    I posted yesterday about the problems with my 700 R4. I got tons of great advice....Thanks guys. I have decide to go to a remanufactured tranny instead of a rebuilding m ytranny for my 90 full size Jimmy.. I am leary of the rebuilders I contacted in my area. ( Utah). I don't want to do this twice!... I am looking for suggestions as where to buy a decent remanufactured tranny with at leat a 24/24000 mile warranty. I want to put as little $$$ into this as the truck will be sold when back on the road. I tried the GM remans and they quoted $1500. I read somwhere that guys were getting them under 1K$. I would appreciate any and all suggestions. Is there a GM/vendors online web- site that advertises on ColoradoK5?
    Thanks

    Put one in mine about 60,000 ago. Tranny was $1350 i think with 'some assembly required' (over the counter!!).
    Was another 400 installed (Non-Dealer), but i was pressed for time. It's still hangin tough and was a 3/50 warr. I'd image most any Chevy/GMC dealer would have a similar arrangement..

    If you are trying to get out cheap just to sell the truck, I would just go to a local rebuilder. They are going to give you at least a 3 month warranty. That will be the cheapest way out.

    Just my $.02
