What part number? And price?I put a 700 in my M1028. I had to buy an adapter from, I believe, Advanced Adapters. With this adapter, I did not need to change drive shaft lengths and I was able to keep the stock tail shaft mount. The adapter included a spacer to go in between the tail of the trans & the stock tail shaft spacer/mount. Also came with correct spline to install in the 700 to mate it up to my T-Case. Truck runs way better on the HWY now.
If you go that route, definitely do like I did and get a fixed yoke output. Slip yoke and double u-joints don't play well together.Thanks, good hint about driveshaft, will measure it tomorrow.
If angle will be too big, i probably can use double u-joint shaft, like on my ´74 Cherokee front driveshaft. Will be weaker but this is first thing that come to my mind.
Whatever. It’s your vehicle, do as you wish. You joined this forum and asked for advice. ChevyMike and I offered advice. It’s up to you to heed the advice or not. I am finished with this thread. Good luck.No, i dont have tachometer, rpms measured "by ear" - probably not best way of course.
Estonia is flat and ca 50 metres from sea level everywhere so no driving problems. Only two "real" mountains
And i usually dont carry anything heavy. What i found - without roof truck runs way better, it is quicker from start and overall more nimble.
8 months of s**** ski weather, as we have here, i still drive without roof if even slightly possible
OEM tires are 31", i have 33" now and as i understand bigger ones dont fit anymore without rubbing. And to my eye, 33" looks best on this truck.
I dont worry about resale value, i never sell this truck. But i like to keep things as original as they are.
Well, not really original, as there is winch installed and electrics are converted to 12V.
I agree with ehuppert. A 700R4 with 3.08 gears will stay in 3rd gear most of the time. Especially if there is any load in the vehicle. Or headwind. Not being grumpy, just realistic. Save your money and stay with what you have.700r4 is going to spend allot of normal use in 3rd gear, really negating the cost of a swap! Stick with what you've goy for now and spend money elsewhere on the vehicle!
