WOuld I be able to take his tranny and put it in my truck his was rebuilt about 6 years ago but hasnt been driven more than 3,000 miles.

    if they are the same ie t350 or 400 or 700r4 then it will bolt right in if you have a t350 and the burb is say a 700r4 you might need to move the crossmember (no biggy) and would need to have your front driveline lenthend and the rear shortend

    About the only thing different in the drivetrain between a 1/2-ton Sub and a K5 is the length of the rear driveshaft. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif If the Sub is a 3/4-ton, then it probably has a Turbo 400, so you would need to move the Sub transfer case to your truck as well.
