6 Speed Manual to Automatic

Sure it's been covered but after a lame search of the forum here's the question.

I have an 08 JKU 6 speed. Thinking of installing an automatic 4 speed I can get from a 2010.
Has anyone done this?
Pitfalls?
Cost?

If there is a thread please point me at it.

Thanks
Have fun out there

Trade it in.

Easier.

Would need top of my head an Automatic PCM &TCM new drive shafts since automatic is probably longer.

You forgot about the simplest thing...

The shifter. There may also be a new console necessary. Oh, and new accelerator and brake pedals. Wiring harnesses... who the heck KNOWS what else. Instrument cluster maybe???

Honestly, it'll cost more to swap than trade.

Re: 6 Speed Manual to Automatic

I was in your same spot, I traded a '13 manual for a '14 auto. In the long run it's easier and more reliable. Just IMO.

He has a point, the auto (pre 2012) is terrible.
