BTS Trans? whos got one?

looks like the input shaft in my trans is done. i had my tranny rebuilt by a local shop 4 years ago, my truck has a dp tuner 80,100,140 chip bb turbo, lift and 38" tires.
Ive done research and lots of people say BTS is the best but, who actually has one? how do you like it and have you had any problems with it and how did Brain deal with it?

Yea, go to Powerstroke ntion and ask!
I have one, it has almost 150k miles on it. 6+ years and two trucks. (Took it out of the first, and installed it into my next one)
I towed almost 70k miles in 18 months and almost all that was at a gross weight of probably 23k lbs. With a Wedge trailer and three vehicles on behind me.

It still works incredibly well, and if it went out tomorrow I am quite sure Brian would take great care of me on it...

I have a BTS. Put it in a few years ago and have just over 40K miles on it. Still shifts the same as the day I bought it. No issues, and I've abused the hell out of it too.

Trust me, if you have to borrow the money it'll be worth it. I never thought I could write a 4500.00 check and smile while I wrote it. (You pay AFTER the test drive, grin) IF YOU go there,,,,,,
