Hey guys, any mods feel free to move this to the appropriate section.
Anyway, did some research on here and the net, and didn't really see any information on here regarding the factory transmissions and the factory t-case in the Cherokees.
Most of the info is on wkjeeps but it doesn't really get in depth about any of the technical stuff and power ratings etc. I do not know if this is a legal issue or not but I was looking to see if any one with knowledge of these transmission/t-cases could post up more info on them?!
**Also to note I know its been talked about but my 05 3.7 has the tranny dipstick and did form the factory. Not sure if it was an early change or what but I definitely have one and it works correctly lol.
Power handling capabilities?
Internal differences, for instance, I know the SRT8 also shares the W5A580, but is it identical to the one used in the other Cherokee's? Ive heard yes and no, what's the real deal internally? Clutch pack differences, different TCM tuning etc?
Also what is the exact difference between the cases and how easy is a swap? Just looking to gather more information for people out there who are looking into doing driveline changes/swaps etc. I know Ive thought about it and looked into it, just never really got too far into it.
Anyway, if any of the experts or people with access to this info could post up, that would be great.
Some useful links I've accumulated:
