Cost of a trans rebuild

So I was looking into the price of a trans rebuild in the local area. I found a place called Shift Right transmissions. They qouted me $1099 with a new solinoid and a TC. And if I wanted the Tugger shift kit....which I would get also, it would be another $180 installed. These prices do not include pulling and re-installing the trans, I would do that myself. So the total price would be $1279. Is this a good price? And also, does any one recommend a transmission shop in the local Chicago area? I know about BTS and suncoast and all them, and they are WWWAAYYYYYY out of my price range, us Marines dont make that much dough.....Thanks in advance for any input.

$1,300 for a rebuild and install??? Sounds more llike a used trans price to me. Shops that charge low prices do low price work, no bushings, used steels, cheap converter, no upgrades, keep your vehicle for a month if you have a warranty problem, etc,etc.

You need to read the whole post.... I said that I would be doing the drop and re-install. They want $1279 for a rebuild with the Tugger shift kit.

i would get a 6.0 TC (or a performance one), BTS VB, billet shafts, and cool it with a 6.0 trans cooler. you should be go to go for a wile. you could take all those parts to the shop and have them install them....or you could just do a ZF6 swap haha
