    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    My Rubi has an 05 and has the POS 6 speed. Since the T-case has been stripped out and the transmission is grinding in 3rd, I may have to go the poor man's route and replace both with rebuilds. My Dad recently died and I inherited a JL Rubicon, so I may wind up selling TJ (it's a money...

    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    Is there any problems bolting the AX-15 to the Rubicon transfer case? I've read that there are differences regular transfer case and the Rubi case and don't know if those differences between the will keep the AX-15 from interfacing with the Rubi transfer case. Thanks for the amazing and very...

    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    This video gives the low down. The shift rails and gears all are problematic.

    Nevermind. I see now it's for both transmissions.

    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    Please be aware. You sent me a link for the adapter bellhousing for the "NV3550 & AX15 TO JEEP 4.0 BELLHOUSING 2005 & 06" Not the NSG370. I'd hate it if you bought the wrong adapter!

    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    Excellent. Advance adapters has a better shifter lever too. My has the POS 6 speed though. Please let me know if there are any hidden problems. Good luck!

    AX-15 conversion in a 2005 Rubicon

    Can AX-15s be adapted to a 2005 Rubicon. I'm probably going to have to replace my transfer case and would love to ditch the NG370 too. I've found some things on Novak, IIRC, that was set up for the earlier years, but the transfer case was clocked differently.

    Best source for a Rubicon transfer case?

    My calculations are around $3800. Stupid inflation!

    What was your first Jeep?

    1953 CJ3B. Bought it in high school around 1983. I learned a whole bunch of things never to do with that thing! The speed limit was only 55 back then. I bet it's really a PITA to deal with the gearing on those things now.

    How much are two speed Atlas' transaxles, anyway?

    Best source for a Rubicon transfer case?

    I plan on putting the front end on stands, putting it in 4 hi and try to rotate the driveshaft to check for slack in the chain. Does anyone know of a better way to check for slack other than cracking the case?

    Best source for a Rubicon transfer case?

    I would suspect a stretched chain before gear problems. You may be able to see the chain thru the drain plug with a scope. How common are stretched chains in the 241? It only has 110,000 miles, but I suspect the PO ran 35s and beat up on it pretty bad. The front axle was broken, but I got...

    Best source for a Rubicon transfer case?

    Things just get better and better. As I was trying to determine the source of vibration on my Rubicon, I pulled the rear driveshaft. When I drove it off the front axle, anytime I tried to accelerate, it would make a heavy ratcheting sound for a few seconds. My guess is the PO stripped out...

    Unknown driveshaft yoke

    Okay. As I was trying to find out the source of vibration, I twisted the head off a U joint bolt in the rear yoke. It has a dual cadron driveshaft of an unknown manufacture. My question is, what size yoke and U-joint do I need to get? Is there anyway I can determine the size of the U-joint...

    Monday morning Q-back says, "airing down the tires and slowing the roll would have prevented this."

    So, a new shaft fixed it?
