    Welcome to ya /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you don't have a case and are starting from scratch, the ultimate in strength for serious wheeling is the gear driven NP205. If you are going to be doing a combo of street and medium trail use, the standard NP208 will work good and should bolt right in, or for a little more beef, you could bolt up a NP241 with a slip yoke elim. kit. Good luck. This is the place for all your K5 needs /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Welcome to CK5 dude. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Where in Cali is Lemoore? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    The standard t-case in a '90 is the 241 with the electronic speed control sensor thing. To get the truck operational the fastest and cheapeast with the least amount of hassle, thats what you'll need. A 241 from a '90 or '91 K5. The '89 and ealier models still had mechanical speedo's, so they wouldn't work without alot of trouble. The 241 is the lowest geared of all GM t-cases, which is a plus- I think it's 2.72:1? Someone else will have to confirm that. It's plenty strong for about 90% of the wheelin we do. Yeah a 400/205 combo would be nice, but that is also the highest geared tranny/t-case combo available from GM, and the 400 is a HP thief. I have heard any where in the range of 10-25HP to run it. And not easy or cheap to swap into your new rig.

    And before a certain ass hat on this board can open his pie hole- I have run every tranny available in these trucks, except for the 700r4. 350/203, 400/208, and now the 465/203. All in my '76. I broke both the auto's behind the big block, now the 465 holds up fine. So I DO have practical, hands on experience with the subject at hand. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    $595 for a rebuilt NP241 doesnt sound too bad at all. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good Choice. I was going to recomend you stick with the 241. Its a good T case
    It is the best case for your rig. The other ones that were recomended would of required some mods to work right. You need the electric speedo part on the 241 for your VSS (vehicle speed sensor). The computer on your truck needs the input from the VSS to function properly.
