Ax15 Transmission

Posted on  by admin

The AX15 transmission is built to fit in Jeep Wrangler, Cherokee, Comanche, and Grand Cherokee applications between 1988 and 1999. The easiest way to identify an AX-15 manual transmission is to notice the casing is made entirely out of Aluminum. The AX-15 only mounts to a 6 cylinder motor. The AX-15 manual transmission has a 10 spline input shaft and a 23 spline output shaft. AX-15 Gear Ratios. AX-15 Manual Transmission Gear Ratios (First-Fifth): (3.83, 2.33, 1.44, 1.00, 0.79). The Aisin-Warner AX15 transmission is a very successful, medium-duty, standard shift, five-speed transmission and is regarded as one of the best 5-speed transmissions ever installed. It was introduced in 1988 and is a great swap for many Bronco owners. The AX15 can be cleanly adapted to the Windsor Ford V8 bellhousing that features the butterfly Ford transmission bolt pattern with an adapter.
