New transmission

Well my transmission has started slipping at wot just wondering who's transmission would be best to replace it. I'm not looking to spend more than about 2000-3000 but would like to get something that will hold up.

Raybestos clutches, SunCoast input shaft, and a River City Diesel torque converter.

I would rather buy a complete one. I know they're are many companies that build them. Just not sure who's got the best for the money I wanna spend.

What'd it cost you if you don't mind me asking. And how long have you had it

I'm still waiting for it to come actually.
It was $3800 plus shipping.

This is good advice! Its what I have in my truck for the most part. Add in a mag hytec pan, and some solenoids/"shift Kit" and its the same. I went with a suncoast converter, but its only lasted me 70k miles. I'm getting ready to pull it and put an RCD in it. I had my local tranny guy build mine, and I had it installed in the truck for under $4k. Its going to be tough to find a tranny that will last for $2-3K. If your willing to jump up to $3500 you should be good.

The only problem with that there's no one around here that can build these trans worth anything.

I know the feeling. My guy didn't used to build diesel trannys. He has historically always just built high HP muscle car trannys. He built the tranny in my last 3 trucks though, and now he does ALOT of diesel trannys in the area.
