Hey guys, I ain't a tranny dude so I got a serious question.
I might be able to procure a 42RE behind a 318 out of a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee for under $100. What is the difference between the 42RE and the 46RE? I know with the 46 vs 47 it is a matter of better parts. Everything else on the outside is the same. Would this be true of the 42...just a really doped down 46RE?
If that is the case....I could use it as a spare tranny and beef the living hell out of it to make it into a 46 for the Ram or put it into my XJ behind my spare 318!!!
Thanks guys! I also asked a tranny friend and he said they would both bolt up, but like you guys said, it is physically smaller. It can't fit the other stuff in it that the 46RE+ have. Though it won't work as a spare for the Ram, I can use it in my XJ project.
I just hope I can get it before someone else does.
