    No problem they will hook you up I got 4 brand new tires on my car for $120 and they are the touring tires so I save alot going threw them. He will most likley charge you for parts and 1/2 labor if that.

    THE only problem is that all the shops ive called cant really give me a price which I can understand so I came to the conclusion that after its all said and done towing parts and labor i would have put 3 grand into that truckplus whatever i have to put into now its a money pit so im going to cut my losses and buy a ford ranger prerunner or a toyota 4x4

    I had the trans on my 1987 Chevy S-10 Blazer rebuilt by Frank's Transmission, off of I-17 and Deer Valley Road. He's a bass tournement fisherman and can relate to other fishermen's needs. My truck runs like a bear now. I had to go to Wyoming the week after the rebuild, and it ran great. I didn't use 1 drop of oil or tranny fluid on the whole trip, and did the turnaround on $300 of gas!!!
    I HIGHLY recommend Frank!!!

    The truth is,that is a 727 trans in youre truck,one of the easiest and cheapest to rebuild,however,since it is a 4x4 it has a 200 lb t-case hangin on the back of it and all the related bracing and etc.That is why the labor charges are so high:sad2:

    So start the thread or pull the trans yourself.

    Is that because I happen to own one? LOL Toyota all the way baby! A little Tacoma 4x4, in my opinion ONLY, is the best off road truck period (non rock crawling, Im talking trails etc). They are goats, and will climb anything, short wheel base, never been stuck. I love it.
    Oh yeah, 275,000 miles on 97, only thing fixed so far, Power brake booster, alternator. Maintnace itens of course like timing belt, belts, battery. If you like turning a wrench, go American.
