If you have enough springs and brakes you shouldn't be too bad.

They must have been much more generous with the heavier trans earlier on. When I was shopping for a '99-'03 it was either a 7 lug truck or a heavily optioned Supercrew to get the 4R100. 7 lugs are uncommon not to be beat to crap and I didn't want a Supercrew.
Like I said, all I know is that is was special ordered, this truck did not come off the lot, it was delivered for the original owner.
thanx for all your answers and info, we have learned a lot about this truck since it broke down.

Your dad has one, Rusty has had two and talking with my brother in law over the weekend he had a 98 with the heavier transmission too. All pre-99 too.

That part of it must not have been as special order as I thought.

The E4OD isnt all its cracked up to be in my opinion. Ive had issues out of every single one ive had besides my current 97.

The C6? Well, never an issue one.
