Found my new tranny 7.0:1 1st gear w/ O/D
 
I called on that Clark 5 speed tranny. It's $2350 including all the adapters to mount it to whatever you have. In my case it even includes a 23 spline input for my t-case.

Then I just need the matching D44's with 5.89 gears set up for spring over and I can run 38's with my 4 banger [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Glad to hear. I have heard about that Clark five speed, but know little about it. Is it a really beefy tranny? What are the dimensions?

It's roughly the size of the NV4500 (don't have info here with me) and was designed for big trucks and buses. It's beefier than the NV4500, and obviously has a deeper first gear. The throws in it aren't the nice smooth car type that you get out of the NV4500. If you've driven any of the "truck" 4 speed trannies that some people are using, you get the idea.

$2350? My God, I could buy 2 more Jeeps for that!

How can overdrive be so important? I mean thats enough money to buy 2 littel gas saving econo cars, and not give a ratss rectum about the Jeeps Mileage?'

Not comlaining, just amazed at what some of this stuff costs!

So what's the gear ratio on the overdrive? I was under the impression that even though the Clark's are 5-speeds that the fifth gear was still a 1:1 ratio.

Either .75 or .80:1 for the O/D if I remember right. I still don't have the info here with me though...

FNG you are too funny... I was just doing the math (literally) figuring out your tach reading with 38" tires, your 5.89gears, that .75 OD, and cruising at 60mph you'll spinning that 4 banger at about 2345rpm - that's about what you're paying for the tranny! I think I figured close to 2920rpm at 70mph, are you sure that 4cyl will have enough ponies to do 65mph at ~2600rpm? I'm just throwing it out there for ya... I like the idea though.
Later.

Hey, that's pretty good. That's what I get now with the stock 4.10 gears and 31" tires...
