Has anyone had any experience with these types of shift kits for 4x4's? This kit does not change it over to a manual valve body. I have heard that these types of kits are not as rugged as my stock TH400 in the mud or at the truck pulls. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Most well engineered shift kits raise line press slightly and open up restricted passages to get quicker clutch engagenment and longer life.If you are willing to live with a sightly rougher shift and an occasional bang then its well worth it.Stock shifts are for the masses and need to make grandpa happy,which is to sloppy a shift for most enthusiasts.Go ahead and go for it-keep everything spotless or else it'll never work right again.<p>----------<br>John D<br>
