Angry Smoked my tranny at the tractor pulls

Title about sums it up, I went to the tractor pulls and signed up to pull but wasn't quite sure on what I was going to do for gears. I started a thread a couple hours before the event but didnt get any good info till it was too late. Long story short I pulled a 40,000 pound sled, 237 feet, in 4x4 high and destroyed my transmission... FML

Also if you like your truck, dont pull at all.

Can you get it fixed under warranty?

if you buy a tranny from suncoast it will cost you around $5k plus install. If you have a good tranny guy that can build a solid tranny, then you can buy all of the parts from suncoast and have them installed for a little over $4k. Thats what I have done with my last 3 trucks including my current truck.
