Jeep Information

Hey, first post here and i have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, its the 4.0. Ive had it about 2 years now and at 229k i have noticed reverse is acting up and kicks out backing up hills sometimes or backing hard, and ive read online that these 42re’s are common to go out. I was wondering if i could go to a pick a part and grab a 4wd trans w the transfer case and get the rear driveshaft as well from a 2003 4wd Laredo ... will the rear driveshaft bolt up to my rear axle ?? Later i will grab a front axle and probably go ahead and get the front driveshaft as well from the same jeep when getting the transmission if i can. Please let me know. Im wanting to 4wd swap it but only get the transmission part done with for now and work on the front axle swap later. Btw, ive rebuilt the motor already and have a good bit into it all around so id like to keep this one. Let me know. Thanks, Andrew.
