4th Transmission

612 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  minnesota68
I have a 92 Jeep Wrangler with the 4cyl and AX5
transmission with a 2 ½ inch lift and 33 x 12.5 tires.

I recently talked to the PO and he told me that he had put 2
transmissions in the Jeep and that is why he got rid of it. I am
fixing to put my second one in also.

I know the AX5 is very weak but I want to know is 4
transmissions in roughly 4 years anywhere close to normal?
The PO put the lift and tires on so what I am wondering is if
he did something that is causing the transmission to go every
little while, or if the tires are causing the transmission to go.

If the tires are the problem what size do I need to run to keep
the drive line intact? 30s or maybe 31s?

What is going on here?

What are the gears you have with those 33" tires to tall (307) and you may be over stressing the tranny. Normaly that would not be a real prob. but for the AX5 it is. OH!! its a 4 banger,,, you should have 410's. That is good if you have a 6 or 8 for the 33's but the 4 may need 456 for that sisze to keep it in the power band.
