T-case Questions

What t-case would be in an 89 6lug 1/2ton? And which one would be in a 91 8lug 3/4ton? I have a friend that had a th400 built and put in to his 89 chevy. Now that my tranny took a sh!t on me, I don't feel like spending 3k to rebuild the 4l80e, so I was going to buy this th400. He says its ready to bolt up to my motor im just wondering if it will bolt up to my t-case?

Re: T-case Questions

You know you will be losing your overdrive moving to a Th400. That will probably make freeway driving a bit harder on your wallet.

3k for a rebuild? REALLY? It looks like i better start doing some research 'cause I'm gonna need one.
I see books and manuals available for tranny re-builds. Anybody here ever done one?

I don't really care about O/D, I rarely ever use it specially when I run 38's. I think the th400 will be a stronger tranny for running bigger tires and 4wheeling.

Re: T-case Questions

I can pick up this th400 for $500, it only has about 500 miles on it since it was rebuilt. The guy rolled his truck thats why he is getting rid of it. Which one do you think will hold up better offroad? How much would you want for one of your 4l80es?

Re: T-case Questions

Well I need both of mine so they are not for sale but I would personally go with the 4l80e... I run one in my truck and it has lasted for 173k miles, 35k of which have been with me, and up to that was the previous owner who pulled a 5th wheel twice a month...
