A little background: 1993 xj, 4.0, ax-15, np-231. Basically stock DD/ hunting rig but I still like to go out and play in it sometimes.
My xj started its life out with an aw4 and it handled great off road but it started slipping (pushing 300k at the time so it wasn't unexpected). I prefer manuals and it being a DD i figured i'd make the swap. Now that I've had a chance to play around with both transmissions off road i absolutely love the manual and i dont think i could go back. But...
I've read a lot of posts on here from people who say they don't/didn't like their ax-15 or other manual trans xj off road. Not looking to start an argument or anything I was just a little bored and wondering if there was anyone else out there like me? Or if not tell me why iI'm always curious to hear about other peoples experiences
