And the tranny went out last night on the highway. Lost all gears. No grinding or anything. No burnt fluid and no fluid missing. Could something have just disconnected? It does nothing going through cluster up and down but has park

Is it connected on the side of the Trans to actually shift gears?

Go with a 4L80 trans if you are planning to thrash it, (Monster HP).  Actually the stock 60E will fail eventually.  Built, (Properly), will hold up fairly well.  T-case and front diff will handle pretty high HP.

Don't wanna spend all the money or time on doing the 80 swap. Although the smartest decision, this was purchased to use as my work truck which will be used for simmer coal roofing and severally other things. So I went with the strongest parts possible and most reputable shop around me and got it all done for 2500. They also installed a new t case from gm that was supplied by myself. Got that for 1500:)

2 year unlimited mile warranty and some very straight up guys.very hard to find nowadays.they rebuilt my Ken t case tk find out both front and rear housings were done, after they rebuilt it and had replaced the rear:((( still owned up to the work and installed one that I had delivered to them for free. Great guys. Shifts nice and hard but not to hard. And no more t case whine. Now gotta figure out if I should replace the front diff wth a Midwest reman or get the one I have rebuilt. Gears appear fine through the full hole but bearings are probably shot. It never seen so much silver and metal come out of a diff and I've gone through many 10 bolts lol. Anyone got any suggestions??? Thanks!
