My experience with Big Dipper

I wanted to thank George at Big Dipper. He built my trans two weeks ago and it shifts awesome. I pull regularly, and my trans used to limp going uphill in Oklahoma in my tow tune without a trailer, but no more! my trans doesn't hesitate going up a steep grade with a 14,000 lb goose neck. He put aside a Saturday to build my transmission, and i got it back Sunday morning to head back home. thanks again George, you do amazing work! I would recommend his transmissions to anyone. He custom builds for any application and his customer service is unmatched.

I had an 01 cummins with a built transmission, and the allison is nothing like it. My dmax shifts just like stock, except it handles all the powa. I went with a different torque converter so I feel it lock up, but its nothing like my old dodge. With the mods in your sig id say your probably going to need a trans soon yourself.

My truck gets driven very easily. Has never been on my top tune. Usually on a 70 hp tune. And tow on a 20 over tune. My truck goes WOT maybe 1 time every 3 months lol
