Exclamation Possibly Getting 02, Need Help!

Hey gang, sold my 2004 Dodge, The trans was just too unreliable. Which is EXACTLY why I am coming to you guys now with this Q.

My buddy has a 2002 4x4 CC on 37s and 22s with 8'' and 96k For sale (im getting). He has some kind of SCT tuner on it, I know its driven hard and soft, which ever he feels is best I guess, I am just worried whenever I get it and detune it, the trans might take a crap while towing my trailers. The trailer could get up to 10k-lbs, but will usually stay in the 5-6k range. I know NOTHING on Fords, Dad owns one with 160k and not one prob, except a blow valve cover I bought him today, Thats why im leaning towards one (reliability). So lend me some help guys Id really appreciate it, just kinda scared to drop alot of dough on something that might fail. Its a pretty big investment. Think I should pass, or go for it?

Thanks Guys

Unless it's a built one them 4r100's can't take the power from these engines. If I lived in the U.S I would have got the BTS trans. But I have the next best to Brian's. the NADP Heavy Hauler.

If I do decide to get it, what am I going to need? A full rebuild, a TC or mixed and matched parts?

Sounds to me like your entering the same situation you just left.

Your right Rocco, which is why Im passing it up, but none the less I do plan on an 01-03 PSD 7.3. I am going to run 33x12.50s and some 20s. I think that tire/wheel combo is great. What else should I do for mods though, such as performance? I tow regularly hm..... bout 400 miles a week, and anywhere from 4k-8k. Would the 33s hurt the trans with all of that towing? I also plan on a tuner, CAI, and exhuast, but Im coming from Cummins, so I have NO IDEA on what stuff to buy. If someone could point me in the right direction, as to which 3 mods I should get, and where to get them, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tuner CAI and exhaust is a god place to start. Look at people signitures to see more mods and browse the forums.

I run 35x12.50's on 18's.

If you look at your stock intake you will see that there is a snorkel that reaches out tojust behind the radiator support. You cut a hole in the radiator support the size of the inlet.

Easiest way is to drill two hole saw holes (2" I believe) and clean up the sides with the tool of your choice. I used a sawzall with a fine tooth blade.
