Yes unknown history stock appearing 4l80e. We’ll see how long it lasts… The Cummins I have is a 215hp/440tq configuration from a 97 mans trans dodge pickup.
That's a rear-lube '97-early '99 model it looks like. I has the 34 element sprag (considered the best sprag of that tranmission) in the direct drum and within the torque rating that GM rated them for, so you should be good.

You got that long extension connector for the rear cooler line, right?

Yes long lube tube for the port ad standard length for the front. I got AN conversion fittings and will run an external derale cooler and fan to keep it in check

Cab interior is beginning to look like something

I ran some fuel lines and began research on using a gmt800 hydroboost system with the dodge pump and gmt400 steer gear. Ordered up the appropriate Fragola AN conversion fitings and -6 AN fittings and hose. More to come on that later

I pulled out the fenders, fender liners, and core support from storage. I wish they were in better shape, still looking around to see what I can source

I have removed all of the obvious items from the engine harness. I only cut one incorrect wire so far, just a ground for the AC switch, not bad!

I picked up a set of fresh fender wells and mounted the fuse box, ecu, and wire harness to see how things are looking.

Here is the first engine bay picture!
