6 spd

So I guess I should have bought the regular automatic lj unlimited instead of the 6spd rubicon lj .Wish I had done a little more research on them.For the people who have replaced the transmission are the the parts a little more stronger than the factory parts? Any info would be great. Fred

? Why do you say that? Its really mostly a personal preference type decision. Is something wrong with your transmission?

Do you have a body lift or have you lowered the transfercase?
Make sure the gearshift lever is not being prevented from fully going into gear.

Of all the miles jeeps see reverse has to be like 1%. I've seen lots of vehicles that don't like to stay in reverse. At least you're not driving across the country in reverse.
Try syncing with a forward gear before dropping into reverse. That helps me a lot. Every transmission has Pro and con. Shift on!! I think manual is the way to go IMO it doesn't matter what manual jeep trans you have they all seem to have very similar issues.

Take a look at your inner shift boot I would have that issue when I replaced it. I just had to manipulate it a little after that all is good.

I used to have some trouble finding reverse but now I can feel when reverse isn't properly engaging by how far the stick throws into reverse.

If it doesn't feel like it is engaging all the way I can throw it into a forawrd gear then usually it will glide right into reverse afterwards.

Same here. I always just put it in neutral let off the clutch, press the clutch again and it glides into reverse. It rarely does it, but when it does that's what I do.

I'm curious now. Do any transmissions have a synchronized reverse? How could they when reverse turns in the opposite direction? The only exception might be some heavy equipment that has multiple reverse gears.

I don't understand. What does it synchronize to? Does a reverse synchro help bring the transmission to a stop before spinning in the opposite direction?
