    700r4/208/and 33\'s, will it hold up

    on my 87 with a 700r4 tranny 208 t-case and stock gears, if i put a 4" lift on it, will they hold up with some 33's or should i change gears? even after gears is that tranny/t-case combo stout enough for 33's /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    What gears are you running? I've been running the same setup for about 30k miles with 3.08 running gear and no real problems. Doesn't have the pickup on the highway it use to, but I'll be fixing that when my 10 bolt finally poops out and I put my new running gear with 3.73's in. I run a large oil cooler on my 700r4, and keep a temp gauge on the trans. and it never has overheated. Thought I had some slipping from first to second, but it was just my tv cable that needed replacing. To make a long answer short, yes it will hold up.

    Yes, yes and what gears are you running? I've been on that setup for 5 years, most of the time with 3.73 gears. No problems.

    I have had that combo in for about 1 year. My truck has 120K, 10K of it with the 33's. It's been only been on the trail once though, but I did tow my boat a few times. No problem, though it was pushing hard to hold 65 mph. Mine's a 305 though...with 3.42's.

    You should be fine with 33's. IF you go to 35's, YOu might want 3.73's.

    It'll be a dawg on the hills big time with that setup. I'm running 3.73s on the 33's and I usually have to gear down to keep my speed up.

    I've been running that combo for 3 years with no problems. I was told to stay out of over drive though. Prevents the tranny from searching for the right gear I guess. And bogging the engine.

    The 700 likes a large aftermarket cooler...cheap insurance, and well worth it....
