    I having this same debate in my head. Converting to a manual would be fun. But for the same cost maybe less I can rebuild what I have.

    A good 4L80 should last a long time.

    Yah. My last one would have lasted a long time had it not run low, then high, on fluid. Stupid burst cooler.

    I vote NV4500 , it may cost more but it will last longer , be funner to drive , and that low first and reverse will be nice at the boat ramp :)

    Burb has important duty Sunday, even with a dying trans.

    Had to bring her home in my favorite truck! Will be getting the 4l80e rebuilt in the next couple months. Manual would have been fun, but the auto rebuild will be easier with this new distraction at our house.
