AX5 needed (or a shop to rebuild) in Austin/SM.

Like the title says, I am looking for an AX5. Mine sounds like it is about to blow up, and I'd rather find one to buy and swap , rather than have my ride down a few days for repair/rebuild. If nobody has one they would part with, do you have any shop recommendations? Thanks!

Jimmy

87 Gear in San Antonio is #1.
Also a Jeep enthusiast.
Talk to the owner, Eric.

Jeep Masters on South Congress Avenue in Austin is a pretty good place. They have always been fair and upfront with me.

Eagle transmission in Pflugerville is a pretty good shop. The owner (when I went) was building a v8 TJ at the time I think. Not sure if he's still there. Prices were pretty good. everything they rebuilt (auto tranny in 96 xj) has held up just fine 4 years into it now.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I had found one in SA that I was supposed to pick up today, but the guy flaked out and never returned my calls or emails. I've decided that since this is my DD, I can't afford to have her down for very long. Therefore, I'm going to order a rebuilt tranny from Southwest Standard Transmissions. $700 shipped with a one year unlimited mileage warranty doesn't seem like too bad of a deal.
