    Alright I found a freshly rebuilt TH400 for $500. I also have found a 203 to go along with it for $200. My question is what should I do:
    1. Get the TH400, find a 205 and put it behind it?
    2. Get the TH400 and put my 208 behind it?
    3. Get the TH400, and put the 203 behind it and be done with it?
    4. Get the TH400 & 203, put 203 in garage, run a 205/208 in the truck and save the 203 for if I get doubler setup in a few years?
    I am also open to other options. What problems do you guys see with any of these combos? Any input is appriciated. Thanks!

    If the trans already has the output shaft for a 203 that is the easist. The 205 and the 208 use a different output shaft. You can put the 203 in and be halfway ready for a doubler down the road.[​IMG]
