Need tranny info??

hey everyone im new here but not to powerstrokes. mine is a 2000 f350 superduty crew cab 4x4 with the auto tranny. this tranny has died on my once because of the oil pump but was under warranty so it was no sweat on my brow. but now i bought a sand rail and have 3 quads and my current 32ft 5ther wont cut it. im thinking of getting a ATS transmission but i was wondering if i could be able to tow a 18,000 trailer with it? and ive been seeing a lot of john wood being thrown around? who is he and could he possible rebuild my tranny to pull 18k pounds or more? i only have 3 1/2 Dp with 4 inches from the tranny back. KNN intake and edge tuner and banks compressor wheel. i have the usual se of gauges bosst pyro and trans. i have about 6k to play with and would like to do a fully built tranny and maybe up my gearing from 3.73 to 4.10's. i do a lot of towing to glamis so im not maken too much power. probally 330 at the crank. i just want reliable puller without buying a new truck. plus it only has 31000 original miles! so it would not be worth trading in to me! thanks again.


oh and i forgot its not lifted but it does have 285/75/16 nitto terra grapplers. i dont know if that makes a diffrence. thanks again!

I wouldn't go with ats.


Go with a BTS(Brains Truck Shop) or John Wood Tranny. You won't be dissapointed.

And yes they can both build one to whatever specs you want

Jonathon or John Although technically i have a list of nicknames the length of I-95, so call me what ya like



Current Truck--1999.5 F350 ext cab short bed SRW Lariat 4x4 ZF-6. 4" lift, 35's, exhaust, intake, chip, and more.

heard nothing but good things about John Woods.He as a stage 1 tow master tranny for a good price that would probably handle what your planning.Call and talk to him.I guess he even has a thing where you show up in the morning,he rebuilds it and has you back on the road by the end of the day.Can't beat that.
