View Full Version : Auto to manual swap parts

September 27th, 2017, 21:45
I've swapped from the aw4 to manual trans in my 2001 Cherokee. If using the factory console aside from the shift boot is there anything else I'll need to put it all together? I know on the older cherokees you needed a trim piece. Just curious about people who have already done the swap.

Thought there was some clips/screws for the shifter boot... I dunno, my '96 never had them. I know for a fact that I did have a second rubber boot/cover that was secured to the transmission tunnel with some sheet metal screws.

The 2001 engine computer might throw a code if it doesn't see the trans computer. You'll need to do something about the neutral/park switch so you can start it. I don't recall offhand, but I think the NSS grounded the wire from the starter relay.

You'll obviously need all the clutch stuff, rip put the key interlock wiring and solenoid, etc.

Ithe swap is done and running. I'm just curious of those who have the 2nd gen xj's aside from the shift boot is there a trim piece for the console. I still have the automatic console in it. What parts do I need for oem look

The OEM manual shift boot should come with a "rigid" base, that snaps in place into the center console. The rigid base is comparable to your stock Automatic Gate, snap in trim piece...

I see the piece listed for the 1st gen xj but not for the 2nd. All I see is the boot
