The 4 speed tranny 4L80E has an electric control box, and setting one up can be a hassle according to some members here. That is why I decided to go with a rebuilt 700R4. 4L80E is very robust, and is what the military chose. Unless the $11k vehicle was rebuilt with an A2 wiring harness, converting to a 4 speed military style tranny requires some work around.I probably will, I think it’s too good of a deal to pass up. It seems solid, I just have to drive 4 hours away.....
What control box is necessary to make the 6.5 work with the 4 speed?
In Alabama, a lot of girls get tingly with vehicles like these. Haha. Daddy issues or just the vibrations?
I chose to do some aggressive upgrades to turn my 700R4 into a 765R4 in order to make it more stout. The 700R4 is entirely mechanical.
Both upgrades are discussed on this forum. Both are hotly debated as to which is better.
In the famous words of Humphrey Bogart (A long dead actor) in a very famous old movie (The African Queen), "you pays your money, you makes your choice".
