Transmission randomly blows without warning, need new one

So my transmission has randomly gone out without warning, no grinding, no sounds nothing.

Just wont shift into any gears.

Its at a ford dealer right now and my extended warranty is only covering half of the repair.

Repair is totaling at $2964 including labor.
Warranty is only covering $1482. I have to pay the other $1482

Unfortunately I cant afford that. My warranty company is screwing me here.

The dealership will install a used transmission but they dont have any available at the moment.

So I need to find a used transmission. And need to know what kind of tranny, what im looking for and any extra's. Dealership just said I need the tranny. Nothing else.

The truck is a 2003 ford f-250 7.3 automatic 2wd.

Please someone help me. I cant afford $1482.

Ive already talked to them. They wont find me anything. Pretty much me or the company working on my truck can.

And unfortunately I'm stuck at this point on where to find one now or what to do =(
