Re: NV3550 Tranny?

Essentialy, the 3550 is a lighter version of the 4500 (you know the one in 1/2 ton trucks the other in 3/4 ton trucks kinda thing). Also 3550s are now the OE manual transmission in 4.0L TJ. The 3550 does not have compound first gear ...something close to 4:1 I think.
I do not know a great deal about either. Sorry. The reputation seems to be good for both.
I have a buddy with 3550 in his TJ. He runs 33s and rear locker for DD and semi-crazy off road use - not hard core. Has no problem or complaint other than that gear noise thing when idle in neutral.


Note: loose/lose not used, spelling is decent, conversational english - not formal prose, information is provided, a point is made, experience is related - all three done clearly ...no less, if you can't take a joke take a bow [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img], verbose? probably

Don't consider getting one from an early 2000 TJ, they have problems. Read my post.

Re: NV3550 Tranny?

Matt, I'd be interested in communicating with your contact for the NV3550 transmission. Do you know what part of Canada he's from?

My old Peugeot transmission has just about had it. It's getting hard to shift in the cold weather. Replacement transmissions in Canada are very expensive.

Thanks

Ralph...
