Fix tranny or New Truck

Well I knew the time would come and I think that it is on its way on the 140 setting my trans is feeling a little on the stupid side I think she has seen better days. Anyhow so now I am trying to decide between fixing the transmission with a new bts, john wood or the like, or just put my truck back to completely stock and trade it in on either a 02-03 7.3 Crew cab six speed, or a 05-07 Crew cab six speed. I love my truck but I would kind of like to upgrade to the crew cab I am not really sure what to do.

BTS and then injectors.

Your truck will be faster then either 6 speed and you will not have problems out of the trans anymore - if you do you have an UNCONDITIONAL warranty.

Also good luck finding an 05+ crewcab manual in anything but an XL... Besides the torqshift is an AWESOME trans for stock and programmed 6.0's...
