Its not cheap. I have not totaled the whole project but its somewhere around $3500 It took three months to finally get all the parts delivered and put on.

This transmission is huge and not easy to put in. This swap requires a lot of modifications.

Here is the thread of the swap and there is a lot left out that I needed to do.

JCS05Rubi stay away from the NV3500 6 spds in the rubicons, lots of recorded problems, as well as the pugeot trannies.

Tell me about it.. gone through 3 of them now its an NV4500

The Ax-5 was fine before major mods once i put a lift and tires on it was over.

110k on first trans other two lasted a total of 20k after the lift.

AX-5 SUCKS for an offroading trans.

hemmer well as long as ive had it its only been through a little mud. So i wouldnt consider myself a serious off roader or anything. but it has been through stuff where my friends have gotten stuck and ive made it through no problem and turns out ive only had 2wd lol.

nregas1 Haven't heard of any recurring tranny issues. Know a few 98 TJ's with the manual that have almost 200K on them.

Depends on what you consider to be "tranny Problems". For what they were intended, Jeep trannies hold up decently. If, however, you intend to change your suspension, go with beefy tires, and try to climb or go through everything in sight, then yes, Jeeps can have tranny problems. The basic units installed are set up for occasional, light, off road use. They will not hold under the loads heavy off road use puts on them.
