WJ Manual Transmission Conversion

Anyone heard of someone converting their WJ into manual transmission? I found one guy online who replaced his manual 5 speed AX-15 for an AW-4 that he picked from a 2001 XJ to put into his 1997 TJ.


I'm wondering if the reverse is possible, using the 5 speed AX-15 manual transmission to replace the 42RE TorqueFlite automatic transmission in a WJ with a I6 and a NV-242 transfer case?

It seems a rebuilt or used AX-15 transmissions aren't all that hard to find, Jeep has been using them to put into TJs forever and XJs, YJs, MJs for awhile. And for one year in the ZJ, as well as some Toyota trucks. Not only would this work wonders for fuel economy, but also, take full advantage of the torque of the I6.
