whats a good tranny rebuild kit for my 01 ranger, is shift kit needed

A shift kit requires you to drop the VB back out to install it.

If you think you want one do it now. Save you 100 bucks.

I would not drive my truck with out a shift kit. They reduce heat and increase life. Plus they make the truck feel like a truck.
