Even worse when you realize you can buy a TCI Truck Master tranny
(Heavy Duty RV/Towing or Performance 4x4) 700r4 tranny from
Jegs for $1319
I trust TCI tranny's a far spot more than I trust Jasper's
Jaspers does a basic remanufacture, TCI fixes all the weak spots
and beefs it up a bit.
if they're transmissions are like their motors i'd say go for it; i have a
350 of theirs in my 90 model; great motor. I assume their quality would
carry over from their motors to their transmissions as well
Had a trans "grenade" in my mini-van and needed it back on the road and
couldn't get a factory reman in time. So I paid alot more ($400) than the
factory unit. I went for the Jasper also because of reputation. What I
1. They delivered unit quickly
2. I could have had the old one "bench built" for about $500 less than the
3. Jasper seems willing to speak to you quickly (until you have a problem)
as I did.
4. Beware the waranty (not worth the paper it's written on). I had a tech
with 30 years trans experience diagnose mine and said that it has problems.
Jasper won't pay the diagnostic time OR the R&R time. They won't pay for the
incidentals (like fluid) either.
5. If I had to do it again I'd have waited for the factory reman or had it
rebuilt for alot less $$$ and less headaches messing with a company
unwilling to take responsability for their mistakes
Bottom line for me....I wouldn't buy from them again nor recommend them.
