NSG370 Tranny Swap

Has anyone swapped the AX-5 for the six speed NSG370 that is put in newer wranglers? Anyone that has this tranny stock or that has swapped it, do you like it? Is it better than the Ax-5? Any better highway gas mileage due to the sixth gear?

I'll be interested to see what kind of response you get here, I've wondered about this myself...

What years did the wranglers get 6 speeds ? I could swear that I saw one in the Unlimited when it first came out. I don't now how much it would increase milage, that first gear so I hear is a real stump puller of a granny gear.

they are 05-06. If you get one, get a newer model one. they had a lot of problems with them when they first came out. I am still kinda iffy on mine. I think all in all, I like the 5spd from my 97 better. Had a better overdrive, and was a tad stronger. the 6spd has an easier clutch, and a real nice granny gear for offroad, but they had a lot of problems with the shift forks, and it does get a good bit less smooth after about 7,000 miles. I guess time will tell how the new one holds up, but no probs with like 20k on the new one. I would assume it would just bolt right up.
