Allen bolts sockets??

Well I was just about ready to service my transmission, NSG370 2006 Wrangler and I see it requires allen bolt sockets?? I wish I had known this!! UGH sorry but I am new with wranglers and most of my technical info is comming from the Haynes manual which is obviously not a complete as it claims.

My question is for folks familiar with the nsg370 transmission, and the rest of a 2006 wrangler, what are the EXACT allen sockets I will be needing? Thank you all!

My 02 TJ with an NV3550 uses 17mm allen bolt, easily had at any car parts shop, not sure what size yours may be, I'd suggest google or just get a range of 15-20mm allen bolts

14mm + 17mm will cover the fill + drain plugs.

What are you planning on filling it with? I have had favorable results w/RoyalPurple!

You have 2 sizes, you will need:

A 14MM for the fill plug and a 17MM for the drain. 22lbs of torque.

I ran into that on a Sunday night - everyone was closed.
I got creative - I found a bolt with the right sized head, then welded it to a piece of steel. Worked great.

I think I've used that more often than the sockets I bought since.

Finally picked up the 14 and 17mm sockets but then when I was flushing my cooling system I ran into another issue...the engine block drain plugs use a 5/16" square plug! I must have ben to 10 places today, nobody carries this type of male socket. Only place I have seen it is online from Matco.....

Use an open end 5/16", or a 12 point box end, or 12 point socket.

If you plan on replacing your front bumper you will need a T55.
