Brady is right on both accounts. Sadly I think I am calling it quits on the ranger after WAAAY too many years. My 74 supercab is it's replacement.

I will be using most of the parts I gathered for the ranger on the supercab, but for now will bolt on an autofab suspension so I can drive it again soon!

As for the c6 - there are a couple ways to do it, but both are expensive.

1 - put a gearvendors behind it.

2 - replace it with an E40D with a stand alone controller. Issue with the E40D is I'm not sure if they have a bellhousing on those that will bolt to your motor. If they do - the E40D is pretty much the same tranny as the c6 but with a freeway gear (per Steve Culhane - race tranny builder).

Get one used. If you can find a used one for $800 or so it's well worth it. Even if it needs a rebuild you can have it done at GV and be in it a lot less $$ than buying one new...

Will do. ALso - if you are a junk yard regular they can be had there for $300 or so. I had a buddy who used to live right next to a yard and he knew the schedule of when the new cars/trucks would come in. He'd grab the d60 fronts and gear vendors and sell them at a profit to fund some projects. He said the GVs were pretty common in the yard by him...

unfortunately - no. I wish I did though.

I have a buddy in San Diego grab crap for me if I need it. Or buy a complete truck and part it out - hahaha.

It's been FOREVER since I really hit the yards. The last few times I've gone I've been completely disapointed and it sucked.

Hey guys, been a while but I wanted to wish everyone happy holidays. Update on the Beast, picked up an Gear Vendors and had it installed, and no I didn't win the lotto. found one on Craigslist for $900.00 bucks so I went for it. Also picked up a set of brand new wheels and tires to boot! Will post some new pictures when I can.

Hi,

What do you think of the overdrive? Did you add it to an auto or 4-speed? (couldn't find that in the previous posts). Let us know what you're driving impressions are, I'm interested in the idea, but I've heard some negative feedback about them regarding shifting delays etc.

I'm also up to hear the opinion (and see pics of) the GV. I've got one behind my c6 waiting for me to put the '74 together and throw it in there.

To answer your question there is no delay in the shifting what so ever. The new set up is great, night and day from the stock c6 and very smooth shifting, it is always in the power band and it consumes less fuel to boot! Turns out to be a pretty good deal, used GV was $900, had to change the shaft in my C6 to the proper length to except the GV so with labor including hooking up all the electrical and not to mention the new speedo cable, u-joint and T-400 coupler came out to $1100 bucks, new drive shaft was $650 and has a slip shaft to work with the suspension travel, not bad considering what it would have cost to buy the GV unit new and start from there. Here are some pictures of the GV after it was installed and new driveshaft as well, hope you enjoy them!
Labor: $1100
Used GV: $900
Drive shaft: $650
Total: $2650
