I have a 97 ZJ 4.0 auto with 180K and the transmission seems to be going.
It works but it is sometimes slow to shift especially in cold weather and it leaks from where it connects to the t-case occasionally (especially under high load or in 1st).
My first question: Is there anything I can do to it to repair it or extend its life?
My second question: When it does go (and I will almost certainly wait until it is gone to replace it) is there a better transmission I should look around for that can be installed in that vehicle without to much work?
I plan to run 35s on a long arm kit with a 8.8 rear before to long so if possible I would like to put a beefier model in.
thanks.

You can change the filter and fluid.. And put in a good quality fluid like Amsoil or something..

And you will need to change the rear seal.. Drop the T case and its easy to get to..

You will need to go to Jeep to get the rear seal.. Because autozone has the wrong seal number in its computer..


Give it a try..
