with a V8. Jp suggests a truck transmission. Novaks has a lot of good material on this.

A Dakota 5 speed (ax-15) with its bellhousing is what you want. Take its t-case also. A v6 or v8 so the bolt pattern is the same.
