tn-yj yeah i think its like 1996-200?. I know the 96 fits because I used one. If you do your shopping correctly it can be cheaper than most options. It does include alot of wrench time. And get ready to use your sailor's dictionary of fine words of choice when removing the top bolts on the bellhousing. Im finishing this exact swap this weekend so if you decide to do I will help all I can. When I get around to it Im gonna do a write up but until then just pm me with questions

jpdocdave input shafts are different also, but someone on here once said that theres a 2.5 in a dodge dakota or something that came with the ax15 trans and not ax5, so that bell housing and trans would work, but i never heard anything about it again, so can't be too sure.

Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Will the bell housing on the ax5 fit the ax15?
