Thanks guys for the suggestions. Will consider both. Don't want to derail the build. Looks good man.

I recently did some upgrades to the truck. I am currently at 64K, so I decided during my transmission service, I would upgrade the valve body. I swapped it out with a HD towing model from Worldwide Specialty parts. I got a new solenoid through them as well. Finally, I had them replace the pan with a PML aluminum pan. I wanted to see if it cools things off any better during my towing in the summer. So far the transmission seems a lot more "crisp." The shifts are smooth and the truck is running very well. I will get a chance to tow next week for hunting season, so I can see how it goes. The transmission pan is nice, and it does have a drain which will make things much more convenient to service next time.

I also ordered some Thuren Fox 2.0 shocks, swaybar links, and the XS front springs. I had not put any mods on the truck for a while, so I figured I would try these out. I could not quite justify the Kings based on price, and the Fox shocks have a good reputation. I can't wait until they arrive. I will post some pics when they get here.

I put a Mag-Tec pan on my tranny and used a 1 ton tranny cooler from a Ram 3500 Hemi. This increased the capacity to something like 2.5 qts. i also plumbed in a tranny temp gauge into the pan.
