97 TJ transmission

Ok, so I bought 97 TJ a few weeks ago. I want to change out all the fluids since the previous owner was a bit negligent. I can't figure out which transmission I have. My Jeep is a 6 cylinder, manual transmission Sport. From the Haynes manual it looks like my choices are AX-4/5, AX-15, NV1500 and NV3550, but it doesn't tell me how to figure out which one I have!

I''ll be doing the diffs and transfer cases as well. Any info is appreciated.

Hello Knot... I have the same year TJ and we both have the AX-15 5-speed transmission.

I heartily recommend using Redline's MT-90 in the AX-15. You can pick it up at Summit Racing's website and you will need at least 3.3 quarts.

'97 moss pearl green TJ, 4.0, 5-speed, 3" Teraflex coils +1.5" spacers, Super35 w/ Superior 30 spline shafts, ARB and ZJ disc brakes, Dana30 w/ ARB, 4:10s, AA SYE w/Teraflex shaft, BDS upper/lower control arms, Rusty's HD tie-rod, JKS quicker disco's, Poison Spyder steering box skid, Riddler diff covers, 35x12.50 MTZs on Eagle alloys, Warn M8000 winch, NoLimits4X4 stinger/rad hoop, SRC rockers, Bestop tire carrier, Raingler nets, yada yada...

It's a good life. My wife doesn't look under my Jeep and I don't count her shoe boxes...
