Keep us updated as to the long term reliability.
Can you post the link to the install/removal article?
I only have had it installed a few days but I'll let you guys know as time wears on how it's holding up.
The removal and install is straight forward since the box is a stock housing. I figured alot of guys get to the point of needing to replace theirs as well so this will give you an idea of what to do even if you buy a different box. I'll post it in this thread soon.

2764NBS is for a 36 spline box. You may have a 32 spline box spline since only some of the 1999 and 2000 MY trucks had 36. I'll explain in my write up how to tell the differance.

If you don't mind me asking, what did this set you back?
According to Harvey the owner of Red Head he rebuilds each box by hand and custom fits each parts to insure the tightest fit. I do not know if you would consider that beefed up but for sure it will be better then most other reman boxes.
Price was $305. The 32 spline box was less but I don't remember the price. Out the door price was $476 with a $100 of that the core charge. I also asked for return shipping of the core to be prepayed.
