built E4OD vs zf5 with good clutch??
well im stuck i cant make my mind up, right now i have a 97 F350 4x4 auto with a BTS VB shifts nice n firm, but i was thinking about gettin it built with Suncoast xtreme rebuild, 6L TC n the bts VB, but that can get pricey i could most likely find a parts truck with a ZF5 swap it in sell the truck off an buy a good clutch n still be cheaper then building the E4OD.
So my question is whats the better option to do???
I do occasionally tow about 8000 pounds to go offroadin, n just commute to work. another thing thats a factor is im getting a set of 38" michilen XLs so i was thinking a 5spd would suit me better for gettin those tires moving especially when towing, i do have 4.10 gears which suck with the auto because it screams going down the highway.
