The new American Powertrain Square Body kit includes everything needed to install a 4×4 TR-4050 5-speed 4WD transmission including an aluminum CNC machined Bellhousing, Hydramax hydraulic clutch and components, flywheel and bolts, trans mount, pilot bearing, harness, and shifter, shifter knob, transfer case adapter for 10-spline NP205 and all necessary hardware. Options are available for upgrades including shifter, clutch and more. Based on the heavy duty TREMEC TR-4050, this kit takes advantage of the low gearing for 4×4 applications with larger tires and high torque loads. The 4050 can handle up to 600ft/lbs. of torque and is fully synchronized for smooth shifting and great highway manners.
