Transmission Rebuild

Howdy Fellas! I have recently purchased a BTS Transmission which has been finished and is waiting for me to return home! Now my question is, I would be receiving 1000 dollars for turning my transmission in, but with shipping to California will be around 1200 with return shipping included. I would not be making a profit having it shipped back and am wondering, would it be worth it to just keep the original transmission and rebuild it myself? How difficult would it be? I have nothing but time to finish it, and will be purchasing at least one more 7.3 (trying to find an EX for the wife) so it will be put into use eventually. How much would I spend to put built parts back in the transmission? Thanks for the input! I hate Automatic Transmissions but I feel a slow rebuild I could figure out!

My rebuild was around 1300 for tq converter n a clutch kit from Hughes performance. So far so good. It wasn't too hard either.

You aren't going to be able to find the parts that BTS put's in. You can buy rebuild kits cheap and a manual to do it yourself. The TC will be the most expensive part, but I agree with Cary that seems awful high for shipping.
BTW Thanks for your service.

so in regards to a DIY rebuild. how skilled does one need to be? assuming you have a good manual. are there lots of parts? if i can do brakes, my own DIY fuel system etc. but not a mechanic, would i be able to do it? i know almost nothing about transmissions.
