I did not drop the tranny at all. I was able to torque everything to spec!
I used the same 8 point 5/16th socket. I had my complete front axle off the Jeep at the time and had no need for an extension.

What does having your front axle off have anything to do with adjusting your transmission?? To get to the band inside the transmission it is almost impossible without a short extension or a deep well socket....

The adjuster for the front band is on the outside. I had the front axle off for a completely different reason. But that gave me easier access to that area. I'm not suggesting to pull the front axle to do this adjustment.

Try getting a torque wrench on the adjuster while you sit IN FRONT of the transmission (looking towards the rear). You will see that the front axle, driveshaft makes it hard for you to get in there, All I meant is that with the front axle off it might have given me access to that area from a better, more convenient position. Maybe that's why I did not need an extension. I don't know as I never adjusted it before.

Yes, mine is different than yours: 4.0 Laredo with a 5.9 Limited interior. Which of course has nothing to do with access to transmission.

You don't need the extension for that adjuster anyway.... With drive shaft or without.... The drive shaft wasn't in my way at all... But okay... You need it for the one that you pull the pan to get... Thats what I was talking about using the extension for.

That's odd... I have a 4.0 in my limited... The limiteds came in 4.0, 5.2, and 5.9 supposedly in my year... My insurance says special addition on.... So that's got to make it cool ??

So, with all the adjusting going on the 42re front band, what is the general consensus for backing out the adjuster? Some say 2, manuals say 3... I have it at 3 and think it is too loose.. If I go 2, will anything become damaged?

buy a torx socket set it'll have it on the set. I don't remember what size. It will be hesitant shifting out of 2nd sometimes too. A lot of different things can be caused by band adjustment

Areyouserious?


As for the socket. A regular torx will not do it. You may as well just go and buy a spline socket set. It'll do 8, 6, 12, and e-torx heads as well as partially rounded bolts.
