    After a 4 day delay thanks to my bank /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I now have a new bank and left for my trip last Tuesday afternoon /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Left Oregon with a hood, 4 truck cabs, 2 pairs of doors, a 66 GMC pickup bed, inner fenders/cores support assembly, set of 5 36" tires, tailgate, 66 GMC grill, york compressor & air tank... filling a 20 ft trailer and back of my '89 F350 crewcab.

    I returned with a TH400/NP205 combo, set of 5 15x10 rims, SM465/NP208 and other misc. parts... I decided to leave the trailer in IL at my dads farm to save fuel on the return trip plus I could not find the right hitch so it would tow level (the trip out it was nose down and the front tires).

    I got 10.5 to 11 MPG on the way out and 15.5 to 16 MPG on the return trip. I lost overdrive in my freshly rebuilt tranny coming back thru Wyoming with about 600 miles to go. Made it 570 of those miles in drive before it went out completely.

    Thanks to Colin, k5blazerus we made it home then went back out with my K10 and towed it home slowly... Could not get over 15 MPH or it would get squirrely.

    Now I need to arrange a trip to drop off all the parts I brought back with me and plan out a 4 spd/ranger over drive swap on the F350...

    Damn, sounds like a hell of a trip. At least the tranny decided to give up close to home.
