Yes it can, I believe stu's offroad has a write up on it, also Jerry B, who is a mod on JF did the swap in his 97 TJ before it was stolen, so he should have so good advice for you. It's not bolt in.

Stu has four separate AW4 installs on his website. Three of them pertain to TJs.

AW-4 Transmission Swap - 1

As far as I know, Bob Bassett was the first to install an AW4 into a TJ. His install is here: http://www.thebassetts.us/Jeep/AW4/AW4.htm

Here's another good AW4 swap into a TJ: http://www.campbelljeeps.com/page004.html

one of those write-ups are mine.
i did some different stuff and that is worth reading but stu has most of the info you will need.

i don't know exactly what year the wiring gets more complicated, but 97's and 98's are not so much of a problem with an AW-4 out of an xj. i would try to find someone who has done it in a 01 to see what tranny and procedure they used.

it was a fun project and i am glad i did it.
