    Hello all,

    I own a 79 Jeep J-20 Snow Boss (factory plow) came with a meyer e47 7.5 power angle plow from the factory.

    2 questions, i want to build a spare th400 for my truck to swap in incase i pop the tranny in the truck, what parts should i use to make a HD tranny?

    also, my truck as an under dash lift/tilt/plow light controller that is hassle to get to, I want to put in a hand held joystick style controller, is their universal ones available?

    ohh also, should think about upgrading to the e57 pump?

    Thanks for the input.

    should be able to wire in a meyer slick stick which you can mount on the shifter or another concient spot, as far as i know there isn't a hand held for a meyer. e47 is a good pump just carry spare parts,motor and coils are most common.

    a turbo 400 is a pretty stout tranny stock. just a b&m towing shift kit. put the towing one in since the tranny will see alot of heat from shifting alot.
