depends where you go, and what al you have done to it. locally here I was quoted 2300 and that was for everything. A BTS trans will set you back about 4000. Or if you feel up to it you can get the parts from Racer X and build you own.

would you have to pull motor to rebuild the tranny in the truck?
or can you just do it while its mounted?

the trans is alot easier to pull than the engine , doesnt work that way anyway, a trans overhaul can be between 1500 and 2300 usually , depending on how bad it is

if it were mine and using it for that , i cant see going crazy with aftermarket parts , a bd power ,ats, or suncoast converter ,which is the main weak point, would be a good purchase , a transgo tugger kit and use borgue warner clutches , and you would be fine i my opinion, a complete aftermarket trans is fine ,but very expensive when a god converter and pressures increased in trans with shift kit would be sufficient

John Wood has different prices for different trannies. I am hauling a 20ft gooseneck loaded with firewood to Vegas with my 97PS. Trailer and wood 17K. John said that I did not need the expensive trannie and I think that I paid $3400 for mine. I made 25 trips last year just to Vegas and it shifts like a dream. Many other trips to Utah and other places in Nevada. I made the right decision to go with John. I am adding another cooler with a pusher fan to keep the trannie cooler when I get in Vegas traffic. Slow going and stop and go traffic will heat up the trannie. TC does not lock up at low speeds and creates heat and heat kills trannies. John Wood or BTS and get a tranny temp gage and get big enough cooler to suit your needs. Good trannys cost $$$$$ and it is well worth it to protect it with the proper cooler or coolers.

$3400 is still a steep price to pay though for a tranny.I just helped my buddy put his rebuilt tranny in friday in his 95 powerstroke and it cost him $400 to just have the clutchs changed,nothing else.He didn't have the money to have it fully rebuilt.The tranny guy works on Ford only trannys and said he could build a hell of a E40D tranny for around $1200 plus the price of a torque convertor.I'm gonna have him do my 4r100 when it comes time or maybe just for the hell of it after I get some mods done to the early bird
