Question 5 Speed Manual Transmission on 2005 TJ?

I'm curious to see if anyone knows if Jeep made a 5 speed manual transmission on the 2005 TJ Rubicons, or if they only made the 6 speed manual transmission with OD?

the 5-speed is a NV3550. it was only available from 2000-04.
the 6-speed is a NSG370. it was only available from 05-06.

all 05-06 Rubicon's use the NSG370. the ratios are close together and 1st gear is a granny-type low. it's a damn good transmission thats more forgiving to gear ratios & larger tires.

As previously noted only the NSG370 6sp waas available. Are u having problems with one? We have an 05 with the NSG and have been through 2 so far after 65K miles. Tried every type oil to no avail. parts are VERY scare and expensive and I had to do a rebuild myself as i couldn't finf anyone in MA to work on it. When it works it works great and love 1st gear.
