    T5 transmission any good?

    I like the T176. I don't drive on the highway all that much and it easily handles 60-65 without overrevving the engine. I have an SM465 in my GMC pickup. The T176 is much easier to shift/more pleasant to drive.

    They want to buy the forum... again. Membership thanks and explanation.

    I'm also into Honda ATV's and the big forum company bought two of the boards I frequented and promptly ruined them. Ads everywhere, and they didn't care at all when the membership AND the mods (volunteer, of course) who made the forums work all complained about it. When I found myself reading...

    Glad you weathered it ok. I have a buddy in Gulfport who gave a similar report. Lots of yard cleanup required.

    Gas tank/ skid plate recommendation

    That was what I was going to post, but looks like Kilby is gone. When did that happen?

    Help with some pricing on wheels

    The 15x8 with center caps were only made 1981 so they are rare. The 82-86 were all 15x7 which were much more common. If in mint condition, you could probably get $100-150/wheel easily, but once they get any rust on them, the value drops waaaaaay off. Once they start rusting, there's no...

    Other than a spare tire, what have you mounted on your oem rollbar spare carrier

    I like it. Back when our scrambler was used to duck hunt, Dad bolted a 2x10 to the rollbar mounted spare, and used it to clamp his 5 HP outboard onto going to and from the duck club. I had @1x1speedcraig here make a custom bumper with bumper mounted swing out spare carrier years ago, so the...

    What's on your Work Bench?

    That's not bad at all, especially given what good Laredo wheels bring these days!

    What's on your Work Bench?

    Looks great! What does a wheel rewrap run? Looks like a great alternative to buying a used 35 year old wheel that likely is dried out anyway.

    Hell factory wheels too! Helluva score! Edited to add....are those Warn hubs on the front? Let me guess....the axles will be 3.54's or 3.73's with ARBs in them too..... Super jealous.

    1984 CJ-7 LS upgrade

    Tagging for info. I've always said I'd stick with the 258 in my Jeeps, but my FIL has a burb with the 5.3 and he's pretty much destroyed the rest of the burb, so whenever he continues making the truck scrap, I might pull the 5.3 for a Jeep transplant.

    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    I really like the T176. Have them in two of our Jeeps, and have a couple on the shelf for when (not if, but when) the T5 in the other Jeep goes bang. @spankrjs probably has more experience than anybody with the T5. I run regular gear oil in my T5 and so far it's held up ok, 3.31's and 31"...

    Looking for advice on automatic shift cable

    The ididit cable should work fine. I don't think there are any differences in the 904 and the 999 that aren't internal.

    Factory console lock question (trying to get it rekeyed)

    The 65-66 Impala glovebox lock cylinders are that way. The factory Jeep console locks can be taken apart without removing the ring. Daniel Missal on FB gave me that info (I'm off of FB now, but had the messages saved). The factory Jeep console lock doesn't require removal of the trim ring.
