What did they include with the 3k invoice?
If it is an upgraded 65e and they are removing and reinstalling it then it's not terrible. If it's a reman or they are rebuilding it then that is far too much IMO. Are you able to remove and reinstall it? If so, you can get a stocker for several hundred and swap it yourself. It's rather easy, don't need a lift at all.

BTW I had about that into my 4l80e swap with a freshened up used trans, new circle d billet triple disc converter and trucool 40k swap.

Lol I thought the same thing..... you might want to look at a GM reman trans. They have a 3yr 100k warranty and a $200 mail in rebate. Should be less then what you were quoted.....

I swapped to the 4l80e and have about that much in mine! Got a used trans and had it freshened up and a transgo hd2 kit put In it and a circle d converter. Trucool. and 2 new driveshafts built. I'd hate for you to spend 3k on basically the same transmission and be in the same boat later.

Having no idea what mods the OP has done to his truck, if it's mostly stock then no need for the 4l80. It doesn't sound like he wants to do the work himself and if that's the case no way is he swapping to a 4l80 with a $1200 converter for $3000. Not to mention he would need to modify or get another input gear for his transfer case to work with the 4l80.

It's always frustrating when a vehicle starts nickle and dime-ing you but give it plenty of thought.  Most guys wind up regretting selling.
