You have the 2.5 so unless a conversion has been done you have the AX5.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

I'm guessing no on the conversion. Judging by the lift quality I'd be watching out for other things done in an... Interesting manner...

yes, do a tune up and change ALL the fluids.. that means not only oil but do your differentials, tranny and transfer case. Search these forums or just google it. You'll find what you need.

Like the others said, 2nd gear doesn't just "do that"... changing the fluid "might" help it but don't quote me on that.

other than that, welcome to the Jeep club!

I was thinking the same thing but trying to be nice. My thoughts were with those shackles there is no way the PO had enough brain sells to upgrade the trans.

Cosmetically it's a nice looking rig. I've always believed it's easier to fix mechanical items than stem the tide of cancer.

Well hopefully it stays strong on me. And with this 4 banger and these tires it doesn't have any power but that isn't a big deal because this is my summer crusier

Looks nice. I'd get some respectable length shackles and a 1" body lift so you can still roll with those tires.

That's just what I would do though.

Here is some good reading:

The ride wasn't good I haven't drove it in a week just got new shackles in today along with the 1" body lift so it will look a lot better and not ride so damn rough and weird

"Double clutching" is when you push the clutch petal in, knock the transmission out of gear, release the clutch petal all the way, then push it back in, and complete the downshift. It lets the syncho's catch up, and make it smoother to engage the gear.

Nice Jeep though, I'd love to see some pics when you get the lift swapped out.

Good luck!

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

I have been having to do that and didn't know what it was called. Sometime I would have to start it with it in first to be able to drive.
