Transmission Advice

Hey guys. New here and hoping I can get some advice. I have a 1999 f250 crew-cab 4x4 with almost 150k miles. The truck run great with the exception of the transmission (4100r). I am trying to decide what route to take. This is a personal vehicle and seldom hauls heavy loads. I am trying to decide if I just throw another stock trans in and call it a day or should I pay the extra $$$ and get a built trans? I like what I hear from BTS and JW but both of those shops are really far from me. Does anyone on the east coast (closer to VA the better) have the reputation/warranty like BTS or JW? I know I can pay to have a trans shipped from either, but the truck runs "fine" and I am trying to save any money I can by dropping it off. I hear a noise between 3 and 4 and 4 and 5. Its getting worse and lately I have had to get out and push the truck forward to get it to start. I believe the truck does not "think" it is in park until I push it forward to make the park sensor happy. I want to drive this truck for many, many more years and want a good, reliable transmission I wont have to worry about. A local trans shop told me to drive it till it takes a $h!t but with my luck that will happen in the middle of nowhere and I would rather just get it fixed now then get stranded. Thanks guys!! (or butch women)

Sounds like it local trans shop has a retard working there. Might not be anything really wrong with the hard parts. Take it to a reputable dealer only for diagnosis or a reputable powerstroke shop. Like an ambulance service that does their own service work and only uses Ford.
