Bah, assume that tranny was built to handle it.

Party pooper.

however I like the new Express with the AWD, those would be awesome in wet fields.

<----- Loved the looks of the 95 and up Astro and GMC Safari... Also loved that bullet proof 4.3... especially the 4.3 Vortec HO... Would have loved to see a V8 in there..

Also loved the 94-96 Pontiac Transport... I feel that Pontic should have had a slightly lowered version with an F41 suspension and the 3800 SC... Maybe they should have called it the Transport SC, no one would have known...

I like the newer Montannas as well, but after driving a couple... I'm not sure the 3400 was up to the task..

Do I LIKE vans? NO. But they are very usefull sometimes.

Furniture store I used to drive delivery truck for had a mid 90s Astro with AWD and the 4.3 Vortec. thing was a tough little rig. Came in handy in the winter for local customers that only got a sofa or a couple recliners, jsut load up the Astro and take that thing down the nastiest driveways instead of getting my straight truck stuck at the bottom of some icy driveway.
