Default Transmission Identification Numbers & Location

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 42RE Transmission. I was told that certain transmission is hard to find. I have looked everywhere & I cannot find one. Does anyone know where I could find or order one? I live in Missouri. Thank you.

Welcome to CF!

Google it and you'll get all kinds of places to buy a rebuilt one. That transmission was used in all 4.0 6 cylinder Grand Cherokee jeeps until 98, then they were still used with modifications after that. The only major change was the speed sensor was moved internally in 99. They are NOT rare. Finding a good USED one is tough though.

If you can remove it yourself you can drop it off at any trans place and have it rebuilt.Its cheaper that way of you drop off the jeep and let them do all the work things get pricey fast.

Welcome to the forum!

The transmission in my ZJ failed, so I rebuilt it myself. I added many aftermarket upgrades to make it stronger. It is working great.

One point I'm going to warn you about. If you DO pull it out, leave the converter ON THE TRANSMISSION. The input shaft can get damaged by leaving it on the engine and especially trying to put it back together that way! Pulling the t/case first is the best.
