About Our Remanufactured AX5 Transmission
When you buy an AX5 transmission from our online shop, you can be sure that you'll get a quality remanufactured or used transmission that will run well for years to come.
In our remanufactured transmissions, all parts are replaced with new or re-machined components that meet or exceed the specifications of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Even better, we correct any known factory defects during this process. This can involve reverse-engineering to figure out exactly what has been causing problems with the original equipment and how to fix it, as well as making our own internal parts that correct the issues. This often results in our remanufactured AX5 transmissions performing better over time than a new AX5 transmission.
Thanks to all of the work we put into our remanufactured transmissions, we offer a 36-month (3-year), unlimited mileage warranty on them. You can also expect benefits like smoother shifting and greater reliability.
With us, you don't have to worry about the cost of shipping eating up your savings. When you order online, we ship free to commercial addresses, which makes it easy for you to have your transmission sent directly to your choice of installation shop. If you'd rather have your replacement transmission sent to your home, it's just $75.00.

AX5 History & Information
The AX5 transmission, made by Aisin Warner, was introduced in 1984. This transmission is manual. It was in that year's XJ Jeep Cherokee, as well as the Jeep XJ, Jeep YJ, Jeep Comanche, and Jeep TJ models. It remained in the latter models until 2004, giving it a 10-year run.
This transmission was limited to being paired with the AMC 150 (2.5L) I4 engine and the early GM 2.8L 60 degrees V6. Furthermore, the transfer case commonly mounted to this transmission from the factory was the New Process NP231 transfer case.
Despite its prevalence during its years of manufacture, the transmission is known for being quite weak. It is doubtful when used for off-roading, and it, rather than the engine, is often the limiting factor when trying to upgrade the power of relevant vehicles.
Through the years, a few problems with the AX5 became apparent. The most common issue was the loss of the Overdrive gear even at low mileages. At higher mileages, users could experience problems with it coming out of gear by itself.
This transmission also tends to develop problems, specifically the loss of synchros, if the factory-specified oil is used. Needless to say, the incompatibility with the very oil that the factory says to use has caused frustration and expense for many Jeep owners.
The manufacturer made a few changes to this transmission throughout its years of production. One such change switched a leak-prone hydraulic throwout bearing with a more typical external slave cylinder with a mechanical bearing and clutch fork.
Now, many people who buy or already own vintage Jeeps that have this transmission choose to swap them for completely remanufactured ones, such as those made by us, or install AX15 transmissions instead. This can greatly reduce the number of problems encountered.
