I will include an update to this when the final results have been tested so this review can assist your own decision.

Great transmission rebuild kit for my Dakota
Perfect transaction. Got everything I needed from the add on options. Asked them a few questions prior to the purchases. Answered me back pretty quickly. Good people to buy from. Thank you.

Could have been easier, but not bad.
Kit came quickly, but was two clutches short. I got in touch with customer service, and they fixed the issue at no cost to me, as well as promised to look into why it happened and prevent it from happening to future customers.
As far as the product itself, high quality and complete with the exception of the aforementioned clutches.
