Lllneed advice on making a 32rh engine brake like a manual

I have a 01 tj with 4.0 and 89 32rh. I want to be able to use my engine and gearing when traveling down steep hills to go slow instead of using my breaks. In the same manner you can use a manual transmission. Is this possible and how/what is needed? I've searched and I've been reading for days. But I can't find the specifics of what needs to be done. What needs to be purchased and installed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I think it could be possible if you install a switch for the lock up converter. But you will have to release the switch or when slowing down(to stop) you could stall the motor.
