Best Auto tranny?

I've had a fully built suncoast tranny in my truck for 140,000 miles and i just lost second gear. wondering if this is normal for a fairly built truck pulling trailer 5+ days a week? What tranny does everyone recommend. Is there something better than the suncoast / what about cost.

Re: Best Auto tranny?

You're gonna get about a million guys on here saying either BTS or John Wood but there's a reason...they are the best. I personally have a BTS on the way because they're closer to me but if I lived somewhere else I wouldn't have hesitated to buy John Wood.

They can ship. If this were a BTS, you wouldn't be paying for the fix. He will warranty it even out of the 2 yrs. You just have to pay shipping.
