If i come across one while working ill save it for yah, I had to deal with a 6.4 f350 tow truck that had some messed up wiring. Made replacing the engine so much harder.

Nothing wrong with an M5OD as long as you know how to shift. There is to much circulation about them being bad transmissions. I think they work great. Might say im wrong, but everyone also said you couldnt put a 5.0 in an 04+, well I did and retained factory gauges

Well a t5 is geared for a lightweight car. Thats why its in a mustang. M5OD gearing is lower than a t5, it would better suit your application than a t5 would. Really depends on what you wanna do. If your ganna be pulling trailers and mudding an M5OD would better suit your truck.

No id have to do a divorced t case.

I have diesels for pulling trailers and a 79 bronco for the mud. This truck is a DD and dick around truck. Last time I weighed it (with 5.0) it was 3600lbs which is only 400lbs heavier then a drop top fox body. Since I am staying with my little tires I dont think the gearing in a t5 would be an issue
