It is a rare aux transmission so if it goes parts are going to need to be machined. It came out of a dump truck then was completely rebuilt then ran for 3k before I got it so I should be good. Still. it is good to plan for when stuff happens then be screwed and need to rent a uhaul to get back home(been there).
Throw it away and just use what's proven to work. Why be different ? It's all added weight with no advantage. Ahhh fukc it it's your cash do what you want.

Judging by it all being 40 or 50 year old parts I'm assuming all this junk was free..
And if like to see some updated on the ups truck with a roll cage build thread as well. It's been kinda quiet..

You say it's gonna stay around 4500lbs and your rocking 1000lbs of rims and tires on rockwells. Your half way there already.

Big block caddy,two transmissions, transfercase, four drive shafts, rocks with wheel brakes,40's, double welded chassis, custom watts link suspension. I'll be suprised if it is under 6000 lbs.
