The New Venture 4500 is a great choice to replace the Getrag tranny that was used in the 1988 - 1993 Dodge Truck w/ a Cummins diesel. The Getrag is a smaller gearbox than the NV4500 and will always have the 1-2 synchronizer problems, among others. Although aftermarket parts are now available for the Getrag, the prices are still relatively high. While the NV4500 has had 5th gear problems in the past, we now build all of our units using the upgraded fully splined 5th gear & mainshaft.
Now, here's the REALLY EXCITING NEWS!.... We now have new, lower pricing for our kits because of our volume buying power. When you figure this in as well as the mainshaft upgrade, you have a deal that can't be beat on the planet! We'll also be glad to give you any support needed to install our conversion kits.
The 4x4 is the easier of the two
conversions, as all that's required for the modification is that you cut a small
piece of the floorboard back several inches. There's no driveline work involved
at all & the mounting is a breeze. The price will keep you out of the poorhouse
& you'll have a unit you can really rely on.
The 2WD version is a little more complicated, but it's still easy compared to most swaps. You'll have to whittle a bit out of the crossmember
with a torch, and the driveline has to be shortened some, but that's about the
only difference compared to the 4x4. A new rear yoke & a mount are included in
the package. The price reflects the cost of the added slip yoke for the 2wd
Parts included for these kits are a rebuilt transmission with the fully splined mainshaft, a conversion bellhousing, pilot bushing, mount kit, and yoke (2wd models).
When you call us, don't forget to ask about the great deals we
have on the Amsoil oil & the clutch sets for your truck.
