Price: $1,200.00
Pros: High overdrive ratio, smooth shifts
Cons: Picky with its fluid, torque converter locks up too much
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Many people hate this transmission, but I like it. The .69 OD ratio allows me to regear to really low gears and still turn a decent rpm on the highway. As far as reliability, my friend has one in his TJ with 180k with no problems.

Price: $1.00
Pros: It held up to the previous owner using it as a tow rig for 22ft boats in his yard for 5 years.
Cons: It held the shift until you let up on the gas or gambled on the high RPMs on the motor.
Recommended? No

Comments: What more can I say? It didn't break down, but it wasn't awesome either. It was a very reliable weak transmission.

Price: $0.10
Pros: came with the jeep, good in stop an go traffic, don't have to shift while wheeling
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Don't have much to say about it. Gear shift cable came disconnected when the piece that holds it to the transmission broke. No idea why that happened. Otherwise it has been good.

Price: $0.01
Pros: has over drive. good transmission
Cons: sometimes slips into a turn. Loves OD
Recommended? No

Comments: It is a decent tranny. I feel that it is paired with an underpowered engine though. And it loves over drive but that doesnt really bother me because you can just turn the OD off
