Has anyone had an older ('93) F-250 HD transmission rebuilt? Roughly - what was the cost?

(this WASN'T in this year's budget!)

I have not had one done lately, but I understand they run about $3,000 +- to get one done.

I dont know where you live but there is a shop run by John Wood in Holtville, CA that builds very good transmissons. His web site is http://www.jwtt.com/

I had one rebuilt 2 years ago and the price was $1650.00 with new TQ converter. If you can get to John Woods shop the job will be done right.
Have you had it done yet?

E4OD, right? I had our rebuilt with upgrades and a 3 year/36K mile warranty for $3,300. One year warranty was less than $2,000 in 2004.

BTS makes a bullet proof transmission for the FOrds. He rebuilds them using all new gears and components as well as a heavy duty torque converter. You can find him as one of the sponsors on The Dieselstop website at www.thedieselstop.com. Go into the forums or the sponsors page and you can find his info there. BTS stands for Brians Truck Shop. People swear by them. I have a friend who has one in his truck. I will be getting one when I need a new tranny.

I think BTS is the best one going. I researched this before and was gonna go that route before I traded my old F-250 in. Good luck with whatever you decide.

When my '00 went out I checked BTS. However, my local tranny shop did a heavy duty rebuild.. HD torque converter and heavy duty bearings/bushings. My son has it and it's a towing fool now.

Ask your local shop.. they should be able to do the standard Ford spec rebuild or do the HD build.. especially if they are into doing racing trannys.
