Question Wondering about a Brian's Truck Shop Trans

Hi all I've smoked my trans for the second time. Was wondering if any one has bought a tranny from Brian's Truck Shop? Also I dont have any mods done to my truck yet. Any Info would be helpful thanks.

Mine just blew the support bearing out for the second time. Wondering if it was a tranny prob or if its something else. I will wait and see what everyone else says. Sunk $2500.00 in it a year ago. Kinda leary on putting $3500.00 or more in it. Just want to be sure that im going the right direction.

just call him and pick at his brain and see what he thinks. my buddy payed 4k but was told he could but what ever he wanted to in front of it and it would hold it. if you need his number i have it just let me know..
