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!!
