I have posted several questions recently on the loss of 2nd gear in my truck. I had it confirmed by 2 trans shops recently. My latest question (which I'll admit is a :crazy: one) is I need to drive to california from phoenix az in a couple weeks. I want to know if driving my truck that distance roughly 800 miles round trip is going to kill my "new" (mopar "powerglide" with overdrive) trans any quicker. I already drive it 150 miles a week with out 2nd as it is so I don't really see what I have to lose other than a possible tow back home???? Before anyone ask I don't currently have the 2500-3000 dollars to rebuild the trans before then. And other than my truck my only other vehicle I have to use is my General Lee replica. I really don't want to think about the gas cost of driving a 440 without a overdrive trans and 4:10 gears 800 miles is going to be!
