    I have heard from an Explorer buddy of mine that they are JUNK. Apparently he had 2 in his Explorer and they both died quick deaths.

    I had my 4L60e rebuilt by them, even after they supposedly run it on a dyno, the thing still doesn't shift right. It does work now, as it wouldn't move the truck before, but something internally is either sticking, or they missed something, as it doesn't like to downshift into 1st gear when coming to a stoplight. You have to get on the gas a second or two, you feel it lug abit, then it drops into 1st and takes off.

    That is the only real problem i have with it.

    They were also a couple of days longer than they told me for therebuild, which put a real damper on things around the house for transportation.

    Nice and cheap for a vehicle to get it running if you are selling it or trading it in (if you're that type of person) but i personally won't go back there for quality work.

    the tranny shop i dealt with in tucson said they have rebuilt several of their rebuilts, they said they don't replace things they should and they are garbage, basically, they take a couple bad trans, and combine parts to make 1 that still doesn't work
