Don't waste time or money on the ba 10/5, it's junk.
what you need for an ax15 swap:
you need to change the pilot bushing to one from an ax15 equipped Jeep (they're all the same)
you need an ax15 and the transmission mount plate+mount from a cherokee (YJ/TJ ax15s will require modification due to the clocking of the transmission's bolt pattern)
if it's an external slave model, get the entire master cylinder/slave cylinder setup from the cherokee along with the clutch pedal itself (pushrod hole sizes are different, and swapping the pedal is easier than modifying the cylinder)
you may need to press out a stud on the master cylinder (somewhere along the line, they pressed a stud into the cylinder, to make it harder to install or something like that)
if it's 4wd, the driveshafts will all fit, but you will need the ENTIRE 4wd shifter linkage from the cherokee.
if it's 2wd, I do not know if the driveshaft will work (depends on differences on output housing length) the transmissions have damn near identical case lengths.
worst part of the job is getting the old pilot bushing out, once you get that done, it's cake from there on out.
