the headlights fell out in the mudslide, so it looks like this

what do you guys think? should I use a 820 peerless (I found one for $180 but it needs hubs) or get a 700 (I can get one for $50 and I have a 1 1/4" axle for it but I need to machine a keyway for it, sprocket, beaks,and hubs. I have berings for it.) anyone think know witch setup whould be the best for trails, blazing trails, and pulling? please help me, as I haven't owned either one of these trannys before, and I don't know there weaknesses.

I'd go with the 700 and live axle combo. It will be more work for you to set up, but worth it, IMO. You get better gearing options, a thicker axle, no diff to worry about locking, better braking options, etc.

Is the 700 really strong enough for pulling?

I think so, as long as I clean out the old grease, and use all of the mounting holes. I use stock transaxles for pulling, and thy are holding up well. A 700 is just a transaxle without the gear reduction gears and axles.

I think it will put up with it (properly prepped and braced).

on your sketch you need to put the output for the 700 close to the swing arm pivot. MHO
