Got my transmission taken out rebuilt and put back in for only 535.00 with tax!

I was looking to get a new transmission and swap mine out. Then a friend told me about a place in Indiana that does good work for cheap. I was scared at first because the price was so low and I herd stories about how people say it will be super cheap then you go to pick it up and its 3 times as much. I took it there and they said about a week. They did the job and told me they didn't get it right so it would be a little longer. So I said ok just let me know when its done. It took about 2 weeks but got it back and so far so good. This work came with a 6 month warranty too. Well we will see how it last. I plan to take it to do some hill climbing this weekend.

it costs 500 bux just to r & r a trans, (remove and replace) good luck man, i hope it lasts.

Let us know and post the contact info. At that price I might have mine done down there. It would be a PITA to get it there and back but might be worth it.

went out today and did slow steep hill climbs with no problems. No wheel spin either. I had a blast, the guys I had with want jeeps now. I grinded the old skid plate a few times to. I had way to much fun. The trans is holding good so far.

The trans is still doing ok. I did notice they forgot to put my flywheel cover on and went back and had it put on. I notice they had cut a small part off and aked what happend. They said it was damaged from the bolts baking out and catching it. The said it was before they took it out. I guess for 535 thats what you get.
