A Jet Transmission-built TH400 with a manual valvebody, a heavy-duty torque converter, and a Summit deep-sump cast-aluminum transmission pan backs the 8.1L big-block. Four-wheel drive comes from an NVG241 transfer case that's been equipped with a slip-yoke eliminator kit and bolted in with an abuse-proof transmission mount. High Angle Drivelines designed, built, and high-speed-balanced the bulletproof driveshafts that use 1410 Spicer U-joints to allow 36 inches of rear-wheel travel without the need for a CV-joint. While we're under the truck, notice the cooling lines; they're protected by the original '73 GM truck frame and plumb the engine coolant to the rear of the vehicle.
