    If you want to spend the money on the last transmission you will ever need for you truck their are really only two builders in the country that can guarantee that.

    First one is BTS, Brians Truck Shop, He's warranties are second to none. I think it's a 2 year no questions ask return policy no matter what you have done to your truck. Usually he says "Go ahead, I dare you to break it", they can build it to whatever spec you need. And everyone says that are some of the best customer service provided. Many high HP ford have a BTS behind them. I think he's warrantied truck beyond the two year period as well.

    Next one is John Woods Transmissions, similar results here from him.

    You can't go wrong with either one. If you plan on keeping your truck, spend the money now on a built tranny and avoid the extra headache and money down the road.

    My truck will get a BTS when the stocker goes out.


    Hmmmm...On Edit, I just saw that you already had the trans rebuild, guess it's too late, I hope you have better luck with the new trans.

    I looked at the trany shops on the sites i belong to Brians is highley recomended... But i have a problemI use my truck for work and if it goes down time is money and the time to send a unit back to the builder and have him fix it and send it back to me is too long I got my trany back in 1 day becaus he had every thing in stock to do an E4OD . And i saw what he put in to it the 6 gear steel planets new sun gear, the new foward drum the kevlar high energy clutches and the tripple disc billet converter.......and a fast turn around the shop has a good rep .......ussmileyflag

    I run a BTS on my 01 and love it.

    Like anything there are failures...but few and far between with the BTS.

    I've driven very, very hard with the trans running 38-40" tires for the last 3.25 years and it's never missed a beat.
