This covers all AMC (1954+) and Jeep (1946+) variants thru 1988, and those legacy designs retained by Chrysler after 1988. This includes:
- Jeep Cherokee XJ (1987–2001)
- Jeep CJ
- Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ (1987–2006)
- Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ and WJ (1993–2004)
- Jeep Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer
- AMC Eagle (not Chrysler marketed Eagle models)
- AMC Concord

Early AMC (1955-1971) Automatic
|Gears||Cooling||Engine Behind||Years Used|
|M-8||Borg-Warner||Iron||3||oil/water||196/250/287/327||1957–1964 (196 thru 62)|
- Note that "M-10" is not the actual Borg-Warner designation. This is a variation of the M-8 that uses a TV (Throttle Valve) cable instead of a vacuum modulator to control internal transmission pressure. The TV cable also serves as a "kick-down" control when fully pushed in under a predetermined speed.
- The M-36 and 37 have provisions for an external oil/water or oil/air cooler. Heavy duty/towing configurations came from the factory with oil/water cooling instead of air cooling, and an aftermarket air/air cooler can be added... some were added by dealers at purchasers request.
Early Jeep Automatic (19xx-1971)
The Buick 350 V8, 225 V6, and AMC 327 V8 engines used a nailhead pattern TH400 (also known as unipattern as it was used by many other manufacturers such as Rolls Royce and Jaguar with an adapter ring) during the mid to late-1960s. The AMC engines also used the TH400 with an adapter from 1969 until late 1973 when AMC bought a TH400 case with the AMC pattern already cast. The TH400 AMC case was used until the end of 1979 model production.
The 232 AMC Straight-6 engine used in 1968 to 1971 Jeeps likely used the Borg Warner automatic (they were in the Jeep DJ "Postal Jeeps", but these vehicles were 2WD) as they were a smaller pattern than the AMC V8 until 1972.
Late AMC/Jeep (1971-2006) Automatic
AMC phased out the use of the Borg-Warner Shift-Command transmissions when the company transitioned to using the Chrysler Torqueflite. AMC branded the Torqueflites as the Torque Command using the previous naming convention - both the A-727 and A-904 (including the later 999 derivatives) were used with the addition of the Aisin-Warner 4 (AW4) used with the Jeep XJ series. Jeep vehicles throughout the 1970s used the GM Turbo Hydramatic 400 - the use of the GM transmission goes back to 1965 where Kaiser-Jeep installed the Buick V8 (with the full size Wagoneer and J-trucks) and the Buick V6 in the Jeep CJ series.
