4th Transmission

611 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?

Who rebuilt the last two trannys? What went wrong with them? A good tranny man should be able to tell you if the type of failure is common or caused by some outside source of problem. That sounds excessive, unless the replacement trannys were made of worn out parts as well.
