Re: Chevy engine?
Some good points chev jeep, it's always good for a someone who is trying to make a decision on a tranny to hear from both sides. Here's where I'm coming from. I burnt up the 4L60E in my '96 K1500 if February of this year, 3rd and 4th gear gone! I had a bed full of wood and was in OD going up a hill, truck has 80K on it Got several estimates to rebuild it, they ranged from $850 to $1100. The low bid was from a friend of mine, the parts totaled $700! I went with a 50K mi warranty on a dealer one for $1300. No problems yet, but I won't own the truck after 50K mi! If you smoke a TH350 (which I have never seen done), you're looking at $250. Just something more to consider. You can dog a 4L60E (if you have a cooler on them and watch the fluid) but don't expect to get 100K out of it without a rebuild unless you only use it as a daily driver on the road.
