Hi guys !

Newby question..

is the 4.0L 6 cylinders engine from the 1993 Wrangler the same engine that comes on the TJs?

Regards,

Aisin AX-5 ransmission.

Are you aware of a difference between the pilot shaft length from the 1990 and the 1995 four cylinder transmission? I have a 1995 Rio Grande.
I just installed a used transmission from a 1990 four cylinder wrangler.
I had the flywheel turned and installed a new disc, throwout bearing, and pressure plate. After a few miles the clutch started making a grinding noise. I pulled it apart and installed a new fork, a new ball mount / with clip, and a new master / slave cylinder assembly. Now that it is all back together, it is making the same noise. An old timer at work suggested the pilot shaft on the replacement transmission might be shorter and not entering the bushing in the end of the crank shaft. Does this sound reasonable?

I hear the AX15 is a much stronger transmission. Would it be possible to match up an AX15 with a four cylinder motor? Even better, how about one of the new six speed transmissions?

Thanks for your time,

Lee

Sweet post! You don't want to even know about my trouble I had with my 88Wrangler. I converted from a 4.2 carburated to an inline6 fuel injected and threw a 91 AX-15/5spd into it for a trans. The wiring harness was a nightmare to figure out, but it is all done and works great! I try to hand out help if I can when I see a difficult question needing answered, but sometimes I just want to kick back and say "really". Thanks for the input!

np207 was an early transfer case which was phased out in 87-88. easiest way to confirm what you have is to crawl under and check out the circular tag on the back of the t case. bottom line on axle gears is don't guess or take somebody else's word for it. pop the cover and check for yourself.

Please help a noob lost in a sea of post. What I am looking for is tires for my '93 YJ.
Recently obtained a very "used" 93 Sahara 4.0 with 5 spd. I can tell it has a mild lift, probably 2 1/2" (judging by ride height and the holes cut in floor pans for new bolts).
As well, it has a bad "shifting" of the front leaf(s) in the shackles (appears to be new leaf springs or recent additions as part numbers are still freash and bushings have no weathering yet). The steering is not loose but you have to maintain control and on a narrow and/or windy road it makes you pinch the seat cushion staying in your lane and away from mail boxes.
Back to the tires, currently it's running 31x10.5 street treads... in comparision, I did have an '05 Silverado with Silent Armors and while great on street, light snow, mild rocky incline, they were great, in wet grass with an incline they sucked.
As much as some lean towards the Duratrac's, I want something that is a bit more aggreassive, something I can be assured will pull or dig as long as I keep the momentum going. I am not a "rock crawler" nor hill climber, just tend to get off the beaten path for camping and hunting from time to time. The most drastic path I've been on was loose large rock at 25 to 30 degree incline and while my Silverado pulled with ease fully loaded (400+ lbs), when it rained, I either sat it out or took truck out of the hollow and walked back.

t-case low range is 2.72 to 1.. that is not your axle gear ratio however.

From what you say the duratrac's seem like they would be great.. If you want something more agressive look at the MTR, Toyo open country is also good middle of the road.. or bfg MT.

Many thanks for the imput on the tires, back in the day I freakishly stumbled apon a great combo, had a '91 Nissan p-up and fitted it with Yoko Desert Diggers. Winter of '93 got pretty deep in the Blue Grass so I added six cinder blocks in the back and found myself still moving with the powder past the bumper. Same winter had a Snieder driver stuck on an on ramp, ended pulling him and the single axle tow trk up the ramp.
For now, I am simply looking for something to keep me moving where ever I find myself so I am going to look again at the Duratrac and Open Country's... really didn't think I wanted to go as far as the "super swamper" type.
Again, much thanks and glad I joined the group, hope I can repay in kind down the road.

Shouldn't have too much trouble, I towed a '95 T-bird with my '91 YJ 4 cyl. Was funny as hell, ran so well kept forgetting I was towing.

The 6cyl motors can last for 300,000 miles if taken care off properly like regular oil changes and stuff. The 4cyl on the other hand I don't know much about but iv heard that it dosnt last anywhere neer the time the 6 does
