Which tranny? Manual or Auto?

ive done both manual and auto just ask if you have any questions. before you even start make sure you have a jack stand and a floor jack with a wide lift plate for stability

Ha, you're just bustin to tell someone how to install a tranny now that you've busted your knuckles on it for the last few weekends eh Jerry. :D :D :D I remember swapping my 32 out myself on my back in my garage and it was no fun at all. :D

hey guys sorry bout the details its a 98 manual 4.0 and which seals and stuff do i need

Jerry Bransford 03-11-2008 01:10 PM

No seals to worry about unless the new tranny or old t-case is leaking as both are sealed self-contained units. You'll need an E-10 and E-12 extended Torx-head socket adapter too. Two E-12 bolts at the top hold the tranny to the engine and one (IIRC) E-10 at the top holds the t-case to the tranny. Otherwise it's a bolt-up process if you're just replacing an AX-15 with another AX-15, there is no sealing of the tranny to engine or t-case to tranny to worry about.

I hope you are replacing the clutch and throwout bearing while it's all apart, unless the clutch has very low miles on it. :)

ya its not got many miles on it at all i replaced it a while back when i thought that was the prob and its a high preformance clutch to so i should be good on that
