basically i need my truck EVERYDAY. so i would probably buy an allison core, and this rebuild kit and have it assembled....and then put the trans in.....and sell my current trans....but i think in the end that would be just as much if not more than the rebuilt unit linked above.....
or this.....
GM Allison LCT 1000 Stage 5 rebuild kit!!!! 600hp | eBay

Search in the transmission area for a thread called transmission shops near you or something. I'm sure someone reputable is close to you

Doesn't seem TOO bad.

They do stand behind their work.... they actually offer a warranty on their transmissions, which is pretty ballsy...... let alone a fairly good one... 3 years/100,000 miles.

I checked out their website and their work looks decent... but who puts bad work on a website? lol

They did have this listed on their "Customer's rides" section



It has that same transmission, has a twin turbo LMM, tows 20,000 – 35,000lbs on a daily basis, and has supposedly logged over 200K miles on their transmission. So apparently it can take a pretty damn good beating imo.

and as far as customer service.... it says in the description: "You also get my phone number for 7 day a week tech support! Call me with any questions you have when installing and get an expert opinion!"

I'd say someone guinea pig up.

how bout a lifetime warranty like i have?

to the op, theres a guy named Todd, in IL, piero or something like that, i cant remember. Jmaz (John) would know for sure. He builds transmissions to the exact spec that the guy that did mine did. Who is a very well respected, and reputable builder. I would go that route, hands down.

2 things you dont want to cheap out on.....

fuel demands....ie injectors/cp3

I've only bought one built transmission before and that was for my 06 Cummins and it was from Suncoast, never had a problem with it and customer service was awesome. There's no way in hell I'm buying a built transmission off Ebay.
