I agree. The 999/32RH is a great medium duty transmission and really all that we need for the 4.0/4.2. Pedal assembly, CPS, lines, cooler etc... and you'll be set. If you can find a donor vehicle in the u pull it yard then you'll be set.

GrnTJ Id say swap it out to a nv3550. Thats a great trans and it is gonna save you tons of $$ compared to swapin an auto in there.

jeeps&comics im havin problems with my ax15 as well... gettin it rebuilt this weekend. but i guess they're not good tranny's? i hope (in the next year or 2) to replace the ax15 with something like a nv3550. read about this online, and apparently, its a much better tranny when just switching trannys. but when switchin from manual to auto, i have no idea, but i did come across this when looking for more info on swappin out an ax15. hope this helps some...

My ax15 needs a lot of work. I would like to change to a automatic.
Would appreciate any information and suggestions on which direction to go 350 automatic or would there be another that would work better.
