Default Trans Swap?

I have a 97 XJ with the manual trans in it.. It's nice and all, but I really want to swap an automatic in it. What do i need other then another transmission to do this? do i need a different computer, or wiring or anything?

Wiring can be done with a cheap trans control box I think like $100 or so. New crossmember Mabee drive shafts

That's probably what I would do. No shortage of XJ's with auto trans.
