Yes it is hard on parts, really hard on parts. That's why you see so many conversations about transmissions, traction bars, front ends... it goes on and on. This falls squarely within the "pay to play" arena.

well then why cant they make the tranny that strong?:confused013:
Well look at what a transfer case does vs. what a transmission does. You are expecting that transmission to transfer 600 hp and 1000 ft/lbs of torque while shifting gears. Not to mention fluid cooling. OEM is designed for something complexly different than what a lot of us on this forum want. If the OEM built to our needs then you could safely tack on another 5k to the price tag, and lets face it. If they did that those that could afford that difference would again mod beyond some other drivetrain component's capability.

because a 4500 allison would weigh half what the truck does

A boosted launch is hardest on your output shaft. If you plan on drag racing and doing this then I suggest getting a billet shaft. I think a standard aftermarket trans comes with a billet input but the output is optional because you really don't need it under normal driving conditions. The output shaft runs around $800 I think!!!!!!

Georend has his following but, there are others that build as good if not better.....

The intermediate shaft is the biggest concern when doing boosted launching in 4x. If you're going in to replace the input, it's a good idea to do the intermediate while in there. If you're not going to be doing a lot of boosted take offs in 4x, it's not as big a concern

it wont be a track only truck, but boosted launches may occur frequently ya know. i just dont want to go to the track with the 37s and rip the drive train out from under my truck, but it looks like i should be fine if i do everything right the first time.
