    Default Auto Transmissions

    One day the trans in my YJ is gonna have to be replaced. Although for a long time I said I would never put an auto in it, I'm considering it now. Personally I would like a NP435 but the wife doesn't drive a manual yet. If I were to convert to an auto, what are the recommended ones?


    Requirements/Guidelines/Extra Info

    -Keeping the 4.0 (dreaming of stroker one day or maybe 4BT)
    -Trail rig
    -Don't want a whole bunch of extra weight or trans length
    -As few electronics as possible on trans (or none)
    -Easily adapted or modded to Jeep frame/tub/crossmembers/skid plates


    Any ideas y'all?

    700R4 Bro...and you don't have to screw with the hassle or expense of a computer for the tranny, but you still have a decent 1st gear and an overdrive. Also, adapters are readily available from a number of sources.

    I have had a few guys recently mention the 727 Torqueflite? Anyone here have experience with that transmission?

    727 is a great tranny. The old MOPAR muscle cars (440, 426 HEMI) used the TF727! It WILL handle torque!
