'97 - '02 TJ Auto trans differences?

The 32RH Auto trans in the '98 TJ bit the dust so time for a new/used trans. I saw the standard trans specs on the Sticky Note at the top of the forum, which says the 32RH ws used from '97 thru '02.
Does anyone know if there are any differences between the years that need to be considered - electrical connections, fasteners, etc? I'd hate to be in the middle of the install and find it doesn't work for some reason.

My 2002 has a 32RE, I'm not sure what other years have.

Service manual for 2002 shows a 32RH. Doesnt make sense since that was the last year of the trans to change it to electronic shifting but I have seen stranger things from Chrysler. Car-part.com also shows 98 -2002 interchangeable.

They should all be the same. Mine was when I had to replace it due to a cracked transmission housing. Why not just have it rebuilt? I had the "new to me" trans rebuilt for under $1,000 and installed it myself.

What makes you believe it's a 32RE? The last member here who thought he had a 32RE eventually figured out that he had the normal 32RH afterall.
