4th Transmission

610 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?

That sounds like a bit much. Yes it is true that with 33's the AX-5 is a bit weak. But 4.... Something does't smell right there.
I have a 91 4 dinger with about 100K on the first trans. And it is just starting to show signs of giving up. Now if your Jeep has 300K on it, I would understand. How many miles do you have
