JW, ATS, Racer x, what do you think

I am looking for a new transmission. The racer x is cheaper, comes with a new cooler and fluid. What does everyone think?

yes but with shipping it is going to be $5150. I like the racer but havent heard much about them so I am not sure. I know the JW is good, and will be around 4600 shipped. The racer will be about 4500, but has the cooler and fluid included. the ATS was a last option.

oh ok. I called the dealership and a standard reman. is 2500. I am really leaning towards the racer x. The only thing holding me back is the fact I cant find any reviews, good or bad.

The only warren diesel I see is 6.0 injectors. I cant remember his name but I talked to the guy at racer x today for almost 30 min. He asked me about my truck and mods and what my intentions are. He was very helpful and answered all of my questions. He also explained the warranty.

Thats his job. He's a salesman. If you cant find any reviews/threads about this companys' tranny, then its a place i wouldnt want to purchase from.
