trans replacement options

I am rebuilding a 89 YJ and my trans is crap. its the Aisin AX-15 (6 cyl), and its gone. I am looking for a compatable replacement with the slave cylinder out side of the bell housing. will the on on the TJ work? looking for some options.

The AX15 out of a TJ has a bigger pilot bearing, you should be able to just swap the bell housing onto the old AX15 to get the external slave, thats what I did with my AX5. You could swap the input shafts to make it work but if you do that you might as well rebuild it..

94 and up YJ should have slave outside. Or if you go with a TJ get a 2000 or newer nv3550 5spd, better trans.

I'm in the middle of swapping a ax15 out for a used ax15 that is newer. I believe that 93 and higher have a .750 input shaft. Not a big deal. Call Advanced Adapters and they will sell you a new pilot bushing. $25 with shipping. The problem I'm having is finding a 4X4 shift bracket to fit the newer tranny. Off to the bone yard to solve that problem.

You will need to find a 94 and above bellhousing is you want an outside slave cylinder.

I went with a used tranny because parts could possibly be $400 plus if it was a total rebuild. I'm a bit short on money right now but I will in the spring rebuild the old tranny as a spare.

Good luck.

SOA and a 4" lift? thats like a total of 10"s?

pvcoach, thats what I just did in my 91, swapped in a 95 trans with the external slave and when the funds are available I will rebuild the spare or just sell it..
