I know this has been done 100 times over but I'd just like some more guidance or ideas. I truly ride an 07 Brute but I came across an old man that had a 2004 Rubicon. Been used on the farm basically not done much with its whole life. But its been sitting for about 6 months to a year. I asked him and he said transmission is junk. He said it runs until it starts to warm up and then slips real bad until it doesnt want to pull. I asked him how much he wanted and he said $500.00 he wanted something new. If the thing was beat up i'd never blinked and eye but its in great shape and if i had to put a trans in I would, but I get bits and pieces from forums about orings bad in them and oil pump bad. Any thoughts would be great. i can work on them myself and make most tools I need. Would make a decent second bike too. I'm gonna order a service manual and pick the bike up this weekend. Guide away. Thanks in advance!!! I don't want to put a $1300 trans in if I can fix it and If it pulls cold wouldnt that be a pressure problem? I've seen it run and it runs great, U wouldnt believe how good shape the bikes in!! Any ideas??
