Great transmission. Friend's has taken a beating without complete failure yet. His only rattles slightly with over 200K when he swapped it in. Is now taking abuse of 35 inch rubber and showboating.

no leaks so far, just a little loose in the driveline connection and causes a bump when giving it torque.

Great Tans. Keep oil in them and they'll last forever. Adapted it over myself. Pretty straight forward conversion.

Installed the ax-15 with my 4.0 swap. I didnt rebuild it as i thought it was ok, but it makes more noise then i would like. The ax15 is an ok tranny. I would like to keep it for now and get an nv3550 to rebuild and put in its place. If you are doing a tranny swap to replace your ax-5 behind your 2.5 i would advise a rebuilt ax-15. As a daily driver in the north where you will see colder temps you will find the ax to be pretty cranky in the morning till it warms up, and when they get older there sincros tend to show there wear more so then other trannys. All in all its an ok trans, and alot better then the ba-10 that it replaced, but if you can swing it i would advise an nv3550.
