Putting a 1994 AX15 into a 1998 TJ?
I found a 1994 AX-15 Transmission on CL for a decent price, and he confirmed that it had the external slave cylinder. Will this fit my 98 TJ? My current transmission has a couple bad syncros for sure, and now I have a driveline vibration that may also be inside of there.

Any modifications needed? Should I keep my bell housing?

Along with the transmission, I need a new clutch. Anything else I should replace while it's tore apart?

Thanks JF

That should work fine. I'm using an ax15 from a 95 XJ (just had to change clocking).

If you're doing your clutch, do not have the flywheel re-surfaced. The oem flywheel is not flat.

If you can afford it, I'd recommend putting in a b&m short shifter. I know it's not a race car, but it makes the shifts so much more precise. I think mine improves it enough so that if I were to get another jeep, that's probably the very first thing I'd order.

Edit: if the trans is from an XJ, the clocking on the trans, for the transfer case will need to be changed (re-drilled)
