transmission type

I have an 88 wrangler with a 2.5 and it's a 5 speed and I plan on putting in a bigger engine, most likely a V8 and I know that there are adaptor kits for it and I know where to find those kits, but I need to find out what kind of transmission that I have befor I get an adaptor kit or deside to get a new transmission, is there an identification # on it or something, I havn't taken the time to check it out sense it is at a shop getting it's computer rebuilt for the 5th time, any help would be greatly appreatiated!!

I am the owner of the "Jeepvette," My Life-Long Project is complete-Just in time for it to provide my new bride and I some financial relief, see the awesome video's and pics at my website: I plan to get my wife and I a more family friendly Jeep, you'll understand if you go to the site : )

ok.. you have the AX-5 tranny.. basically a paperweight

if you go V8.. (or with any engine swap for that matter) the best manual tranny you can do is the NV4500. Advance adaptors has a kit for this swap. there are many other trannys you could use, but if you're stayin with manual, the nv4500 has the best granny and top end gears for both great crawling and gas saving speeds.. plus it's outta dodge and gm 1-ton pickups, so you know it's bulletproof in a jeep setup.
