First Jeep

It's also the first time I'm having to constantly work on a vehicle in almost three years. Current tranny is acting as a 3-speed (missing 2nd and 5th), the guy I bought it off of swears that the Jeep is a 4-speed. He had another transmission that came with it out of a wrecked Jeep that I hope is an AX5 (actually hope it's an AX15 and I can get an adapter plate since the end goal is to put some type of small block chevy in the thing.) The short-term goal is to have it ready to do a few trails in a few months and also be a daily driver in New Orleans. I've been finding a few...interesting things so far, and I've learned to not trust ebay sellers when they say things like "these seats came out of a wrecked 1995 jeep wrangler." Anyway, new seats, brackets and sliders coming in Friday. Other than that, I've had it about 2 weeks and I've driven it about 700 miles. It's got 112,000 miles on it, no leaks anywhere. It did run a little hot on a longer trip, and it will need a new radiator (the core is rusted). Once I get it mechanically sound, I'll make it pretty again. Any advice y'all have for me is more than welcome.

Welcome aboard. Looks like a pretty good platform to start with. You'll enjoy it for sure.

Congrats on your Jeep.
If you do get the ax-15 you will need to change the input gear on the t-case. Sorry https://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledg...g-input-gears/ See link for more info..
Was the other jeep also a 4 cyl. if so it will have the ax-5.
6 cyl will have the ax-15

Thanks! The Jeep is the 4 cylinder, but considering that he thought that it came with a 4-speed, I'm kind of hoping that the other transmission was pulled off of a 95 jeep without regard to any other criteria.

I've got a four speed in my 91... But it came out of a Chevy..
That being said look at everything carefully there's no telling what the previous owner / owners installed in the past.
