    SAS Solid Axle Summit #5 Official Thread

    I've got the bigger of the smittybuilt ones. No complaints. I think I got it from 4WP during one of their sales.

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    Would be easier to have it on the transfer case - already set up with switches indicating neutral.

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    20 years of minimizing manufacturing cost and weight. I bet it does shift nicer, but I doubt it's any stronger. Gears, bearings and the like haven't changed since the earky 2000's. The best part of it I see is brand new, and can do it without Additional Alteration (AA)

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    To the best of my knowledge they haven't been manufactured since ~2007 (also the last year they were available in GM trucks). Not too long ago you could find new old stock oddball i.e. ones with external parking brakes for delivery trucks, for sale. You can buy a remanufactured unit for probably...

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    I have zero experience with them, maybe ask in 20 years when they're cheaper 😅. They're supposed to be nice, you'd have to look at how to adapt to cruiser T case, I am pretty sure you could use a NW Fab Black Box, which would be an additional low gear reduction as well as adapter.

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    Take a look at one beside a 4L80. Take a look at one beside an A440. Pick one of each up into the back of a pickup. Take them apart and have a look inside... They're not a heavy duty trans like the 4L80. You can take a stock 200k mile 4L80 and put 15,000 lbs behind it and tow across the...

    LS3 C&C Automatic VS Manual.... thoughts??

    I just swung this into my 62 yesterday. NV4500. They are very stout and although the gear spread is not as "nice" as an H55 an LS V8 doesn't care. Especially an LS3. I have no love for 4L60s. If you are doing a GM engine there are 2 proven options IMHO, NV4500 or 4L80. If it is the convenience...

    Yes there are lots of ways to skin the cat. An even better option would be convert the speed signal from the OEM speedo and feed it over to the pcm. Again, not a lot of time to screw with that.

    Epic. The wife got a good laugh out of that one. Maybe I'll get a vinyl shop to cut that out in old English font and out it across the top of my windshield in 6" letters. 🤔
