      Have you tried local auto parts recyclers? You can find remans on EBay.

      If you end up doing it yourself be sure to FLUSH THE COOLER AND LINES before trans install.

      With the 4.0L people swap out the 5R55W and install a 5R55S. Is it possible to do the same with the 4.6L? It would cut the replacement unit cost in half.Try Garcia auto recyclers they are at 35th Ave and broadway, if they don't have one they can check inventory of other yards. Ebay has a few for $1k and up
