How many miles can I expect out of a 2004 Overland 545RFE transmission? Has anyone made it to 200k without a rebuild? Mine has 140k on it, and had fluid changes at 55k and 97k. So far I haven't had any problems.
140k is twice the miles I got out of mine before a rebuild. Wasn't even close to happy with the situation. Stealership said it was 5 quarts overfill. Merchants (who did ALL maintenance on it) said no way! Chrysler told me to go **** myself (if I'm allowed to paraphrase). Ended up costing me $2500 for a rebuild.
AAMCO did do an awesome job on it. Been rock solid for the last 130k, though I am thinking about taking back to them for an inspection and fluid change.
Mine is still good at 170k with proper maintenance but to be honest I've never been too impressed with it, seems very jerky and almost like it has to make up its mind before downshifting when I floor it.
Mine just died at 128K. I've owned it for only a couple of years, so no idea if there was any maintenance done to it before. I changed the fluid and filters right after I bought it. I got 20K of usage before it let go.
2002 WJ Overland - 4.7HO - 231tc - 6" Clayton - 285/75-16 Cooper STT - ProComp 5129 wheels - Kevin's Offroad Belly Skid and Rock Sliders - JKS Track Bar and Disconnects - ProtoFab bumpers
128k on my wife's WJ, she's owned it since 40k. It may be overkill, but I usually change the filters and fluid every 2 years, regardless of mileage. The only time we ever had any trans problems was when the TPS went bad.
