Looking for advice on the best transmission, 4R100
Hey hows it going. Well here is the story, my company bought a E550 toter home. Its 35 feet long, weighs 11,500 empty, and we tow a 36 foot gooseneck trailer with it. The trailer with 2 Jeeps on it weighs about 14000lbs. So this trans has to pull about 25,000 lbs. As far as we know its a normal 4R100, with 33,000 miles on it. So we want to upgrade it before it blows up.
Basically there is nothing wrong with it, so we want to pull it out, ship it to someone, have them build the crap out of it, and we can reinstall it.
This truck is only used for towing that heavy load, no racing, truck pulls, wheeling and or any otehr type of abuse.
So who has the best trannys, at the best prices. And what do you recommend.
Also what performance mods would you recommend? Its a 03 E550, basically same motor as any F series 7.3 diesel.
