I need a rebuild, what upgrades should I get
I have an 01 F350 crew cab, 7.3, 4x4, dually, flat bed and a heavy front bumper too.
I just got on the highway today and the tranny just let go when I hit about 60mph. I bought the truck knowing that is was going to need a rebuild, I just didn't think it would happen this fast.
I definately plan on doing some towing with it. That's actually the only reason I bought it. Eventually I might be doing some heavy loads with the truck. It's mostly stock, I just got 6 steel 11R-22.5's in and haven't even put them on yet. I know I'll do get some type of piggy back system for the computer, I just haven't had the truck long enough to check on them.
So, after I saw rebuild kits for around $300 for it I decided I had to mod the tranny too. What would be some helpful internal mods for the 4r100? And for my truck since I'm sure it's a decent amount heavier than most trucks out there and I'm going to be towing with it? What about the torque converter? I know I'll get another cooler for it and set up a temp gauge too.
