I had one for 5 years only 4x4 ,the tranny finally went I beat the hell out of it.I went through 3 motors before the tranny but if the tranny already has issues its going.It sucks on the highway no power ,if you get it I have tons of parts.


money costs too much!!!

2.8's also use a 700R4. Just that you can't bolt the 2.8 one to the 4.3 because the bellhousing is different. And the bellhousing's are integrated with the tranny.......
The '85 and older tranny's had a bad reputation for failure, but that's generally among the guys that are wheeling and running them harder than you'll run on the street.

The '85 will be carburated. It won't be as good on gas as you might expect considering the small engine and it will not be the fastest vehicle you've ever driven.[:I]

The '85 and older 2.8's had smaller main journals and a two-piece rear main seal.

2.8 with stuff done
