i dont know much about trannys (lol transmission.. everytime i type tranny i cant help but think about something other than a transmission) but it would seem that a transmission with thicker gears would be stronger, the ax-15 is moderately small.

one of these days im gonna by a wrecked Tj and do something like this...might just do a V8 (IMO power over MPG's )

what Im actually most worried about is messing with the airbags, how hard are they to actually remove and reinstall? I hear if you leave the battery disconnected for 24 hours or something it discharges the airbag capacitor.
and are they just plugged in?

I have heard stories where mechanics die by accidentally setting off the airbags.

Imagine how much power you would have with 44's and 4.56's!

congratulations on a brand new looking jeep for less then 10k!

I didn't even read it I just crawled it on moral alone cummins keeps the earth in it's correct orbit!!

PS Tweak that motor already so the guys that don't think a 4BT can grenade a 44 can see the pictures of what that little hamster will do

the ax-15 is rated to roughly 300ftlbs of torque. give or take 25-50ish. it is a medium duty transmission similar to the nv3500 or nv3550.

Lookin good! I always thought Jeep should have offered a diesel motor option from the factory..this is on my list for when the I6 dies..or an LSx.

How's the diesel sound when the tops off cruising?? I think it may get annoying after a while..DDing it. I'm not too picky tho.

Great looking build! I'm actually saving up for this swap myself!

I was wondering, did your front springs sag at all after the swap? If so, how much?

I've been dreaming of a diesel swap ever since I have heard of it. Do you think that the 32RH would handle the 4BT?

just disconnected the battery, didnt have any problems, they were the last things to get connected again.
just treat them like loaded weapons and you will be fine
