As far as the TranSynd, you speak the truth. It's good stuff. I had mine flushed out and replaced last year and it knocked 20 degrees of the tranny temp in the middle of summer even, that's 120* out here, and even hotter coming off the pavement.

I'm just happy I have a lifetime warranty on my tranny.

And it happens more than you even want to know.
Yikes - Thanks for the warning. Even if the accident had nothing to do with the tow vehilcle capacity, like somebody running into me at a light???

If someone runs into you their insurance should cover it, if they have it. I've been hit a couple times and never by someone with insurance.
