    Default Installation of a 42RLE transmission in a JKU questions?

    I plan to install a re-manufactured 42RLE transmission in my 2011JKU, since my went out a few weeks ago at 74,000 miles. The plan is to also change out the cooler and lines as well. I am looking for any help with advice and tips about completing the removal and install? Any issues or problems other may have come across in the past?

    I haven't done this myself but I have watched a couple of times - I would think the install would be tough lining everything thing up and getting bolts back in some of those tight spaces but removal looks doable enough

    did any of you change out the torque converter with different specs other than stock and did it help drive-ability?
