Default 4L80E choice to use

I have decided on a 4L80E for my 55, with a big block. I have a chance to buy and am looking at a military surplus 4L80E out of a Humvee or Hummer as the add says. It is with out the top bell housing bolt but has the cooler lines far apart as I heard these are more desirable. Just want thoughts or input on using a transmission that is a military surplus. I know I would need a slip yolk
Thank you

I would avoid it. One its probable an early one (not ideal) and two being surplus means it was beat on. The early ones 91-92 had different internal harness yes can be changed but get as new of one you can find as it will have better parts.

I would look for a 97 and newer, better internals and they updated other stuff.

Can't help you with your tranny question Sam, but it sure is good to see you back here.

The military has a pretty rigid replacement schedule, so you might be okay with one of those. I've gotten some pretty good military battery pull outs before.
Good luck with it.

the price on the one posted is cheaper than most core charges. yes it is a 4x4 unit but that could be fixed at rebuild.
