    Really? Please quit. You've obviously never used 4-lo, or at least payed any attention. I can barely hit 5mph in 4-lo and 1st, that would be preety useless.

    I'd get it built up and upgraded to the newer internals. Full roller and 5 pinion planets should last a long, long time.

    I've never heard of being able to do it yourself, but I could be wrong. However, if you could do it yourself do you think GM would have wasted the time on it?

    word


    Go at least 4.10's. You'll kick yourself for doing 3.73's. And 4.10's really won't kill your mileage, since I'm assuming you're stomping on it now anyways if you're asking for bottom end.

    I wouldn't advise doing the swap for mileage.

    However, if you want to talk your wife into the swap the 1-2mpg increase can't hurt your argument. All the little things turn into quite a bit more $...

    What ended up being the problem when it wouldn't start?

    And for a 95 it looks clean. I don't know why but even all the factory trim looks cool.

    In my experience an 8.1 does the same on fuel, so you can take that out. None of them are going to get better than 12 without a lot of very careful driving in a very light truck so I wouldn't worry...

    10blt would be 10 bolts holding the differential cover on, ring gear size is 8.875" IIRC. It could have a 9.5" ring gear 14 bolt also. I'll second the 3.73 or 4.10's. If you have anything but flat...

    I'm wondering how that trans and t-case are going to hold up to the power? I've always heard horror stories about the cyclone/typhoons destroying their t-cases with stock power.

    I'd use the 261, as it's bigger/beefier. It should also match the spline count of the 80's output shaft and bolt right up.

    I've been looking for my 88, and it's been impossible for a 4wd. Seems like everyone uses schoenfields for 2wd's.
