Twisted Diesel HORRIBLE

Had them do a rebuild on my tranny 2500$. Buddy said 3-5 days. Soppose to do guages and couple other things, Guess what it didnt get done. Took them 9 days. got my truck back half put back together. week later start my truck in driveway and ALL tranny fluid from a non tight hose clamp gets all over my concrete. then go to use 4wd and they didnt even connect that. BOTTOM LINE i wouldnt let them put air in my tires. glad i only gave them 700 up front. im actually buying a ranger so i dont have to drive this truck anymore cause the tranny is just horrible. im gettin a jasper installed for the same damn price soon.


hope they take better care of yall then they did me. this was over a year ago and im sure i have detured alot of work their way and am goin to keep doing it.

cool web site

Buddy was one of my best friend growing up and i thought he would take care of me. BUT............ he still my boy and i would do anything for him just wont send my truck their anymore. Yea i called buddy and never got a call back. its all good. lesson learnd for me. and its really not that unusual i hear alot of their tranny work is not hittin on ****. except for newer truck i hear they are ok. i got a 96 7.3 and i dont think they had a clue.

P.s. when i took the truck their it was shifting perfectly fine. it was leaking from the rear main seal. i said f it truck has 280000 miles lets just rebuid it
