Couple questions...

Did you put in used tranny'*?
What type of regular maintenance did you perform on your transmissions?
Have you check engine and tranny mounts?
What kind of problems are you currently experiencing that makes you believe you need a new or rebuilt one?

Very odd that you would be going threw that many transmissions. The 4t65e-hd trans is a good transmission. Have the trans tune checked, line pressure, ect.

If you used the old converters, could be taking crap from that?

My condolences on the death of THREE transmissions. (ouch) Were all three the same make and from the same location?

1. What if any mods do you have?
2. Do you have any ABS or traction lights on your dash normally lit?
3. Where are you located and do you have a shop you would trust to put together a performance build for you?
