At this point I'm trying to figure out something for my steering! ! I'm going to run a Chevrolete gear box and pump. I'm really not ready to drop $740.00 on a hi-steer kit. Any ideas

Not a bad looking build. It is definitely going to be different. I vaguely remember another soy sauce eating rig starting out with that paint scheme.

If you dont already have the th400 i would steer away from one because of the power consumption one takes over a th350. I dont know about mating the tcase your wanting to a th350 but i think i th350/208 would go great in this rig. Looks good man.

Thanks for the input Bro but np208 grenade due to the chain drive input and output and the super thin aluminum case I did change my mind about the trans I'm going with a th350. The t100 tcase is gear driven and its a devorced tcase
