transmission swap

I have a 89 YJ with the 258 six and the Peugeot BA10/5 - 5 speed tranny that's making some noise and looking like it'll need attention soon. Gulp. What I'm wondering is about swaping in a Aisin AX15 - 5 speed offered in later models behind the six cylinder. I understand it has a tougher design and an external clutch slave cylinder. Anybody been there that can tell me if it's a bolt in swap or do I need to change bell housings and stuff? Help!

dalemac, i have a 87 YJ with the same set up,but i have one good thing ; i have a 231 T-case . what one do you have ? i thought about the AX15 as well but found out you will have to change the input shaft of the t-case and also you may need an adapter or different bell housing to mount the trans to engine . than i found out Advanced Adapters builds a World Class T5 , 5spd that directly replaces the crappy BA/10 and is stronger than the AX15 . my 4wheel drive hardware catalog has it for $1995. with a clutch disc incuded . it is a direct bolt in using your original clutch mechanisms . as soon as i get the cash i going to do the swap.. hope this helps a little . i won't tell your wife if you don't tell mine..ha ha ha wilhelm nj

That sounds like a great option. I like that a lot. It'll probably bite big time as I'm buying in Canada, eh. You got an address or web site where I can get some more info on it?
