I have a 2018 wrangler 6-speed manual. Is it possible to convert manual transmission to automatic? Does anyone have experience with the conversion?

I think you might come out cheaper if you can just trade for an automatic. In the old days it was a piece of cake to change one over. Today with all of the electronics involved it will probably be a nightmare.

I think you're right. It makes more sense to trade this one and get an automatic transmission.

And less time consuming also. I was looking at a manual, but since I was going to use my Jeep as a DD also, I went with the 8 spd. auto. So far I'm quite impressed with the way the transmission handles it's duties.

I've had/have both and the NEW 8 spd auto/w manual control is BY FAR, the best tranny portion of 4 wheel drive--on road/off road-
