Default Truck transmission rebuild prices ?

Just wanted to see if anybody has had there transmissions rebuilt lately. Was wondering what people are paying.
Took my 2000 F150 2wd in and they want $1800 for rebuild and them doing all the work.
I was thinking of taking a chance with a junk yard one. I might get rid of this truck soon. Just sucks, The truck only has 62k on it.
Thanx

$1800 is cheap, is that including R&R? I was getting that 10 years ago to do a 700R4 including R&R.

Thats for everything, Price does not sound bad. I just hate putting almost 2k in a truck thats worth 8 or 9k and im probably going to get rid of it in a month.

Somebody metioned that it has to be a 2000 or newer to be comparable. I didn't get what model/number that it is.
Thanks

I spoke to my buddy that owns a tranny shop. He said it will work. He said tur truck eith has an E4od (which this) is or a
4 R7OW. The only differecne would be a different starter. I could send you the started that goes with this one if yours is the other.
If you decide you want this one you could have it for $900. We were keeping anything over $900.

I am a trans tech for Team Ford in Marietta Ga. There is no way you can just swap a 4R100 with a 4R70w the pcm is the differance. A 4R100 has a differant shift stratagy and the way converter locks up different. It will not work without a different pcm and trans harness. The starters are the same. If you are at a ford dealer that price sounds like a good price. I also want to say in 2001 they only offered a 4r70w. I think they did away with the 7700# package and that was the only way in that year model you could get a 4R100.

Just found out it is a 4r70w . I heard to it can't be swapped with a different one.
I called some junk yards and they want $700.-$800. range
I already have around $250. for removal and inspection.
So another $250. for install plus the used transmission for $700. I will have 1,200 in it for a used one that might be bad or go soon.
Guess I will just have this one rebuilt. He gives a 3year/36k tranferable warranty to.
Thanks-Guys

Is it normal to have the real fine particals through out and on the pan magnet, I figured thats why the magnet is in there. Transmission guy is saying that could be the problem. He's not sure what the problem is which kinda worry's me about him.

The transmisssion would not go into third right away(few second delay that got worse), Either it would stay in second for a long time or just slip out of gear(like in neutral) before going into third.
