Tranny is dieing need input!! HELP!!

Well I have 130,000 on my truck and the other day it started clunking when I would put the truck in reverse. We were out of town camping and on the way home I noticed it starting shifting really slow from 1st into 2nd. When we got back in town I parked the truck and it sat for about a week wnd theen I had to take it in to the ford dealer to the body shop , because I got hit with some hail, the guy`s at the body shop thought it sounded like my ujoints. After I got home I checked the ujoints and the drive shafts , every thing okay. I checked the tranny fliud level ,it was a little high. Next morning I drained out about a quart of fliud and it was black and smelt burnt. So now here is my ? Please post up who you think makes the best built transmission for the 7.3L psd. Thanks for any and all input!!!

Called and talk to bts today and seam like the best way to go!! I really didn`t think for removing and rebuilding and reinstalling , fluids and taxes that $5000 is a great price!! Now I just have to get the $ together and figure how I can get my truck there, It`s only about 540 miles away, but I`ll have to tow it. Any ideals on that one?
