Gumby said:I just got back from wheeling mine for the first time today.
During the 1.5 hour drive there it was painfully obvious that I had a 1:1 third with 4:10 axle gears. I couldn't tell speed because my marlin speedo extension hasn't arrived yet, but I was keeping up with traffic OK.
Ditto, on my old V8 60, i would've given anything for a 700R4 overdrive tranny, and that's why I sold the truck. Wound up as all hell at 70 mph, even with 33's. Sell/trade the TH400 unless you're going primarily offroad...
No sweat!! My point was if a guy didn't already have the tranny bought and paid for, then by all means consider the 700R4!!Well, considering a)I just had the 400 rebuilt, b)I actually have the 400, c) I was a steel/sheet metal fabricator for over a decade and d)the beast is already set up for the 400, I think I will stay with the 400. I am not arguing that the 700R4 doesn't have all the other goodies/benefits. Just not the right time for me.
