4 speed automatic
Used with both 4 cyl and 6 cyl models TJ's and LJ's.

It does not have to be a rubicon model. The transmission are the same in a rubi as the normal TJ or LJ.

I'd personlly get a whole new clutch kit and flywheel. Can you reuse one off of a donor ..sure as long as it aint fubar'd.

Also remember there are alot more items to go along with it. Not just slapping the manual trans in and going. You'll need a clutch pedal assembly. Slave cylinder, master cylinder and more.

Neither... The NV3550 is just that ...a NV3550. The AX5 was used in older 4cyl's and the AX15 was used in older "99" and older 6cyl.

The NV3550 replaced the AX-15 in the wrangler model.
