Seems like a fair price to me. I'd go for it since it already has the NV4500 done...but that can also be a can of worms if the "installer" was a hack. I'm pretty picky on how I like my stuff installed.

Yeah the price seems pretty solid for what you are getting, but just make sure you're sure that the previous owner did a good job installing that trans. No booger welds or other sketchy work going on.
If there is, its probably a good indication of the type of maintenance he did on the rest of the truck haha The opposite is probably true too. If he did an awesome job, chances are the rest of the truck is pretty well cared for.

I was wondering what hand tools I'll need whenever I get my '91. Will I be needing metric stuff? anything special I'll need to pull the rear drums, etc? thanks!

yes, you'll need metric and standard wrenches. i'd have up to 18mm and 13/16". you'll need a 2 9/16" socket to remove the rear hub nut in order to get the drums off

in terms of fluid weight, it depends on your climate and how much you plan on towing and working the diff. the more you work it and the hotter, the winner fluid weight you want. the opposite is true as well.

my 1993 FSM says the following:

Anticipated outdoor temps above 90:
sae 140
sae 80w-140
sae 85w-140

Anticipated outdoor temps -10 to 90:
sae 90
sae 80w-90
sae 80w-140
sae 85w-140

Anticipated outdoor temps below -10:
sae why would you live somewhere like this?
sae 75w
sae 75w-90
sae 80w
sae 80w-140

it also adds "a friction additive must be used in 8.25 and 9.25 limited slip differentials. Dana axles don't require any friction additive"
