I've been waiting on this day for 3 years. I can finally say that she's done. Only thing left on my wish list is a winch and for everyday to be as nice.

Drives great. Just doing some break in driving before I take it to the beach or hill country.

Alright, I need some advice. Been driving it around for the last two weeks and am starting to think that I need to give some attention to the transmission. It has been kicking out of first gear and sounds like I have some marbles in third. The thought is to go the cheap route and rebuild the T5. My reason is I don't plan on beating the crap out of the jeep, maybe just taking it to the beach or some light to moderate trails. OR, I go ahead and purchase a AX-15 or NV3550 and mate it to the D300. Nice thing about the T5 is that I know how it sits now I wouldn't have to change anything. If I change to one of the others what changes would need to be made? Any and all advise is welcome.

Are you sure this would be the cheap route? I suppose it might be cheap compared to buying an NV3550, but I have never priced those.

If you rebuild the T5 yourself, it could still cost a few hundred dollars if you have to replace any major parts. If you're lucky then you can get away with new synchro rings and a standard rebuild kit.

Anyhow, I'm just thinking out loud. It may be that rebuilding it is the cheapest route, but I don't know.

Just a word of advice, I would have a good tranny shop do the tranny unless you can do it yourself. 8 years ago before I had a garage my front main bearing when out. I ordered a reman t-5 from auto zone for $999, I had to replace it 2 times under thier warranty, only because of the front seals being installed backwards.

I think I am going to go with rebuilding the T5. There is a guy here that said if I take it out and bring it to him that he would rebuild the transmission and put new seals in the D300 for 600. I think that is a fair price. I would like to have something that is a little stronger, but for what I am using it for, I think it will work. Thanks for y'alls input.
