Hi all! I have a 1995 yj with newly rebuilt automatic 3 speed transmission hooked up to the 2.5 4 cyl. I want to upgrade to the 4.0 6 and have found one from a 1999 Cherokee sport.

Is this a direct (or nearly direct swap)into the transmission I have?

Is $600 fair for a running 6 cylinder from that year with about 120k on it?

Any other thoughts are super welcomed.

Thanks!!

No, you will need the 6 cylinder YJ transmission. Completely different bolt pattern for a 2.5.

$600 seems fine for a known good engine.
