YJ with a 360, need trans help

Hey guys I just started this forum today. We have had jeeps in my family for a while, but i finally bought my own two weeks ago. It's an '88 YJ with a 360 V8 out of an '84 wagoneer. Other than that and the 31" tires, the jeep is completely stock. That's where the problems are coming in. It needs a new transmission, and i think that's because the 360 ate up the stock one. What i need to know is are there and trans. out of something beefier (like a wagoneer) that i can put into it without much modification. Meaning the same bolt holes and same length of the one that's in it. It was origonally a V6 and had the BA10/5

The AX-15, (think 4.0l YJ tranny's, 5 spd manual) will bolt up to the BA10/5. It will be marginal to hold up to the 360's power output. You can also use the same t-case.

If you want to go auto, the Torqueflite727 came stock in the Waggy, but you would have to change the t-case input shaft, as well as shift linkage, etc. I'm assuming you have the NP231 t-case, right?

I'm really confused as to why someone would bolt up that garbage BA tranny to 360???

The best bet (if you have the cash) is to get the NV4500 trans from Quadratec.

I had an '87 YJ with the 4.2/Puegot BA-10 trans. I seized the trans at 150,000 miles. The Puegot has a reputation for being the worst trans ever put in a Wrangler.

I'm shocked that it took the abuse of a 360 for more than 3 or 4 miles. Its kinda harsh!

Anyway, the NV4500 is part# 52158.001 on Quadratec.com and will run you close to $4000. Its pretty steep, but well work it.
