Need transmission help in MN

My daughter has a 2003 Ford Explorer in MN and unfortunately has a confirmed transmission failure. The vehicle is in the Roseville/New Brighton area. The preferred fix is a remanufactured unit although I am very open to suggestions and recommendations for a quality shop and/or dealer.
Any input would be appreciated! Thanks, Utahtom

I know of a couple of cool cats on here that just opened a shop in Brooklyn Park area. There call signs are MNDiesel and dlibson. They are a couple of really nice honest guys that could take care of your problem. I would trust them over any shop out there. I would list their number but don't want any trouble from the big dogs. They should chime in to help. Good luck!

Update

Update: Thanks for the replies and private messages. I'm originally from MN and my daughter is there visiting relatives. One of my best friends in MN had his Mountaineer's tranny replaced a few years ago by one of his best friends that owns a Napa Car Care Center- The Explorer was brought there yesterday. Hoping for the best.
Thanks again for the responses, very much appreciated
