GOOD/AFFORDABLE TRANNY SHOP IN EAST TN

Well I just went through my second tranny. Snapped input or intermediate shaft, I think. I don't have 4500 to get a bts trans. Anyone know any good, affordable tranny shops or persons to build me a solid transmission? Maybe one who can take payments. Haha, but seriously, that would b great. I'm saddened with out the tractor. My Jeep got shown up by a powerstroke today when we had a forklift stuck like Chuck today. ( no offence Chuck)

I never saw this thread, did you find a Tranny shop you were looking for?

There's a good one in Sevierville, TN. Chips I think. There's also one in Seymour, but they do the diesel trannys in Sevierville.

I havent got my tranny done up yet. I talked to Chips. It would cost me the same amount to get a BTS and the warranty would come close to comparing. He did say that there wouldnt be a charge on the labor to install the tranny even though I already got it out. He seemed like a good guy to do business with. Are you running there tranny? He told me there diesel tranny is the "BulletProof" Trans Company that is advertised in the mags and stuff

No, I just talked to them, and came to he same conclusion, for the cost I would go BTS for the warranty sake. Now I have the torque shift.

I talked to Mark at MCN a while ago. If I had a Dodge or a Durajunk, he would be able to do me well, but for a Powerstroke all he can do is order me a Suncoast and maybe save me 2-300. I ended up going with a "BulletProof" trans from Chips Trans in Sevierville. They wr a great pleasure to deal with, dude really seams to know his stuff, decided to go with them over BTS mainly beacuse of the whole shipping deal and this trans I got seems to be compairable to Brians. I also try and keep my money local if possible. So far my trans runs about 20-30* cooler than my last one did, and with a trailer its easily 50* cooler.

Oh, yeah, they gave me a cool hat too
