Re: Puegot trans to AX15 swap??
I have swapped in a Cherokee AX-15 into my '88. Pretty easy. I needed several brackets:T/C shifter, tranny shifter. Your skid plate may need to have two holes drilled for the AX-15. You also need a 23 spline T/C input shaft. I was able to get the entire 231 T/C for an additional $100 when I bought my AX-15 for $350. Also, if this is a XJ 231, you will need to redrill your T/C holes on the back of the tranny. Not a big deal. On Cherokees, they are at a 23 degree rotation, where the Wranglers are 13 degrees. Basically, you need to be able to rotate the T/C 10 degrees clock-wise. I made a template and hand drilled the new holes. I am sure glad I made the swap.
