    Sometimes things just happen too perfectly. Just as the video started, I had Garth Brooks "The River" playing in the background. The lyrics "I'll never reach my destination, if I never try" were playing just as you were attacking the edge of the hole... :cool1:

    About the tranny .I used to have a Jimmy 87 with a 700 in it and treated that one the same no breakage in almost 4 years it was the 10 bolt and the frame who broke.
    So now with a K-30 with a (hopefully cheaper to fix) 400 and a d60 I feel that it´s a lot of fun to show all the jeepers that this truck is built to last.
    This is now my daily driver and trailrig.
    I know I had a lot of luck with the 700 in my Jimmy.

    TH400 is a TOUGH transmission! If I didn't want OD thats what I would be running, I put my 700r4 together to be fairly tough and am running a huge cooler on it.

    I'v seen a th400 overheated more than once and it just kept on going, we put a cooler on it after the last time though, I should have been running 2nd gear on the back roads so the converter didn't slip so much, was towing my suzuki samurai on a trailer that probably weighs 3k lbs or more!
