5 yrs ago i had a ford ranger that grenaded a trans while driving 70+ down the turnpike. i bought a salvaged trans and made my first ever car repair(by myself might i add). same situation, no concrete. only gravel. the swap went all right...but i learned a valueble lesson. when reassembling things that have been outdoors....get it extra clean.some grit got on the slip yoke and it put a very slight taper on the yoke and ate that back brass bushing. i didn't find that out until i had already changed the rear seal twice. it ended up costing $800 to have the local trans shop change the yoke,bushing,and rear seal. had i known a fraction of what i know now it would have only cost ~$50. long story short. when working on gravel or outdoors, make sure its clean!
