what transmission should i go with?

I have a 97 f350 cclb 6" lift on 37"s , I got stuck the other night in a massive snow drift after about 24 hours the plow was finally able to get me out drove the truck home let it thaw out and headed to town. I noticed the torque convert wasent locking and when I got to town I smelt burnt transmission fluid I got out and it was leaking fluid out the front of the transmission, put some Lucas in it limped it home and it started pouring fluid out truck has 177, 000 miles all stock for now, I'm looking into aftermarket transmission and don't know what to go with. The truck is my dd but I do plan on a programmer and injectors when the time comes I don't drag race but would like to pull once in awhile. What to do?

BTS are one and done builds.
John Woods builds various types, depending on what your needs are.

If a trans like those arent in your budget you could talk to a local trans shop and have them build what you can afford. Another option is to do a manual swap

Budget option would be to buy a reman E40D, slap a triple disk converter on it along with a upgraded valve body and drive it until it blows again. If your power levels stay near stock, you should get at least another 177xxx out of it.
If you plan to bump up the power, go with a built unit. BTS is king of the mountain when it comes to transmissions for these trucks. John Woods would be the next bet. There are also BD Diesel, ATS, and RacerX transmissions that have been proven to hold up to some serious power and abuse.
What kind of budget are you on?
