Randy, now you have my attention! Guessing I'd also need to change the rear end gearing with that set up. What would you charge for the parts, AND what would you charge to install

But I'm doing this on a budget, and sadly, changing the drivetrain is easier / cheaper for me than buying a newer more expensive rig. Plus, with all the work I've already put into this one, I have many things the way I want it (that I'd have to re-do on another rig).
Isnt the MT 643 a 4 speed? http://www.candbsales.com/Images/Int...20mt%20643.pdf

Guys, remember there is a 6/92 FC out there, but I don't remember his transmission, but he did have a two speed rear in it. Dale something from N.Y. state, and this is in a 33fter.
