    Normal wear for manual tranny???

    Was changing tranny fluid after 80k and yes I should have changed it earlier but found this on the drain plug. Any thoughts

    Maybe a little excessive but hard to say. Has fluid ever been changed before? If the fluid isn't to expensive, I would say refill it and then check it again in 5k-10k to see how much metal has accumulated.

    Pretty normal from my experiences. Especially if it’s gone 80k plus on a change.

    That's about what mine looked at at 45k, seemed a little excessive to me at the time too but it's still driving good. Haven't checked it after that yet but I plan to at 50k

    Just changed mine out last week at 80k. Probably never been done before. Looked similar. Plan on doing it again at 90k.

    Had a stick for a few years (jk) as others have said before.. looks rather normal. I would say you are fine. One thing to look out for is excessive brass in your oil also. I make a point to examine the oil that drained out also (I use an open top disposal pan). You don’t want to have too much “gold dust” either.. those are your synchros.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
