FYI while you're looking.....I searched a lot on the web before I bought, but apparently didn't use the correct search terms to learn about the AX-5. I saw all kinds of info about the Peugot tranny, but not the AX-5.
The AX-5 tranny behind the 2.5s is weak.
I wanted 4.1 gears, so I bought a 4 cyl one. Like I said above. Out of all the info I found, I saw nothing about the light duty AX-5 tranny. I can shift mine with no grinding now, but that's cause I have a "feel" for it. The 2nd and 3rd gear synchros are worn out...and that makes shifting interesting. 5th gear is iffy, too.
I would definitely get another Wrangler, but I'd get a 6 cyl one to avoid the weak 4 cyl tranny.
