I'm thinking this truck here has 4,11 in it could be wrong tho. It will pull 11 thousand 600 pounds and go down the road better then the kids chevy with the 5.7 in it. When its that heavy I run it out of over drive. It seems tho that the rpms are high going 55 to 60 that on the light tractors then I ran it in over drive. Seems to get good mileage with it and is in good shape. This trans could of been changed at on time I bought it at a sale for 2000 and for the 5 years iv had it all I have done is grease, tires and oil changes and some lights. That's why its kinda hard to believe the trans needs rebuilt on it having some bad wires in it the oil is good and clean. I looked at the trans and there is the shift linkage on the drivers side and on the other side a big plug of wires plugging in the trans. The guy at the shop said that when they unplug the trans the motor ran great.

I say vehicles are not as good as they were 40 years ago other than fuel economy. Even one mechanic I use say the new cars nobody can work on. I refuse to buy a vehicle made this century unless I was in a position to trade it off every two years.

It may only be a short in the plug in the transmission and not to bad of a repair bill.

Today's vehicles are not necessarily better or worse. Some thing are better, some things should have been left alone.
Electronic fuel injection is one of the best things to ever happen to a car. It can do things that a carburetor never could have done. It fills in the things that were compromised on carbureted engines. With carburetors, some aspects of operating were dealt with by just pumping in more fuel. Fuel injection keeps the mixture correct for the conditions.
Electronic transmissions are a blessing. They have eliminated many unreliable moving parts like governors in particular. Throttle pressure valves, vacuum modulators, and about a third of the valves in the valve body have been eliminated. As a retired automatic transmission rebuilder, I can say first hand that I don't miss a lot of the complicated parts that hydraulic/mechanical transmissions needed to shift into the (hopefully) correct range. Computers can keep a transmission in the right range at all times according to load and driving conditions.
Other things like all of the computer controlled locking, unlocking, lighting, chirping, as well as a host of other unnecessary bells and whistles, we could do without.

Today's cars typically run over 200,000 miles. Cars from the 1960s and earlier were pretty much shot at a bit over 100,000. I think that is an improvement. Older transmissions like the powerglide, ST300, THM350, C-4, C-3, and the Mopar 904 and 998 typically were ready for overhaul around 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Some ran longer, some did not last that long.

Would I like to go back to fiddling with points several times a year? NO!! Would I like to need a carburetor overhaul every couple of years? NO!!

Personally, I think that some of the better cars were in the 1990 to 2005 range. They seem to hold up the best, need the least maintenance, and have good comfort and drivability. My opinion.

It would have to be at least an 87 and be the E4OD trans to be electronic.
