Comments: Needed a complete rebuild and torque converter at 106,000 but I think it was due to the previous owner's neglect. Would not trade it for another manual out on the trail!

Comments: Converted from a 5-speed manual to the 32RH version of the TF-999 which is what comes on 4.0L Wranglers up until 2002. It's an outstanding and reliable transmission, especially for tougher trails like for rock crawling. I give it a 9 out of 10 only because it is only a 3-speed and not a 4-speed.

Comments: Some hate it, some love it! I love it. Only the orinal de-aeration sits to low in the transmission. This can be easi'ly adjsuted by your self. Search on Tf 727. And you will find instructions to convert your de-aeration!

Pros direct fit bullet proof not the 999 but the TF727
Cons cant think of one.
Recommended yes

Comments: TF-727 strong bullet proof trans. Direct fit just hasve to change the clocking of the transfer case. Also must have a 4 inch lift or front drive shaft will hit pan while off roading.

Pros Built to live and stay cool
Cons kinda expensive, light throttle 2-3 shift quality
Wish it had OD!
Recommended yes

Comments: Had my stock trans rebuilt by a local wizard. Transgo stage 2 shift kit, nice internals, 400 rpm lower than stock converter, relocated the vent myself.

Shifts are virtual instant, and very much firmer than stock.

Only complaint is the 2-3 shift is a bit firm at very light throttle. Under accel, and offroad, this trans shifts excellent.

Pros Fairly low gearing mated with the stock dana 300 T-Case and stock axle gears
Its a stock jeep auto
Cons Screams down the highway at 60 thus this trans is hard on fuel mileage
Recommended yes

Comments: My 85 CJ-7 came factory with this transmission. Part of the selling point of this jeep was the auto trans. I am perfectly capable of driving a stick and enjoy it for beating up and down the road, however offroad I dont want to have to worry about shifting gears midway through a mudhole or halfway up a hill. Just personal preferance.

2 concerns I had with this trans were 1. finding parts for a rebuild and 2. its a chrysler which dont have the best reputations
I was able to find the rebuild for it with little trouble and since being rebuilt it has perfomed well... Knock on wood

Pros The most versitile transmission ever made.
Cons Kinda clunks into 3rd sometimes
Recommended yes

Comments: I really think this was the best transmission ever designed. I love that I can go from 5 to 80mph using the same gear and the engine has absolutely no problem hauling it. This might be the complete opposite of economical, but I am going to say that this transmission will always be there for me.

Pros Increased fluid capacity and has a drain plug.
Cons Need to drop the skid to remove the pan during filter servicing. Not a big deal, but makes the job longer than it should be.
Recommended yes

Comments: Like the increased fluid capacity of the Mopar Deep Trans Pan and the drain plug feature.
