Jeep Wrangler Transmission

Jimmy writes: I have a 68K mi, 2003 Jeep Wrangler with a six cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. I’d like o put in a manual transmission instead of the automatic. Is it hard to do, and is it expensive?

Mike:
Jimmy, The body, the wiring, the electronics, the suspension, the emissions, the transfer case, the differentials, the drive shafts, and even the pedals are different between the automatic and the manual. You would have to do so many modifications that it would be thousands cheaper to sell the one you have and buy one with a manual transmission. This is a can of worms you do not want to open.
