Bullet Proof Tranny?

I have a 2001 f250 needed a rebuild, I want to do it right and hopefully only once . I've already dug through the forums looking for a write up but just found cheap fixes for problems , I don't want to just fix it like most I want it to be Bullet Proof. Please somone one with real tranny knowledge help me , what breaks? what areas need some Beafing up? input/output shafts? planetary? Clutches? bands? do I just need some hardend parts? And were can I get these parts for a decent price? But I don't want to skimp on anything so any price, I want to do it myself too. I've rebuilt a few 2wd aods, nothing crazy but want to learn more thanks Tom.

Im looking for hard parts, anything that will break or slip to be replaced with the best part possible, not a simple overhaul I don't want this truck breaking down on me while im beatin the $hit out of it :burnout or towing at 90 uphill, I want it to lock up with a mean converter and not worry about any shaft, band, clip, gear, or anything to come apart, I need some info from a go fast tranny guy not just a master rebuild kit. Please some one who knows there crap tell us how to put togethor the Bullet Proofer Thanks Tom.

BTS won't tell me what I need to replace thats taking food out of there mouth , they just wanna make 1000's building your tranny and knowing what simple parts make it reliable. I don't expect any big company to to give away there secrets, but if you talk to the right guy you can save alot of money doing it yourself . I didn't get to were I am today even owning a psd by paying everyone todo work you can do yourself with a good shop, I sure as hell am not made of money but I love going fast and working on my stuff as little as possible , I try todo right the first time and as much as i can myself to save the $$$ . Some one with tranny knoledge please Tom

good luck with the parts/info search. Just had mine rebuilt a couple months ago. The guy wouldnt give me the specs on the parts he used....just told me not to worry unless over xxx amount of torque/h.p., and I didnt need a chip to boost line pressure or anything else dealing with the trans.
