6cyl. to an AX-5 ?
 
A buddy of mine wants to take the 4 banger out of his 95 YJ and put in a 258. Will this bolt up to an AX-5? How well will this trans. hold up to the 258? Also what would a good used AX-15 be worth?

Thanks

nope it won't work, the ax-5 only works with the 4 cly, the AX-15 will work with the 258 or the 4.0L and the ax-5 is a light duty tranny anyway, it wouldn't be worth your time ...

Isn't the AX-15 a relatively light duty tranny also?

From what I have read the ax-5 is for sure a light duty trans, and the ax-15 is just a notch above it. The problem is this friend of mine is set on the 258. It does seem like a waste of time,but he just wanted to see if it would work.It doesn't seem like a good idea, but he just wanted to explore the options.

Once again thanks for your input

Actually, it will work, depending on what you want to do with it. In 1989, Chrysler switched from the BA/10 to the
AX-15 in 6 cyl models. During the switch over some 6 cyls. got the AX-5 (mine included). I now have 129,000
miles on it, with 31 inch mud terrains, I would not go with bigger tires than that. I have been doing quite a bit of
wheeling with it and have had no problems.
