Pros has over drive.

good transmission
Cons sometimes slips into a turn.

Loves OD
Recommended no

Comments: It is a decent tranny. I feel that it is paired with an underpowered engine though. And it loves over drive but that doesnt really bother me because you can just turn the OD off

Pros came with the jeep, good in stop an go traffic, don't have to shift while wheeling
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: Don't have much to say about it. Gear shift cable came disconnected when the piece that holds it to the transmission broke. No idea why that happened. Otherwise it has been good.

Pros It held up to the previous owner using it as a tow rig for 22ft boats in his yard for 5 years.
Cons It held the shift until you let up on the gas or gambled on the high RPMs on the motor.
Recommended no

Comments: What more can I say? It didn't break down, but it wasn't awesome either. It was a very reliable weak transmission.

Pros High overdrive ratio, smooth shifts
Cons Picky with its fluid, torque converter locks up too much
Recommended yes

Comments: Many people hate this transmission, but I like it. The .69 OD ratio allows me to regear to really low gears and still turn a decent rpm on the highway. As far as reliability, my friend has one in his TJ with 180k with no problems.

Pros Auto with overdrive
Cons overdrive a lil weak.
Recommended yes

Comments: I purchased the jeep about 5 months ago. 3 days after i installed my 33's and the jeep still has 3.73 gearing. Up to about 50 the overdrive does fine with the 33's but on the express way i turn it off as it is a little annoying sometimes with hills and the cruise control on. All in all i recommend this tranny when you look, it is not the dog everyone says it is.

Pros Heavy paperweight
Cons piece of crap.
Recommended no

Comments: 1. Piece of crap transmission.
2. rebuilt under warranty, still a piece of crap.
3. shift points are horrible
4. not reliable
5. proper maintenance doesn't help, your best bet is to drive it till it dies, which wont be long.
6. worst transmission jeep ever put in a wrangler
7. does not belong behind a 4.0L
