I am looking at buying a 2002 2500 diesel with the auto and I need a good strong auto with a good converter with low stall and good shift. It also has to be relieable seeing that I live in Alaska and distances are great. But I don't want to spend money I don't have to, seeing the prices very quite a bit.<br>from cheapest to most expensive. DTT at $1145, Suncoast at $1312, BD at 1394, and ATS at $1835. now that is converter and valve body(without shipping) <br> I would like to go with the DTT products seeing they are the cheapest, but I also want something good. <br> what does everyone recommend?<br>thanks- Rob
The first and the last are the most popular and most reliable, all I will say.... :-X ;D

Suncoast converters seem to be a really popular Ford Powerstroke thing. A lot of PSD owners get Suncoast converters. They're supposed to be very well built. I don't know though about these aftermarket converters in general. I don't own a slushbox.

Yeah we are more Civil, a great bunch of Gentlemen we are. ;) ;D Right Jack? Say yes!
AKGoldminer:<br>The only experience I have is with DTT. I'm creeping up on 40,000 miles and the TC and valve body have been in since almost new. I really like the way the shifts are nice and firm. I tow an 11.5K lb fiver, and the Cummins/DTT combination seems to be able to handle the task, no problem. I've towed through the Smokies in 98* heat, and the tranny temp never climbed over 165. I don't think that you could go wrong with DTT.<br><br>Briarhopper, on this site is an ATS dealer, and can fill you in on the ATS equipment. As far as the other two, I don't know a thing.<br><br>Good Luck with your decision.
