Default Jack's Transmissions

Jack's made a believer out of me. They fixed my T-case, twice. When my case got the Death Whine, I had my sister drop it off at MAPerformance, she lives near them in the Minneapolis area. MAPerformance outsourced it to Jack's, who did a Stage 2 race rebuild using a hardened ring and pinion from MAPerformace. When I put case back in, I must have not had enough Diaqueen in it when I went a mile up the road and back, then added more. T-case had the whine the first time I got over 40 mph. Jack's asked me to please send it back, they wanted to look at it and fix it, my only cost was to ship it back.
I hadn't even heard of Jack's until I got my case back with paperwork. I checked out their site, they are in Colorado, and have plenty of experience with Evo's. I originally was going to go with TRE, but had a hell of a time getting in touch with Jon of TRE. Jack's was easy to e-mail with, fast on e-mail and turn around time with case. I couldn't believe they would fix my case AGAIN at their own cost.
Oh, and if anyone needs help taking out/puting in T-case, I'm an expert now.

That's nice to hear. I've heard of Jack's but it's rare to find shops that go the extra mile.

Dent Sport (DSG) are the same way. That's where I go for transmission work. More than willing to help a customer or even potential customer. Bill Washburn will spend as much time as need to figure out what needs to be done. We've fixed issues over the phone; Other shops would simply state "I really need to look at it, send it in".

I've dealt with TRE and agree that Jon is hard to get a hold of but does good work!

I'm helping a friend rebuild his DSM tranny right now and it's nice to see that Jack's carries all the individual parts on their web site! My tranny is next as I think my 4th gear synchro is toast! Got to love being able to just replace the parts I need to without going to the dealership, spending an arm, a leg, and a testicle on every part! Thumbs up to you Jack's Transmissions!
