Price: $100.00
Pros: 5 manual gears
Cons: I have no cons
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I decided to install this AX-15 that I pulled out of my scrap XJ. I used to have an AW-4 but wanted to make the switch to a manual transmission. I understand there are a lot of off road guys that prefer the automatic over the manual, but I feel I have a much better driving experience using the manual transmission over the automatic. I really switched this based on personal preference, but if you do decide to, you will not be disappointed. The AX-15 is a well built and relatively strong transmission for the 4.0L motor and application. The installation was MUCH easier than I had anticipated, and I am not a superior mechanic by any stretch of the imagination. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a better driving experience.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Good at getting unstuck!
Cons: The low gears are sluggish.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The low gears are sluggish. When a red light turns green I hit 2nd gear almost 3rd by the time I exit the intersection. This could be partly due to my oversized tires though.

BUT... when I got myself stuck in mud on an incline I just popped it into reverse and rolled right out!

Pros: Tough transmission
Cons: Pretty noisy, even in neutral.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Anything besides that Peugeot BA10/5 transmission is an improvement. Finally saved up enough money to get the AX-15 with everything I needed to put her in. I've been very happy ever since.

Pros: smooth shift pattern and better low end power
Cons: moved shift pattern back 1 inch
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Old Peugot transmission gave me nothing but problems even after a rebuild. Upgrading to the ax-15 has given me a smooth shift pattern, better low gear power and a quiter ride. Also will ensure parts are available if I ever need to repair it.

Price: $1,000.00
Pros: Good ratios very strong. I'm pretty rough on it. Hasn't let me down yet.
Cons: None that I know of
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This transmission hasn't let me down yet and I've been pretty rough on the shifting as it has been my first manual and I haven't had any problems with it at all. People say that they can't handle the power of a 4.0 let alone a v8 but mine holds the 6 cyl easy and I'm about to throw a mild 302 in it that's putting out about 300 hp not sure on the torque. Well see how it really holds up. Maybe I'll take her wheeling.

Price: $0.01
Pros: Its a five speed, shifts smooth for the most part, puts plenty of power to the wheels
Cons: Second and thrid syncros fail every now and then
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Trans was included with jeep. Not bad overall, sometimes it doesn't go right into second gear when shifting up and I may get a little grinding and when downshifting from forth it doesn't like to go into third. Has good gearing IMO. What more can you ask for from a trans with 190k miles?
