LOL: Texas has a habit of messing with itself! So, if you're contemplating installing a '97 transmission in a '98 XJ, pls let the forum know how it goes.

Yup, to avoid a headache start by reading the first page of this thread. -

Says a guy who also learned the hard way by installing an 98 AW4 in his previously manual 89. I did my homework and knew it would bolt up, and when wondering why it upshifted real fast, discovered after the fact that the rear speed sensor was different.

Re: Everything you ever wanted to know about the AW4

You guys aren't alone, I learned all of this (including finding a few posts in other threads by lawsoncl) after driving from Mass to central NJ to cut an entire 99 XJ to pieces in a tiny muddy yard to get the drivetrain out so I could buy it since my 96 had a bad trans.

... And then got it home and found out it wouldn't work as a bolt in and it was my daily (otherwise I would have started the conversion since in my case I was going the easy way, I couldn't afford it being down past the end of a weekend), so I bought another trans from a 94 and put that one in instead.

Re: Everything you ever wanted to know about the AW4

Perhaps we need a thread with a contest to see who has the most expensive $1700 XJ in the world. Pretty sure I'd be in the running.

All kidding aside, I have a freshly rebuilt AW-4 w/o ISS for sale -- asking $700 FOB, which is half what I paid to have it rebuilt. Reasonable offers considered. North Florida. May or may not be plug 'n' play into a '97 or earlier. Ya pay's ur money and ya takes ur chances. Step right up: the game ain't hard and no one's barred.
