Comments: Not that great of a Transmission, I've had nothing but problems with it but one input isn't like the input of 100 people.

Comments: Stock tranny, I can't complain yet. I'll probably keep it and install the Rubicrawler to get my ratio down.

Price: $2,850.00
Pros: 3 speed with overdrive
Cons: Not very tough, clunky, harsh shifts once in a while
Recommended? No

Comments: I bought my TJ with 12k miles on it, and the transmission seemed fine at the time, but a year and a half later when it had 28k on it the thing started shifting funny when coming to a stop. (It would neutral from second then drop into first)
My dad has worked for Chrysler for going on 30 years, and is currently in the plant where this tranny is built. So I was able to talk directly with the engineers and guys at the plant to help figure out what was goin on.
Well after a dealer maintenance dept, and 2 tranny shops said the L/R clutch packs were goin out, I ended up replacing it for $2850!
Needless to say I was a bit upset.
I contacted Jeep customer service thru email and phone, and they said they couldn't help out at all.
Really Jeep? With that low of mileage, the thing shouldn't have even needed serviced yet by your standards. The least they could've done was chip in a bit.

Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As I said, it doesn't have the proper requirements for passing other vehicles. It stands up to all towing requirements though.

Price: $20,000.00
Pros: Gives me more than one ratio between my engine and wheels.
Cons: Doesn't have a Rubicrawler
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Came with the Jeep. Pretty fond of it. I'd like a tranny temp gauge and cooler but all good things in time. For now I'm more than happy wheelin an automatic

Price: $15,000.00
Pros: It's an auto with OD
Cons: OD is too tall, it's a clunky trans but it's not so bad
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It's an okay transmission, if it wasn't a pain to swap in an AW4 or manual I would have done it already. Clunky and slow shifting with a stupid tall OD ratio.

I entered 15,000 for the price because that's how much I paid for my Jeep that it came in

Pros: Heavy paperweight
Cons: piece of crap.
Recommended? No

Comments: 1. Piece of crap transmission.
2. rebuilt under warranty, still a piece of crap.
3. shift points are horrible
4. not reliable
5. proper maintenance doesn't help, your best bet is to drive it till it dies, which wont be long.
6. worst transmission jeep ever put in a wrangler
7. does not belong behind a 4.0L

Price: $16,500.00
Pros: Auto with overdrive
Cons: overdrive a lil weak.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I purchased the jeep about 5 months ago. 3 days after i installed my 33's and the jeep still has 3.73 gearing. Up to about 50 the overdrive does fine with the 33's but on the express way i turn it off as it is a little annoying sometimes with hills and the cruise control on. All in all i recommend this tranny when you look, it is not the dog everyone says it is.
