The Aisin Warner AX5 transmission was a standard shift, five-speed transmission introduced in the 1984 XJ Cherokee Jeep, and found in the 1984 to 2006 Jeep XJ, YJ & TJ models. It is a light-duty transmission found behind the AMC 150 (2.5L) I4 engine. It was also found behind the GM 2.8L 60 degree V6 (early XJ only).

The AX5 is prevalent, but sadly it's strength is minimal, making it a questionable off-road transmission. Failures behind even stock engines are not uncommon.

The AX5 is a split-case, top shifting, overdrive transmission with the shifter being located in the rear section of the transmission. The AX5 is fully synchronized in all gears. All gears are helically cut.

The AX5 transmission case is 15-5/8" long. It features a cast aluminum case with a cast-iron mid-plate. The case is ribbed and features the shifter in the rear quarter of the assembly. In the vein of newer transmissions, the AX5 uses dowel pins for bellhousing alignment.

The Jeep AX5 has a 21 spline output shaft for connecting to the transfer case input shaft. The AX5 was used with an internal slave/throwout assembly up through the 1994 model year. In 1995, a more conventional slave cylinder and cross-arm were used. The input shaft is a 14 spline and its stickout length is 7-1/2".

The AX5 looks similar to the AX15 and are they are occasionally confused in identification as well as interchange.

The Jeep AX5 was factory-married to the Jeep Jeep New Process (aka New Venture) Model 231 transfer case.

Pros: can be found in most street level tranny repair shops and magazines at a reasonable price.. why?? see the cons.
Cons: Everything.
Recommended? No

Comments: this is a class "A" piece of S@*T tranny that fails Alot...
The 15 is a stronger and all around better made transmission but unfortunately isnt designed or prescribed for the 4 banger YJ's. that is unless you do a few mods here and there. if they could only design a simpler case to match up with the YJ, life would be a whole lot better.

Comments: Came stock on my YJ. Not a great transmission, but it does what it needs to. I will probably change the transmission eventually, but for now, this one is okay.

Pros: Its a Transmission It works
Cons: Weak Pops out of gear easily
Recommended? No

Comments: This transmission came stock on my Jeep Wrangler. I'm unsatisfied with its performance and lack of 6th o/d gear. (which the 4 banger DESPERATELY NEEDS.) Its strength is questionable and is always scary to try anything technical with it.
