Hi everyone , I realize this question has been coming up for years and there have been millions of replies . I have a 2002 2500 4wd 5.9 cummings with all dreaded 47RE . I bought the truck bran new , it only has 91000 original miles , The truck has never been painted and is absolutly MINT with some performance mods .
So here gose , Its time for a trans replacement , I do not plan on going any higher on HP than maybe 500 HP . Im looking to just do a full replacement / Exchange and new TC . I was planning on going with ATS for a very long time , but after reading all the trans threads for what seems like decades Im back to square one
I would like to get every ones opinon on which full exchange trans they recommend ????? ATS has the best hands down warranty going ? And ive heard all the horror stories about how anyone that has had one will never go there again . The thing is some of the threads I have read where some people claim they have had 2 , 3 , even 6 ATS replacement trans covered under warranty but never really exsplain why the 1st or 2nd or whatever trans failed ???????? .
I here a lot of good things about Suncoast , but say there customer service is less than stellar ? I also do not here the best responces about BD transmissions .
Im just like all of you , The best warranty is the one you never have to use . So I guess what im really looking for is opinons on which trans I should go with ? but also the failures you have come across with some of these companies product ??? I realize I need to drop at least 5000.00 on which ever I chose but im hoping for a trans that I can just set it and forget for many many miles ahead .
I do plan on buying a 12000 pound toy hauler this year so I will need a trans thats up to more pulling and towing rather than racing .
