You are probably thinking of the auto transmission (42RLE)... Nothing really wrong with them, but your tire and gear ratio choices can make the overdrive gear not function as well as designed by the Jeep Engineers. It is an electrically controlled trans vs. the older 3 speed (32RH), which was a hydraulic unit.

Got the 06 SE with 6spd manual tranny and I have not had any issues nor heard of any except I have the 4cyl which I love but I'd recc 6cyl. Great Jeep you'll love em and if you want the full pkg get the Rubi which comes with an SYE and lockers and better axles.

I wouldn't be all that worried about the tranny but I would read up on the opda issues. I had mine go on me and it will prob go again down the road but I do not regret me choice in buying my 05
