TREMEC is excited to announce the release of a TR-4050 5-speed transmission for two-wheel-drive applications. It’s perfect for truck and SUV enthusiasts looking to upgrade their two-wheel-drive vehicle from an old 3- or 4-speed manual transmission. It’s also a great way to upgrade from a factory 5-speed with a significantly stronger unit.
The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic off-road vehicle. But through the years, the various models haven’t always had the best manual transmissions. For example, the Jeep YJ (1987-1995 model years) and Jeep TJ (1997-2006) lacked a decent First gear ratio, and owners found the transmissions to be less durable once larger tires and weight were added to the Jeep, including heavier axles and other off-road equipment. The factory NSG370 6-speed transmission found in the Jeep JK (2007-2018) was better, but there was still room for improvement in the eyes of Wrangler enthusiasts. The superior First gear ratio and incredible strength of the TREMEC TR-4050 5-speed manual transmission has made it a desirable upgrade not only for the Jeep Wrangler, but also many other light trucks and 4x4 SUVs.
The TREMEC engineering team has been hard at work on yet another groundbreaking transmission. The all-new TREMEC TKX is a 5-speed RWD manual transmission with a compact design, increased torque capacity and very smooth shiftability at high engine RPM, making it the ideal addition for resto-mod projects.
Owners of 3rd and 4th gen GM F-body cars don’t have to search through the salvage yards and classifieds any longer to find a usable T-56 6-speed. The new TREMEC Magnum-F 6-speed gives owners of the late-model Chevy Camaro and Pontiac Firebird a bolt-in manual transmission option capable of handling the power output of modern, high-performance engines.
