Yeah its sounds to be a little on the difficult side. He did ask for a stronger trans and that would be a viable option if he is willing to do the work..

Jerry Bransford I'd run the existing AX-5 transmission, making sure it is lubed with the right GL-4 75W-90 gear lube. If it craps out, I'd install another AX-5 because they are dirt cheap to buy. Far cheaper and easier than trying to adapt a stronger transmision.

IslandTJ Weak as will break or weak as in torque? You may want to research gearing options for either your differentials or transfer case.

I would like to put stronger trans in

I have a 97 TJ with the 4 cyc and manual trans in it.
I heard this is a week trans and I want to put a snow plow on it.
I want to keep the engine because I have spent money on it.
So does any body know of a manual trans that is strong that I could put in.
Thanks
