Default Aw4 swap into a grand cherokee?

If you own a zj you know the 42re is a junk trans mission however I've heard of people swapping the aw4 into the grands? I was wondering if it's possible and what I would need for it. Help me please!

Just did 95zj/aw4 swap. Not a big deal. Posting a writeup later today.

93 and 94 zjs came with aw4s so you need early factory parts

Only the really early 93 zj had an aw4 so making an xj work seems more doable

Use this unless you want to run all factory stuff.

Even with that you still need the factory shifter?
