Hello, new to the forum looking for advice if I could please. I have a 2001 f-350 dually with the 7.3, I have owned since 1 year old when it had 18,000 miles on her and now have just over 85,000. Only light mods on it..let's see, 4" exhaust with no muffler,Gearhead tunes,quick spool turbo housing and wicked wheel, BD exhaust brake,Afe intake...I think that's about it.
I use the truck mainly for camping and haul a 10.5 ft Bigfoot cabover camper with a 14 ft flatbed trailer in tow with either 4 wheelers or snowmobiles on it.
This last weekend we went out and on the return my tranny seems to have went south....I'm surprised at its early demise at 85,000 miles but that's where I'm at. It's at a Trans shop now awaiting a rebuild, I would love one of those BTS or JW trannies but living in Alaska makes that option more expensive and time consuming. The shop is going to install heavy duty bands and clutches,a billet TC
and shift kit upon rebuild. My main question is I have seen a lot of feedback on the Tugger kit but this place installs a Superior Shift Technologies kit which I really can't find any feedback on. Does anyone have any feedback on this product? Is there anything else I can suggest they do while in there to give me a more reliable longlasting tranny as an outcome?
I appreciate any and all advice on the matter...thank you.
