Which trans is the best bang for the buck

I've been looking at transmissions for my truck and was wondering which is the best one to get and cost effective? That's the only thing I'm worried before my warranty runs out. Thanks,

Depends one what you want to do with it? I have been looking at the road ripper 3000. It sounds like it would handle what you throw at it

I had an ATS trans in my Dodge.....I would never buy one again. Suncoast is the real deal. I'm not saying ATS is horrible, I just think you can get more bang for the buck going with a Suncoast.....Not to mention ATS cutomer service was less than great back when I had thier tranny. Maybe that has changed?

Its a trans that certified transmission makes here in KS. I have talk to 5 different people at the company and it sounds like it would hold up.
