Well guys it looks like I'd be better off with a newer Tranny

So I am shopping around, I guess junkyards are my best bet??

i would buy oem sensors/solenoids. some vehicles don't mind duralast or whatever off brand autozone/advance uses, jeeps aren't one of them. oem sensors and electronics are best(not always best quality, but works the best with the computers.)

before you get the cart ahead of the horse, get 6qts of atf and drop the pan to see what comes out. if you've got a lot of metal and sludge, look for a lower mileage junker or a rebuild. if your fluid is just burnt and there isn't much shavings, get the solenoids and a filter and replace those with a cooler flush as well.
if you see any brass/copper colored shavings that's "bad" and you're gonna want a rebuild.

upload to photobucket and copy the links over to here.

the price sounds normal for a tranny rebuild. though it's pretty much robbery with all the more that's involved.
i'd say it's roughly 500 in parts at the most and 8hrs labor from the first bolt in the jeep to the last.
