Thanks man. I needed to do a beater rig build. My F-250 is too nice and expensive to beat the **** out of. My wife probably won't let me drive her Bronco, she knows how I drive.

Picked this up this morning.

NP435 with "Granny" 1st gear.
Pulled the top cover to do a visual inspection first.

Rowed through all the gears and both shafts spun fine. Started pulling it apart for a thorough cleaning and new gaskets.

Lucky for me it came with the tranfer case adapter. I was already looking for one to buy.
