Price: $0.02 Pros: Free with the jeep and had overdrive. Fine with the 258 or 4 cylinder? Cons: Not capable of surviving a small block chevy and 33s. Wonder if it could last behind a stong I6 Recommended? No
Comments: This transmission has disintegrated twice now. The last time I was simply motoring down the road in 5th @ 55 mph and it let go. If you have one and make any changes to the drivetrain that increases the load on this thing, get ready to rebuild or replace it.
Comments: Just broke it, but that led to an upgrade with a beefed up kit. The t-5 has a reputation for being weak, and if it fails again I will probably upgrade to a T-18. However, the failure was due to the fact I was playing around on a hard surface, and with Detroit's and alloy axels, that can turn out bad, and it did! I have had no further problems since installing the upgraded gear kit.
