    Its lightweight and has a 2.6:1 low range which is decent. IT is aluminum chain drive so make sure it is skid plated and always has fluid. Slip yoke kinda sucks but can be dealt with or can fix yoke it with some custom fabbing and dodge case parts. Also a 241 is a direct replacement depending on spline count (th350/700R4= 27, TH400=32 spline) and that can be fixe yoked with a kit.

    holy crap.....


    sorry but we have had at least 2 or 3 posts asking this EXACT thing in the past few days.


    I'll run down it, again.

    Pros:
    -good low gear ratio(2.62:1)
    -lightweight

    Cons:
    -weak chain drive
    -weak thin aluminum case
    -slip yoke with no kits to eliminate it other then hard to find factory pieces from dodge or ford(think only Dodge parts interchange with ours).
    -no internal upgrades to strengthen

    241 is a much better option, there are SYE kits and upgrade internals for it. Also has a 2.71:1 ratio for an even lower gear setup.
