      Update a Critical Gear. Your Jeep Wrangler’s reverse gear rotates in the opposite direction to the rest of the apparatus. That’s a tough job. This Vintage Idler Gear replaces your tired factory gear. The Vintage Idler Gear sits between your reverse gear and the rest of your gear box to transmit the torque your Jeep needs to handle the rigors of driving. If you are repairing or rebuilding your transmission, take the opportunity to update this critical gear.

      Solid Metal Construction. Vintage makes their Reverse Idler Gear out of a durable metal alloy according to international quality standards. Vintage designed this gear to be an exact fit to replace your Wrangler’s original equipment (OE) gear. The Reverse Idler Gear is built for Wranglers with AX4 and QAx5 Manual Transmissions.

      Installation. This is an incredibly difficult gear to replace, so you will need expert skills to complete the work. A professional mechanic will need about 8 hours to finish the job.

      Application. The Vintage AX4/AX5 Transmission Reverse Idler Gear is designed to fit 1987-2002 Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ Models.
