chrokee 5speed in a 2003 tj?

so i got a free 5 speed tranny out of a 91 cherokee, brand new clutch, tranny hads 60,000km on it. but my question is.. will it fit? my tj is currently a automatic. blech.... i know the chrokee tranny is not the same as what should be in there, it has the internal slave cylinder. not a big deal i can have that tranny in and out in under 2 hours (ive been timed :P ) so if the slave ever goes its no big for me. is there anything i need to look out for? will my tcase bolt to the tranny or will i have to use the case that is on it? will my driveshaft work for this tranny or will i have to change the slip yolk on the rear drive shaft? i know the clutch pedle with slave "should in theroy" bolt up but i dont know about my break pedle. anyone done this before? HELP!

I think its the computer side of things thats going to give you head aches. The TJ's PCM is going to always be looking for input from the TCM. I know there are ways around this and I think it involves finding a PCM from another 2003 TJ only manual. I believe the Cherokee trans was a little longer than the 42rle. I hope someone else can give you more detailed info,
Brian

Will work for Jeep parts...

also, there are some differences in splines between early model and late models, especially with how the tranny joins to the t-case. also, i believe the 91 manual tranny is internal slave, the newer TJ's used external slaves. i think there is enough differences you'd be better of sourcing a late model manual if you want to swap to a manual. also, as said, the 42RLE is heavily entrenched into the PCM, so you'll have some other compatibility challenges there. it's been done though....probably almost easier to buy a new Jeep though at that point.
