    What trans in a 2000 8.1L 3500 dump truck

    Hello,
    I'm new here and I have a question. I was looking for a cheaper dump truck and found a 2000 3500 dump truck with an 8.1L gas motor. What transmission came in this truck?
    Thank you very much for any information.

    IIRC the 8.1s in the HD GMT800s all got the Allison 5 speed, same as the duramax back then.

    2001 was the first year for the 8.1.

    If its a GMT-800, its the Allison.

    If its a C3500HD 2001-2002, its the 4L80E.

    If its a 2000 for real, its a 7.4 not an 8.1. 4L80E for the 7.4.
