$1523??! Holy crap they saw you coming! Parts to completely rebuild an AOD are only $300 to $400. If there's ever another time you need another built, do it yourself! They are SUPER easy to reman, and even modify, yourself. Other than that, she's a good looking truck!!!

I'd like an AOD, the version for carbed engines, want to put it in my 73, believe the plan is for AODE hub to increase clutches and strength.

The only differences I recall between the AOD and AODE is an electronic valve body and some minor, but interchangeable pump design differences.

I want non electronic, other than lockup converter, theres supposed to be an upgrade to a hub to increase the clutch pack, I'd have to look it up again. I want to increase my mileage in my 73, without sacrifice to in town driving, tall gears are bad for the city, and mountains, I want 3.73/4.10 and over drive to make up for them.

Well as long as you're happy, sir! But personally, if I worked at/owned a trans shop, (which I hope to after graduating NADC) I'd probably only charge $700-$800 for an AOD. Plus, probably a little discount for FTE TN members!

The aftermarket loves the AOD, but I personally prefer Raybestos, where possible, for clutch packs.
