While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

I'm still awaiting write-ups on shoehorning one of these into a CJ7/8. Considering an accompanying Cummins is only 5.9L, I may have an idea for that new project once my PowerBall numbers hit.

Re: While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

How much longer and heavier would it be compared to an NV4500? Would the extra gear really be worth it?

Re: While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

I like the gear ratios a lot, but nearly 798" long is just too long.

Re: While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

Re: While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

Might I ask if this gentleman driving the V10 '8 has any cooling problems?

Re: While we\'re talking ridiculously expensive...

on a cheaper note.. go to some OLD boneyards.. with old vehicles in them.. and look at those big trucks... and use one of those Clark manual trannies... probably get them for a few grand cheaper than a nv5600.. and some have a lower 1st gear.. somewhere's around 7:1...
