Nice looking truck. The 700R4 is just as strong if not stronger than a 350. It also has lower gear ratio. Forget about an external overdrive. It won't work on a 4X4.Jim

I'm not debating you, but very few people endorse the 700R4 in a heavy duty application. It would be the best of both worlds for sure, nice low first, and OD.
As for the overdrive unit on a 4X4, a quick Google search:

I have been rebuilding transmissions since 1972.
As far a shear strength in low gear I'm here to tell you the 700 is stronger than the 350. That being said the 700 is an overdrive transmission and there lies it's weakness.
The Gear Vendors OD only works in 2WD. Why anyone would want one of these on a 350 is beyond me. I have driven several of these and they are a noisy POS.

Well, if I were going to spend 3 grand, I would just go with a 4L80e, anyway.

Did GM ever put the 4L80e behind TBI? I already have TBI. Could I put the computer in from say a 95 K2500 donor truck? And would the 4L80e match up to my NP205?
