    Well how else am I gonna get overdrive?? Sure I could spend about $2500 on a Gear Vendor or a Dual Range but the tranny I am looking at is about $1700. I'll have some custom work either way...

    /forums/images/icons/grin.gif You do have a point. hehe, I've been wantin a 700R4 too. For the lower 1st gear and OD. Ijust thought it odd that you were gettin rid of the 465, most people want to swap one into thier trucks. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I've researched the swap a bit more and its just gonna be too much money. Looks like I will stick with the 465. My truck has 4.10's with 31's. So if I get 33's it shouldn't be that bad on the highway.
