Manual swap questions

I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler sport with the auto I know I need the trans and the pedal is there anything that is needed that doesn't stand out?

You'll need the hydraulic master and slave cylinder. This comes as one piece with the line. The petal mount is there. You will need to find a transmission that is set up for the transfer case. You'll need the clutch and internal shifting fork. You will also need the neutral safety switch and to remove the fuse so it will work.
You could leave the switch out this is what people do so they can start in gear on a hill.

So when I get my trans should I just pull the transfer case with it?

That's what I did. They used two different spline counts. 21 and 23. The 23 spline were used later.

Transmissions were BA10/5 which were made by Peugeot, they are total junk. Then there is the AX-15 which is an Asian warner trans. You can find these in Dodge Dakota, although here you would need a jeep belhousing if it is from a dodge. Then there is NV 3550. This is made by new venture gear, same company that makes your transfer case.

I doubt it but you could measure when I replaced the trans in my Comanche I got the front shaft with trans and case. This was easier for the wrecking yard with less to take apart

I would go to navak adapters and read up on transmissions. They have all the transmissions and the dimensions on their site

You'll also need a manual pcm, or send your pcm to someone who can tune out the auto programming. Your CEL will be on if not.

Personally, unless something is wrong with your present 32RH automatic transmission, I would consider it a downgrade to convert it to a 5-speed manual. I actually converted my '97 TJ's OE 5-speed manual transmission to the 32RH automatic for the major benefits automatics provide on tougher trails. Increased low-end torque and an infinitely low 1st gear ratio being two of the benefits of an automatic over a manual transmission.

Few truly understand automatics and have any idea of their significant benefits for offroading. The boost in offroad abilities the swap to the automatic gave were pretty much on the same level as when I had previously installed front & rear lockers.

Right now my 32 is slipping in and out of gear and it's grinding. I'm only going the manual route becouse there is one in my local junkyard.

Understandable. No used or rebuilt 32RH transmissions anywhere? You could order and receive it and get it swapped in before you could make the conversion to the manual transmission.

Not to mention you will also need a replacement 2000 model year ECM (engine computer) programmed for the 4.0L engine and manual transmission. Otherwise you'll be getting a constant Check Engine light from your current computer wondering why it's not getting the right signal back after it signaled the automatic transmission's torque converter to lock up and it not getting the required confirming information back that it did so.

Jerry, it will trip the CEL as soon as you power it up without the TCC connector plugged in. It doesn't need to try and lock it up.
