comments anyone??
I've been looking into that. I didn't know if the 700R4 would hold up.

I'm not sure if you have a particular interest in the 4bt, but you can get the 5.9 for the same price, sometimes better.

700R4's can be fairly tough if they are built and beefed-up correctly; on gas engines that is, not sure about diesels.
