|Giancarlo||i just love the 5 speed.. anyone willing.. or is there another way to get another tranny in good condition|
|10-06-2008 08:01 PM|
i love my auto
it is exactly like they say, makes offroading easier
especially up steep hills and such

Yor right. The only BIG disadvantage of the 3spd auto tranny is that it doesn´t like water. It has a breather hole somwhere where the tranny is connected to the engine.
With the 5spd manual tranny you don´t have a torque converter. The TJ will be more sluggish with the big 33s than with the auto tranny.

|Giancarlo||i learned how to drive stick when i was 15 down the shore with the top down and doors off in a tj.. so when i turned 17 i bought an auto tj.. i love drivin my jeep around when its stripped down to nothing but i miss shifting gears using both feet... my jeep only has to conquer small trails and mudd and occassioal 3 to 4 feet water passings..my jeep will never be put against those mountains i have seen in ur website because i cant risk being without a vehicle .. its my daily driver and im in college so im not looking to beat it off road to badly because i have to drive it 220 miles each time i go home.. and a 5 speed will just put a big smile on my face because ive always wanted one|

|Jerry Bransford||Keep it, your TJ will lose much of its offroad strengths if you convert to a 5-speed. I converted from a 5-speed to my current 3-speed automatic earlier this year and it completely transformed my TJ offroad. The auto improved my TJ's offroad abilities much like when I converted from front and rear Truetracs to front and rear lockers.|

|IslandTJ||Why? Majority of Jeepers are making the opposite decision. Is it due to your wheeling style? I was a diehard "stick" or manual trans fan until I purchased my 3speed TJ, I won't be going back to a manual.|

Anyone want to swap their manual for my auto?
I have a 1997 TJ and I am considering doing an auto to manual swap. Anyone interested in a 3 speed auto?
