Year specific. 2000 and newer Sports with the NV3550 5-speed or NSG370 6-speed manual transmission have remote vents via rubber vent hoses to keep water out of the transmission. '99 and older Sports with the 5-speed have the AX-5 which only has a button vent on top of the transmission which can let water in. Those with the 2.5L engine with the AX-5 transmission have the same issue as the AX-15.

I would check all of those items to make sure their vent hoses are securely attached, the vent hoses are clamped onto the top of all of them.

Shark_13 Damn....
I'd do both diffs, Trans, transfer case, and oil change. Grease all zerk fittings and ujoints if possible.

Well I was stuck in a mud hole this weekend for a whole night, not me but my jeep. It wasnt fun but when I came back to winch it out the next morning some other jeeper mechanics told me I needed to change out my fluids. I have a 4 inch lift with 2 inch body lift so the water wasnt to my engine so would I only need to drain my differential and transmission fluids? other fluids I need to worry about? HELP PLEASE! Also any ideas how to loosen my stock bumper bolts so i can get my new bulldog bumper on? Thanks!
