Need a trans!!!!

Well i think that I have done enough that I need an aftermarket trans.

Mine is slipping badly!

I use the truck to pull a trailer with 3 zero turns during the summer and sometimes a 2 horse bumper pull. I'm for sure that I will be adding more power in addition to whats in my sig.

Any suggestions and prices?

I have a DTT in mine and I'm really pleased with it, however if I were going to do it all over again I'd probably go with a transmission built by Dave Goerend. Call the following places and see who you feel most comfortable with. DTT, Goerend, HTS, Suncoast, NADP. Prices, it kind of depends on who you go with and what you get in it, which will be determined by what you want to use the truck for. Expect anywhere from $3850-7500.

that's because for an auto you have to replace soooo much with good parts. BUT, don't a lot of aftermarket trannies have warranties?

As long as you don't go over 400hp and don't need the billets parts, you can get a Goerend with a triple disc lock up clutch torque convertor (he does have a single as well) installed for $3600. That would also include 2 of the 3 steel cooler lines, which would be wise to have installed. The plastic retainers run a hole in the lines over time, the OEM quick disconnect fittings leak, and the short rubber hose on the t/c output circuit gets hard and can crack.

The hp bug is an expensive and slippery slope. THOUGHT I'd stop at 300hp. That was few years ago. Over that now.

well dodge did upgrade the tranny lines I believe in 98 because of the issues etc. but I would say get rid of your heat exchanger they just cause issues and make sure to flush your stock cooler really well or you could have problems. Trust me I went through this all in less than a year. Now my trans never sees 200. You will enjoy the better lock up of the converter and the nice shifting you get from a new one. while your there especially since your doing some towing and going to add some more hp upgrade the flexplate too they can crack and you have to pull the trans out of the way to get to it so save time and money.

The thing is that the trans is only about 8 months into a fresh rebuild and I would hate to waste money on all the new parts that were replaced when rebuilt.

The rebuild happened about 2 months before I bought the truck, and when I called the guy that rebuilt it to see what parts were used all I got out of him was a bunch of crap, including him telling me that " i installed a better than stock torque converter".

He also gave me a big lecture about how the truck didn't need more power that it had enough as it was. which was stock when he rebuilt it.

What usually goes into a rebuild and can i use anything out of the old trans to keep the price of the new one down? If I try to rebuild it.
