Building the NV5600 is not for the faint of heart. If it doesn't need rebuilding leave er bee.

I have heard that the parts to rebuild (syncros) this are on back order....with no est ship date. A friend of mine bought a truck with a bad trans for cheep, when to buy parts.....nightmare started. This was in late sept. I haven't talk to anyone since, but just thought I would say something so you look in to it.

They come and go. Aftermarket only, and aftermarket doesnt keep up. Or just buy new gear assemblies at 400/ea!

So look and keep looking. Eventually some will pop up, better be ready with $$$ when they do.

You will need some specialized tools... as to exactly what, I'm not sure. Try calling Quad 4x4 and they may have some info on what is required.


You can buy the rebuild kit here:
NV5600 Dodge Transmission Six Speed Manual Transmission Rebuild Kits & Parts - Drivetrain.com

Or here (this one's cheaper, but I can't comment on the quality):
NV5600, Synchro & Bearing Kit [CT-BK492WS] - $299.99 : Automatic, Standard Transmission and Transfer Case Rebuild Kits, Cobra Transmission Parts 1-800-293-1848

The last I heard the syncros were supposed to be back on shelves Sept 2012. I haven't checked for awhile but Jamie at cpp seemed to have the best connection of where to find them. My buddy couldn't find them anywhere in aug so he had to go with a rebuild replacement for 3k.

So it pretty much looks like the only choices are find a good stock tranny or go aftermarket
Well talk to your tranny place and see if they can get the parts. It's worth a try to see if you can do it a little bit cheaper

Search this forum for "Fuller" or "FSO6404a" if you are 2WD. Worth a look if you are 4WD, but more difficult.
