    Do they make any kits for building up a 700r4 if so where can I find them and how much do they cost?

    Second, how hard is it to build up this tranny?

    there is just a standard rebuild kit. if you want to beef it up, there is ALOT to upgrade. if you have never gone through a auto tranny don't start with this one. it is a pain in the butt if you screw something up because you won't know it until you get it in the truck and start to drive it and them you got to do it all over again. Trust me i did it the hard way. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif there are a couple of special tools that you need to replace the piston seals and something else but don't remember right now. it is a fairly straight auto tranny but deffentely not the easiest.

    If you decide to have someone do it for you, let me know. The guy that did mine did a great job, and he is cheaper than anyone I could find. If your interested, send me a PM. BTW, where are you at in IL?
