    Do any company sell aftermakret Th350 or Th400, wich one is better and why? Would they bolt on to a 208? Right now auto suits me alot better for daily driver, etc. Plus the kind of romping I do auto is better. Thanks.

    Why not look into the beefy Raptor 700? It would give you an auto with OD and this came mostly connected to 208s. Just a thought. In addition, it has a much lower first gear than either the 350 or 400.

    A th350 is somewhat weaker, but comes with a lower 1st gear. a th350 is what i run in a 3/4 ton, and it does fine. I would recomend the 700r4 as well since it has the OD.
