I am still trying to figure out if I have a Getrag, and NV4500. I was underneath my truck the other day looking for the "getrag" that was supposed to be cast into the trans ( didn't see it) and found a small casting on the right side of the trans that looks like a gear with the letters NP cast in the center. I am thinking it means New Process, but I'm not sure. Any ideas on what the hell I have in my truck? I will try and snap some pics when I get the chance.

NP has alot or products, yours should have a red badge on the tranny/transfercase

But would that stamp end up on a Getrag? The floor has a piece of sheet metal over what looks like a hole that was cut bigger. The carpet is cut so the shifter boot is about 6" back of where it looks like it should be. Just seemd to add up to being a NV4500 but can't find any ID stuff on it.

What do you want a pic of? The whole trans, the top, or of the casting emblem? Its in the truck and I don't have a hoist, so the pic will be hard to get. Let me know.

All of the above... Take some general pictures of how the tranny mounts to the bellhousing, t-case, and frame. If there are any tags/stamps/castings you can get to take a picture of those also. I promise you'll have an answer in less than 2 hours :thumbsup

:hyper::hyper::hyper::woot::woot::woot::beer Thats awsome, now I just have to reseal the hole in the tunnel. Its kinda noisy after I took it apart. So anything I need to know about with these trannys besides 5th falling off the shaft. Thanks to all those who helped me out with this. I have more ID ?'s but I'll wait for awhile.
