Factory available 4 speeds in 84

Last night I was looking at the driveshaft info in a page from a parts manual someone posted several weeks ago and it did not list a shaft for a T-4/5 in 83-84. It got me wondering if they were available from the factory? Is there anyway to tell what a CJ came with originally?

Straight stick = T-176

Curved stick w/Reverse down and right = T-4

Curved stick w/Reverse up and left = SR-4, a.k.a. the worst transmission ever in a Jeep.

Thanks, I know what's in mine now, but was wondering if there was a way to tell what it came factory with. AND if so how?

You can tell from the 10th digit of your VIN if it came originally with an automatic (E), 5 speed (F,L or N) or 4 speed (M) manual transmission.

If it was a manual then in your year it was supposed to come with a 5 speed T5 or a 4 speed T4 or as part of a heavier duty set up (medium duty) a T177 4 speed. However this is only in theory from the parts manual and goodness only knows what you received.

Supposedly the SR-4 was last fitted in 1981 but who knows if that is actually true. I have later registered Jeeps with earlier date stamps on the crucial parts, they sometimes hung around in inventory, not like today's slick operation at Daimler Chrysler.

And you must have the wrong parts manual as a 27.25" front propshaft / driveshaft is listed for the T4/T5 in that year.

This should read as being the 5th digit, the 10th is the model year.

Oops, you are right. It is the 10th piece of information shown on the chassis plate but the 5th item in the VIN number.
