First of all that sounds lucarative. unless this vehicle has been abused and been through the worst. but even though if you had to replace both go to an indenpendent shop and maybe they could find you some good used parts that maybe will be in better condition. Get a second opinion before taking it to the wreckers. then if that is worst case scenerio then donate the car to the blind, theres a tax benefit in doing that.

Replace 1995 jeep wrangler catalytic converter

If it has flanges on both ends, just unbolt it and replace. If it has welded pipes you will need to cut it off and use adapter sleeves and clamps. Really not rocket worst, you may need to remove the hangars on the rear portion of the system to get enough room to install.

Winding noise in gear 1 ,automatic 1998 40l jeep wrangler

Your post is extremely difficult to understand...If I am reading it correctly, you have an internal whining noise from your automatic transmission. If so, the unit will need to be rebuilt. Likely the problem will continue to worsen 'till eventually it stops working.
Similar noise can also come from inside your transfer case. I'd check fluid levels in both before doing anything further, and get a second opinion before jumping right into any repair work.
