NSG-370 Transmission Problem/Question

I ( I bought, my daughter drives) have a 2006 with 65K miles. My daughter used it mainly for mud and now first through third gear whine like a little baby all the time. 4th is not so bad. 5th and 6th are perfectly quiet. I'm tired of power washing mud from places that should not get muddy! I will be converting it to climbing setup but want to get some input about the transmission. I want to buy a new one because I'm always worried about the word "rebuild". Has anyone had experience with correcting whining gears? I'm not interested in pinching pennies. I want to get the best and most reliable transmission fix I can before setting it up for climbing. I plan on breaking things on the rocks. I don't want to worry about the transmission.

currently 4" lift w/35s, split yoke, 200amp alt., dana 44 Rear, high pinion 30 up front.

Soon to be added, OX lockers front/rear and BDS long arms, 5 point harness seats.

My Jeep is a 2012 COD MW3. 2"lift 35s. She needs to keep up with me on the rocks!!

If it's been in the mud & water has the transmission fluid ever been changed? It might have water inside?

Not familiar with transmission internals. First through fourth grind while 5th and 6th are perfectly quite. Could it be a bearing that is unique to the first 4 gears? Thx

I would certainly change your fluid first, and then see how your tranny reacts. You mentioned you want to change to a climbing setup. Like rock climbing? You might be looking at a manual to auto swap.

I'd drain the existing fluid, and refill with synthetic, Amsoil (or Royal Purple) Synchromesh. Check the tranny for a vent/breather, and fabricate an extended breather tube to a safe, dry spot up under the dash.

Let us know if the fluid swap works.
