    I realized I never put up a pic of the trans cooler setup. I had pics of the brackets I made in detail and somehow the pics vanished.

    So since the truck is down for a bit, remember i put the air lift bags on the rear with a tire valve filler? I wanted something i could air up and down from the drivers seat. So I bought their gauge, and a compressor and lines, check valve etc etc. I needed somewhere to put it and didnt want it up by the windshield. So I took the traction control and trans cooler fan switch and moved them down to where the 6 disc changer used to sit, and made a new panel there for it.

    It's been awhile since I read your thread, I was waiting to see if you had any problems with the front hubs and it looks like you didn't? I'm wondering if it's necessary to go to a 2wd trans or if a 4wd one would cause a problem. Did you go that route just because you were buying a new trans or was it necessary? Just wondering in case I decide to follow your lead and go 2wd. If it requires a 2wd trans then it won't happen for me since I have alot invested in mine. I'd be curious to see what my truck would be like in 2wd plus I wouldn't be so worried about adding boost.

    It requires a 2wd trans and driveshaft yes. The offset is you can sell your AWD system and make a lot of your money back. No issues with the hubs.

    Isn't the difference just the adapter at the rear of the trans or is the entire trans different?

    The tailshaft is different but thats the easy part, its the output shaft thats different and requires trans disassembly to change out. Hence the reason it makes more sense to sell a working trans and buy the one you need.

    Ah. Oh well that does it for me then. Not gonna do that, I'll do a 4l80 if I ever go that route. I have a Performabuilt level 3 that I just installed. It's not going anywhere. It was just a thought anyway.

    Bummer. That's twice you've broke that trans and you're not F/I? How much hp you figure you're running?
