    The dodge has the higher first, and with my truck, (3.42 axle gearing) I really don't use it that much, but second is also higher, to reduce the second to third split. Mine is the GM mid version (smaller input bearing retainer, no synchro reverse, but gear ratios are same as dodge and later GM) with my use, I really should have waited for the early super low first.

    The 241 is as strong as the np208, whether the Dodge or GM 88-91 square body version.

    The nv4500, without an adapter plate is 1/4" longer max. I think machining makes up the differences, because mine was spot on same length as the SM465 I replaced. Although I have seen some photos online where the cases are up to 1/4" off.

    Here are my notes I've compliled. I do have the Dodge gas version. I'm also aware of the 5th gear issue, I need to educate myself a little more on that. This trans and adapter plate were more/less a gift from Microjeep. I think it will be perfect for my truck with 4.10 cogs.

    Right now, I've set my mind on keeping the CUCV belt system. Removed alternators, power steering pump and brackets from the 6.2. Found one broken bracket.

    I knew I should have taken Pic's.
    The pic's are courtesy Sharecroppers old post and fit and look exactly like mine.

    Mine is the one shot of it half rolled because it warmed here and I don't want to take it off.
    Rolling it half way up should be fine and allow enough air flow until spring and it comes off.
    Also turning colder here Friday so all that is needed is to bring back down and tuck back in
    Behind the bumper.

    It is Green (OD) not brown the pic's suggest.
    The last picture is the backside.

    I was concerned about no opening like on the deuce front and my other diesel fronts that I
    Considered taking to the local upholstery shop and having one cut in with zippers, but after
    Figuring the roll up out and pinching it with the closed hood, should be fine.

    It was worth every penny it cost with the added mounting hardware which I would have had to
    Source locally.

    Took me fifteen minutes to remove the three screws and swap with the buttons and drill two
    Holes for the twist locks.

    I have one also. Can’t find pics now.
    Very well made product and easy to install.
    It’s identical to the original 1984 design.
    It is OD in color and looks great.

    I don’t use the bottom spring loops.
    Just tuck bottom behind bumper and works great.
    It fits nice and snug.

    Very easy to take off and reinstall as needed.
    Fold up and store behind seat.
    No rolling required.
    Really cold temps headed this way and I will put it back on today.

    It is worth every penny

    Stripped the 6.5 front.

    Fuel pump (DB4) is coming out next to make place for the 6.2's DB2. Ordered a FlowKooler water pump. Not going to re-use the one from the 6.2.

    Upon closer inspection, my alternators seem to be originals.

    Been cleaning up the electrical on the M1009. Removed the Dixie horns and all the wiring that went with them. Tested the glow plugs and the push button to activate them. Took out about 20 feet of extra wire and cable the PO had installed. Pulled the instrument cluster cleaned up connections and found the 2 small copper spades At the main cluster plug distorted, they are for the gen1 light. Iím thinking of taking it to a local computer shop and see if they can repair it. The engine starts up fine, no smoke, sounds good moves and stops. Itís been sitting in a field for 5 years.

    For those following my squealing belt / charging issue thread....I fixed it.

    After two days of troubleshooting (physically tracing all related circuits, cleaning every connector involved, rebuilding the alternator, and hating GM and the Army) I found that two wires on the back of GEN 2 never reached their destinations and were cut and capped off. Fixed them and boom. Two working and charging alternators.

    I also got my trailer ball and hitch for the receiver, finally. The whole point of this truck is to tow my tractor - which I've yet to do.
