A 4L60-E automatic backs up the small-block, modified with a 2400-rpm, stall-speed torque converter and 6000rpm, wide-open throttle shift points. An Astro van all-wheel-drive, viscous transfer case splits power front to rear to an S-10 4×4 front axle and standard 3.42 rearend. A ’92 Camaro Z/28 steering box is utilized. The rear suspension was lowered slightly and the truck fitted with ’93 Corvette wheels shod with Goodyear GSC tires. On the inside, the stock instrument cluster was replaced with a Sunbird cluster and a Corvette floor shifter was mounted in the center console.
