Which Transmission

Rebuild my current 47re and get a better torque converter for hauling, or rebuild my Allison 1000 5 speed, and put it in my 1999 24v 2500? What is your reasoning behind your answer, what all will I need minus new flex plate and adapter for the Allison to work?

I say stick with the 47re.

As good as the allison is, at some point its gonna need to be rebuilt too. Which is gonna sink you into a bigger hole after you get done sourcing a stand alone tcu, tcase, driveshafts made, etc. I have a lb7/allison in the yard so I can say with experience it's a wonderful unit until you push it past stock power levers. At that point shifts suffer, and you can chuck it into limp mode over and over until it finally dies.

47re however, is already there, imo building that would be a better investment than the allison at this point.

Just my $.02

Unless your wanting to pay for all the swap parts listed above for one extra forward gear, I would stick with the 47 as well.

any list of upgrades I should? This will be a workhorse hauling round bales of hay and cattle in a trailer, and the occasional male stomping on it. I know triple disc TC do you recommend one? I know this is about to get expensive which is what I was trying to avoid but I don’t think that’s possible with this transmission and what I’m needing it to do.

I had good luck with a suncoast triple.

While it's out of the truck...

A good VB, extra clutches, billet band anchor, strut, pin, servos, wider band, all that stuff should get you a decent setup. I would do billet shafts if you're gonna throw some coin at it to make it last. Last thing you want is to snap an input shaft....

I agree...I did the same and Goerend fixed me up on parts and guidance on a high hp capable rebuild. It has been nothing but solid behind big power.
