The TRDL-1071 with the 23:1 reduction low gear was great for the lower horespower and smaller drivelines of the time.

So is that a 3 speed with a hi/low stick? Do you shift it like a 10 speed duplex?

6 speeds forward, lo sets all the number gears down one gear, and 5 speeds reverse.  One stick is 1-5, other stick is low, direct, reverse.  Got some mud behind you? No problem! 3rd gear reverse and floor it! Good momentum, good torque, auto power divider, you're across it before the soft ground realizes what hit it. Just don't stop to second guess your truck or you're stuck.

We still run a 79 with a 2 stick, but it's mixer body is on its last legs. Planning on retiring it in a year.

third gear? fifth was the way to go!

when we were doing the big highway projects building the on/off ramps, we used to get a running start  up shifting until we were doing 30 MPH in reverse. just before the soft spot backpedal so you are not under power in the soft spot and fly rite through it. then back on throttle until you get to the dump spot 1/4 mile away up the ramp.

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..
