I have the truck in my sig with all the after market parts listed....with that being said with what i have done to the truck and i plan on selling the Quadzilla and getting the EFI live put on....what after market tranny woud you guys suggest me running under my truck.

If Warranty doesn't cover my truck i am just going to throw a high performance tranny under it and be done with it.....I play every now and again and i am constantly pulling low boys or boats.....out of a scale of 1-10 i am probably at about a 7 on how i drive my truck, love blowing the doors off of Cummins and Powerstroke and mustangs or whatever:gearjamin

Just need to know what tranny would accomidate my driving habit and where can i get one put in around my area. I live in East Texas around Beaumont!

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give....I've been told about the Suncoast GMAX, how is it and about what do they run....Also who would i get ahold of to order the right thing for my truck?:help

There is no one in Beaumont i would trust but there is a place in Willis called Relentless Diesel that is supposed to be good or Calvins transmission in Louisiana. If you need a vacation go see Mike L. In California or Big Dipper in Maryland. Texas Diesel Performance in Dallas is good too. I am planning to tackle mine myself but it wont be til next year.

that would be your best bet ^

i drove 7 hours for my trans build. No need to worry about a warranty if you know its done right. But mikes and the guy that did mine have warranty anyways. Because they are the shit

Holton and Chad from Alligator put itm in for me. Fortunately, they're only 20 minutes from me. Give Mike a call. He's great to talk too and can go over everything you need to know.

how much did that cost you? what was the turn around time. Did he build one ship it to you then you send your old one out to him?
