5.2 magnum ???

Alright I found a Grand Cherokee for $800 low miles with a 5.2 L. Except it has an automatic. I figured I can use the computer, seats, engine, drive shafts. I love my nv3500 manuel and dont want an automatic can I get some sort of adaptor or do I have to use the auto tranny. The Auto PCM probally wont work with my TJ transmision. Or would it better to find a dakota manuel. Can you guys give a little advise. I dont know what to buy so tell me what you think is the right direction to follow.

i wouldnt do it in to you 02 i would sell it and get a 97=2000 its alot easier of a swap since you have pci bus instead of ccd bus the harness is really easy i did mine in about 6 hours with some help from mitchelle online wire diagrams and a good soldering iron if you use yours it is going to cost a great deal more you are going to have a find a bell housing out of a 94-99 dodge dakota 3.9 with a manual trans that bell housing matches yours perfect then you will need a 5.2l clutch kit and flywheel and the really hard part find a 02 or 03 dodge ram 5.9l auto computer since they only used the pci bus with the auto and didnt ever use pci bus with a 5.2l and have http://www.bgchrysler.com/tuning-jee...onversion.aspx those guys flash it costs about 350 plus s&h i put a 5.9l in my wrangler and kept my 3550 and love it! the thing is amazing so much more power and when i keep my heavy foot out of it i get pretty good gas mileage also you will need to fab your own motor mounts and cut off your jeeps and full custom exhaust i used summit block hugger headers they will work for yours since the 5.2 and the 5.9 have the same head. if i have confused you with any of this please email me and I'll try and help you out if i can v8 wrangler is amazing!
