update on the transmission

It was indeed the governer pressure solenoid. it still hunts gears occasionally and i suspect it needs a band adjustment but i have that slated to be done.

A ZJ with a bad transmission is worth scrap.

You need to replace both the pressure sensor and the solenoid. They work in tandem to shift the transmission. One tells the pcm what the pressure is then the pcm tells the solenoid to engage that will shift the trans.
