Re: nv4500...dodge or chevy

I don't know of any "bad" versions of this trans, some rare early versions have a lower first gear is all, but they are impossible to find. The only issue I know of is if you are goin to use your NP231 t-case you will want to find a 4wd Dodge 23tooth version of the 4500, otherwise you will be changing the output shaft, and the 4500 is NOT an easy trans to work on.
