It's a cheaper brand I have never heard of "3Sixty Performance" or something. It's probably a China made one that multiple companies re-brand as their own. Looks the same as Lifetime LED's bars as well.

Send me a good condition BTS 4R100 and the ZF6 is all yours, lol.

You on PSA, or PSN at all?

Why would you want to trade out that ZF6!?! Although I have heard the BTS 4r100 is pretty nice.

Truck is looking fabulous!

Don't get me wrong, I love it, and I'll more than likely keep this trans.

With 35's and 3.73's, it's just 4th and 5th gears (5/6) that suck for ratio in these transmissions: brap, brap, brap, braaaapppp, braaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....

Towing is okay with it, but in the mountains the 4th (1:1) to 5th (OD) gap was a PITA. Granted I'm running pretty high EGT tunes at the moment, but still.

I'll be adding 238/100's, 38R, bellowed uppies, fuel system and traction bars this winter. I think a water/meth system, GearVendors OD (or regear to 4.10's) and DD clutch would make a sick pulling setup...

PS - Congrats on the ZF5 swap! Hard to deny the fun of rowing your own gears in a turbo diesel.

Thats a good point. I understand your concerns. I have that a little bit with mine since I only have 3.55s that came in the automatic trucks instead of the 4.10s which most manuals had. I will probably just swap out the gears as that would be the cheapest.

Sounds like a nice setup you have in mind! Wish I could justify the same but I will likely just do some cosmetic stuff to mine.

Thanks! I cant wait to take it for a spin.

Oops forgot to update this. How do you like the ZF5 Mr Beard? I'm hoping you're not regretting your choice!

Truck has new OUO Adjustable Weld-On Traction bars (best money spent, ever), rear pinion seal, water pump (2nd in 2 years), front axle shaft U-joints, fuel bowl drain valve o-rings, and rad guard/weather front installed for winter. I'm hoping I'm done the repairs for this winter!

Jealous on those traction bars. Always wanted some for my 6.4 when i had it.

No I love the Zf5, I think something isnt quite right with it because its becoming hard to get into 1st and reverse, as well as 2nd and 4th. All in all one of the best things I have done to the truck so reliable now.
