Jeep Transmissions: AX-15
The AX-15 is a medium duty five speed transmission with an
It is manufactured by Aisin in Japan and, although they are not
compatible, the same model transmission is used in some Toyota trucks.
In 1994 the clutch slave cylinder was moved
to the outside of the bellhousing, so these AX-15s have a different
input bearing retainer to accommodate the different throwout bearing.
The input shaft is also slightly different, so a different pilot
bushing is used. All AX-15s have a 1 1/8" 10 spline input shaft
and a 23 spine output shaft.
The AX-15 was first used in Cherokees (XJ) and Comanches (MJ)
with the 4.0L engine. In mid 1989, the AX-15 was used in Wranglers
(YJ) with the 4.2L engine and it continued to be used with the 4.0L
engine. The first year of the Grand Cherokee (ZJ), the AX-15 was
rare option only with the 4.0L engine. The AX-15 is
still used in TJs and XJs with the 4.0L engine.
