Tranny Swap - which one?

Along with my possible fuel tank liner issue in another folder I think my tranny may be crapping out on me. No real shifting issues but while towing my 8k 30 ft trailer I had some shuttering going up hills and if I released the gas pedal I could hear some sound that to me sounds like the flywheel or torque converter spinning with a metallic sound.

So if I do find myself considering a tranny swap, I need to know what setup would be best considering that we are planning on buying an 18,000lb 5th wheel unit. Any suggestions based on personal experiences? Thanks.

im wondering if what your hearing isnt turbo surge when pulling , a wicked wheel will fix that issue , turbo surge you will hear when pulling and when throttle is changed goes away
