well the truck is my daily driver/tow rig for my built jeep. i just want to make it a bit faster. im just going to do a chip, stuff to make the tranny last.(vb tc). buying a exhaust, and intake next week i think . that seems good for now. im not going to race it or anything like that . mainly its my daily driver and tows about 6500lbs when i can get out to wheel my jeep. thanks again

I believe not much people offer shift kits, just mainly valvebody replacements so they can do a little tweaking with the electronic end of it to make leaps and bounds over a shift kit.

If you want to go to the Valvebody route I'd go Suncoast all the way, they have one they build from new that changes the electronics and everything.

Like they said Suncoast and ATS both make good converters. Also a little cheaper route would be goerend bros. They have good converters for a little over a grand. You might check out HTStranmissions.com they have good VB. My buddy has one in his truck and it shifts firm but doesnt break the tires loose when it shifts if you just want a mild daily driver. But they will set it up for your application. Their VB runs about $400.
