Chevy lower 1st gear (6.34:1) version (should be a '93 or '94 model), completely rebuilt by Detroit Transmissions last year and has maybe 300 or 400 miles on it. Customized to bolt up to, and includes Advanced Adapters adapter for, stock Toyota FJ40 4speed t-case. The transfer case is basically free with purchase of tranny. The t-case bearings are shot because the aluminum case got ground down and filled the internals with shavings. It still works and drives, it just whines like crazy. No parking brake internals either. The NV4500 is awesome, I just find it too long and the 5th gear was great back when I drove it on the street more, but it's rarely driven on the street now, and I'm going a different direction with my drivetrain. The only problem with this setup is an oil leak that I'm not sure where it's coming from. It's not the newly rebuilt tranny, but it may be just the junk t-case, or the adapter, or the seal between them. The tranny rebuild alone cost me $1700, the AA adapters are $660. This is a steal at $1200.
