I blew threw the first transmission after a few months. Paid the cheapest shop around to rebuild it. Bad bad bad idea but it still lasted for 4 months. In that 4 months she became my daily while my 4l60e took a sh*t in my 04 silverado.
Changed the gears to g2 4.56 with a 14sf rear so i could stay 6 lug. Never had an issue. While doung the gears my buddy and i cleaned out the axle tubes. Found sea shells and fishing line from playing in the lake so many times. Shes my boat lol
