There are a number of tranmissions that will work with the right adapter and some $$. But then you might also need driveline alterations and so on. If you want to go cheap, look for a T4 and change the input shaft if needed. Or a T176 will bolt up, but drivelines will need to be changed. What about swapping in a AX15? It will bolt up with some minor alterations and a clocking ring. Or a NV3550 and so on. It really matter how much you want to spend.

Not sure about the booster.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.

Jeep shares a mounting pattern (where the trans mounts to the bell) with ford and some dodge. A borg warner t-18 would be ideal found in fsj's and ford pickups in the 60's and 70's maybe other eras too. Not sure about the booster

Play by the rules you're gonna miss all the fun

The Wagoneer booster is too big, won't fit.
