Here we are driving down the road in Atlanta, Ga., during rush hour traffic when out of nowhere the truck starts to shake and jerk and no longer wants to go. We make it across several lanes of traffic to the emergency lane and come to a stop. With the hazards on we get out of the truck and see transmission fluid dripping on the ground. Great, I think to myself. How could the trans be bad after just over 2K miles? And wouldn’t you know it? That’s just about how far from home we are.
So we try waiting to see if it was just too hot and after about an hour of cooling we start the truck and try to drive but we’ve got nothing. No forward, no reverse, nothing—the transmission is gone!
Why is it so hard to find someone that can build a transmission that will not only get you where you need to go, but back as well? After spending thousands of dollars to have the truck repaired in Atlanta so it could make the trip back home, it was time to talk to Ultimate Transmission so we could have a dependable truck could travel all over the country with any kind of load and be the truck we know will make it.
