CJ with 350 Chevy Transmission

Got an 83 CJ7 with 350 SBC engine. Whoever did the swap never upgraded the trans - stock T4 (also with Dana 300 Transfer Case). Found out the hard way about a month ago when I shredded 3rd gear. Decided to at least rebuild T4 to get me around while I decide on a heavy duty transmission.


Looking at my options seems best may be to go with a Ford NP435. Would need an adapter for t-case and likely new drive shafts to account for length difference on the adapter.


Not really going to wheel with this thing - just get around town on weekends, etc.


Any other ideas?

IIRC ford and Dodge used the NP435 while chevy used the Muncie 465. The 435 came with 2 different granny ratios. The 435 L or E comes with a 655:1 granny and the A and D version were something like 470:1 granny. Novac and Advanced have lots of info on particulars and fitment to various engines and TC's. I once would not own a automatic. Although both my 4x4 are manuals, Id much enjoy not shifting and using 3 feet to wheel.

Yeah Muncie would be another choice. Didnt realize it was compatible with Dana 300 TC. Thanks for the suggestion.
