My truck is preg-o! (trans-a-mission)

Ok guys my truck is expecting! there will be a beautiful bouncing baby BTS Transmission born on April 10'th!

MAN! I hope its a BOY! Nothing against girls but they have PMS and all other associated issues.:

Just got off the phone with Patti,:bow: Got through on the first try, I don't see what people mean about being hard to get ahold of.:blah: She was very helpful in discussing the details of the transaction. Dropping almost 4000$ in one sitting is a little unnerving :badidea: but just talking with her made it all ok.:hug:

I Can't wait!!!

Now the important part, Mine will be delivered, I won't make it there to install. He will be contacting me the morning of the build to ask some questions.

Just wondering if anyone has purchased this way, What can I expect for questions? I want to have the information handy, and my decisions made before he calls.

I assume there will be some options available for the trans. EX cooler, and so on. Does anyone know off hand what these may be?

I hope I didn't break the smiley server! :laugh_explode: :deadhorse

He will want to know What you have for a chip, He will want to know tire size, he will want to know Build date or Computer code and What you mainly use the truck for. He will also want to know what kind of shift you prefure.

Does the $4000 include shipping and core charge?

Actually so far I believe the base trans work is 3800ish plus shipping and core. I think the core charge is about another grand.

I also purchased off E-bay a 6.0 trans cooler, for 100$ shipped.

Installation, and fluid are extra

Thanks for the info. The 6.0 torqshift cooler is the biggest and best move you can make--so far, cooler wise.

For once I agree with Giant.:wow

Here is a pic of my 6.0 tranny cooler that I got from Brian:

Maybe theres just something in the air or water in Colorado or only on weekends . :shrug:

To add something useful, I plumbed a spin on filter adapter in the cooler lines on my rigs. It adds an extra qt of fluid and provides a fail safe to stop debris from clogging the cooler.
