fmhyj my cj5 has a 4speed, and it has the 304 in it, it does fine on the highway. but my yj is a five speed that 5th doesnt work in, so yeah its a common thing with yjs

jpdocdave glad you have it figured out, i was thinking it may have had a 4 spd, jeep had 4 spd ax4 transmissions in early comanche's. it was the same as the ax5 just w/ 4 speeds, and could be made into a 5 spd.

but you just have a bad ax5, welcome to the club.

OklaTJ It depends on the gear's the old Ford with a I6 grany 4 speed did great on the hwy! + was great on the low gear pulling!

5 th gear is known to go out in those. i believe it is a ax-5

agreed.. my YJ has a 5th but never see's it.. However a 4 speed is going to run at a completely different RPM range. Take it out for a test drive and highway run it. If you can get up to 65-70 and the RPM's are not extremely high- you may be ok.

4 speed manual ?????

I am possibly going to buy a 94 wrangler 4x4 with a 4 cyl. problem is it has a 4 speed manual. It has A/C. It's not a rock climber. I'm concerned about this for higway use. Should I be worried? I know these were suppose to come with a 5 speed. The owner stated when he bought it it had the 4 speed. He bought it used and does not know why the previous owner changed it to a 4 speed. Can this lead to problems being a 4 speed?
