Hi all new to the board have a question about the 6-speed. To make a long story short I have to rebuild or replace my NV3500. 5-speed out of an 01 TJ.

Now in typical Jeep fashion I see the opportunity for one more mod. Finding any specs on it is almost imposable and what I am wondering is.

1) Are the dimensions close to the NV3500?
2) Other then replacing the clutch assembly are there any other major changes?


I am using a Nth Degree Tummy Tucker so clearance is extremely important.

Thanks all

Randy

Well I have my 6 Speed on the way. Here are the only discernable differences.

1) Clutch is completely different.
2) Bell housing is his different. Might have to do with the Clutch :-0

Should be here in a week, I'll be doing the swap Pres Day weekend.

Total cost was about 1300 bucks.

I am really looking forward do the change in ratio's I am running 4.10's with a 4:1. Just a little to fast Here are the numbers. This is only to the Axle not the tires.

Based on a NV3350 3.86:1 with NV231 2.73:

Stock 39:1


Gears only = 43.20:1

Gears + 4:1 = 63.3:1

NGS 370 + 4:1 + gears = 73.1

I'm excited because I really wanted to go to 4:56 or 4:88 for the rocks the Now with NGS370 I will be smack dab in the middle between the 4.56 and 4.88's with the NV3550.
