Ok, easiesy way to tell if its a YJ. Does it have Square Headlights? is yes then its a YJ and its awesome

The tranny plugs are as follows: (for an AX-15)
Drain plug is on the driver side of the transmission
Fill plug is on the passenger side of the transmission

The tranny plugs are as follows: (for an NV3550)
Drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission
Fill plug is on the driver side of the transmission (I'm 99% sure its driver)

The T-Case plugs are as follows:
Drain plug is on the rear left of the case (the lower one)
Fill plug is on the rear center of the case (the higher one)
(the plug are basicly next to eachother)

The Transmission fluid is: As far as I know it depends on what kind of transmission it is. Do you know if its a AX-15 or a NV3550?

The T-Case fluid is: ATF +4 Automatic transmission fluid

YJ = 1987-1995, no wranglers made in 1996, YJ = Square Headlights

TJ = 1997+, back to round headlights

According to:

I'm going to get picky and say...

97-2006 = TJ

2007 - Present = JK

And then there are the LJ's...

Hey Toshpate, I read one of your posts a couple days ago, sorry to hear about your rollover with your CJ. Did you ever do anything with it?

decided to keep the old POS, gonna try and go work on it a bit this weekend maybe, have a great friend who is a jeeper and is very mechanical. hoping he can teach me and the boyfriend a thing or two. hoping to find out if I can get the motor started before to long. I will start a thread I am sure...the grill and radiator has to be wenched off the motor first ha ha. it isnt touching the fan but its to close to risk it
