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!


89 YJ, brand new to the family, working on basic mechanical stuff first. Bigger plans for later but don't tell the wife.

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?
