It will handle the power fine. You didn't mention what size tires/gears you have so this is a vague answer. But if you are running 33's or less and 3.31's or better for gears then you aren't working the trans too hard. Get a cooler (if you don't have one) and keep the fluid changed on a regular basis and this trans will serve you well.

My poor 999 did hold up fine until it got its 3rd internal mud/water bath. Actually it still worked fine after the 3rd flushing but i had it rebuilt and the vent relocated some time after that. I got tired of flushing it.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.
