Exclamation 99 F-250 4x4 5.4 needs a tranny yesterday....

My neighbor lost his automatic tranny today about 1.5 hours from the house. He managed 173K out of the original pulling a 5K enclosed 1/2 of its life.

The Carrolton FURD dealer wanted $2900 to put a 03 tranny in. He said no and another neighbor is towing him home at the moment. The dealer said that motor could easily live another 100-200K the way he drives it.

Why did they spec an 03 and should he spec one when he calls independent shops tomorrow?

What upgrades if any would you look for? He pulls that trailer 90% of the time now though he obviously drives easy if it made it this long.

The only positive I guess is I'm going to take him N. GA to get his dad's recently Garmonized/Suncoasted 24 valve either tonight or tomorrow so he can continue to pull his trailer and work. A week or two of driving that and he'll hate that gas burner. :Thumbup:
