A few dozen more out there too.
Costs about $100 to ship a trans from coast to coast.

Lockup sure would be sweet, but I don't think it would pay off well enough for me to have the truck down longer and the extra money to get it together. The highboy will probably see the freeway a couple times in a year. Only time It would go on the freeway is to haul dirt bikes to Nevada... but i'm about to build a little toyota pickup prerunner that will be used for that. Other than that, it will only see the freeway to haul my buddy's crawler to a trail an hour away. It would probably take 20 years to pay off the extra cost of a lock out converter, adapter plate, starter and such.
So i'm going to say lock-out auto's are a no-go, but wouldn't mind swapping to a 518 if i happen to find one somewhat local for a decent price.
