Angry 96 tranny out?

So when i thought i was finally gonna take a step forward, now im taking 12 back. Was plowing snow all day today and tonight i was on a straight run when my truck started to slow down. Thought it was the snow piling up until i got to the end of the stretch (about 100ft) and stopped, raised my plow to go forward and my truck wouldnt move. Had to call my brother to come get me, needless to say its setting in the middle of an apartment complex right now. Its a 96 f250 4x4 auto, ts chip on economy, intake, exhaust, 86k on the clock, and bully dog shift kit. Tranny temps were under 150, fluid level was fine (just a lil low...in cold zone even though it was warm, so added a lil), no leaks, when revved up to around 2grand it will start to pull very slightly. Everything was fine then just all of a sudden it went out. wont do anything in anygear or 2wd 4hi or 4lo. just changed all fluid and filter to amsoil full syn last summer. any ideas on whats going on? to check? a way to get home besides a tow strap or tow truck? thanks in advance.

well usually when they go you notice some high temps, just a food for thought question. if you put it in gear and let it idle then put it into park does it make a funny noise at all?

no noises at all. its like you just have the key on not running switching through gears. no noise prior and no noise during. and o/d i keep off when plowing and the light never flashed nor did it have the check engine light on. temps never broke 170 yesterday (watch them close when plowing) and when it messed up they werent even 150.

i was told by the transmission shop it would still drive, just not shift out of low. i dunno. just know they told me 1800 to rebuild it. if i go this route anything i should have upgraded to make this one last. dont have the 1800 to fix it but dont have a choice so i cant afford a whole lot of upgrading to it, but willing to throw a lil more down if its gonna make it a lil closer to bulletproof

ok it doesnt move in 2wheel high but moves in 4wheel low?

I just got a trans redone all heavy duty like bulletproof and it was 3000 bucks. So long as you didnt break any hard parts and its just the forward clutch that went bad you can do a lot for 1800. first thing is get a suncoast kit for it. Bigger better clutches and also snag up a Transgo HD2 shift kit, Part of what kills these transmissions is the slip between gears for those nice grandpa shifts. this takes care of that

No i had a shop do it for me, John Wood is a great guy for a trans but it can be pricey for sure. If you can manage to get a full built trans and plan on keeping the truck a while then yeah get one of his. If not and you arent gonna build up the motor much then a good E4OD HD is solid. Look up a guy on here with the handle STROKE_THIS_F250 or Stroakrcroak (think thats it) They have a trans for sale that might be what ya want
