identify what type of tranny

I purchased my first Jeep back in December, and I am new to this forum. I have been replacing damaged/worn parts to bring her back to life. I have gotten the gears in the 5spd tranny stuck while in reverse. The clutch will engage/disengage, but will not come out of gear(5th I think). So I am trying to identify if I have the Peugeot or Aisin. I have a label on the passenger side with date and 2 sets of numbers: 8953005848 and 077167. Thanks for any advise.

Brian

does it look like this, with the steel spacer between the two aluminum case halves or is the case split horizontally?

Brian - Your 6 cylinder 1988 would have the Peugeot BA/10 tranny.
The fact that there is an ID plate on the passenger is also a dead giveaway.

I have the jeep at a friend's shop at the moment "crackedcornish" but I believe it is split between two halves. and from what "kloppk" stated..my fears of it being a BA/10 seem true. I am on a tight budget after fixing so many things already. That being said, should I look for a used AX-15 to put in? I saw the sticky on the swap. Thanks for the help.

the Peugeot tranny isn't as strong as the AX-15...so if costs between a repair and a replacement were close, and I had to make the choice between fixing a stock part that broke once already, or upgrading to a stronger part, well that's a pretty easy choice to make

sounds like your ba10 is stuck in gear. Some people have had luck in getting it unstuck via the shifter area without removing the transmission. The rails can be manipulated with a stout screwdriver. I would try this before pulling it out. I would source an ax15 or an NV transmission for the future though.

Update: gear shifter is broke and metal is all inside. I am not mechanic so I have to rely on a friend. His tranny tech told me that I would have to replace both driveshaft's, transfer case, and bell housing to go to the AX-15..about 3k to do it. I am working on my mechanic skills, but time is always by enemy. I think that $3k to swap out is too high. Any thoughts?

$3k is nuts for an AX15 swap. You don't need a new t-case, just a 23 spline input gear for it. Even for the inexperienced it can be swapped out and reassembled in a couple of hours. Or get lucky and find one that came behind one originally for cheap. I haven't done the swap but I don't remember anyone having to lengthen/shorten driveshafts. Do a search for it to see what is involved.
