Rebuilt Transmission Recommendation

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has purchased a rebuilt tranny from "Sun Valley Mercedes Dismantlers". I am considering a purchase and would like to know if you would recommend this company.

I have not purchased a trans from there; but I have had several friends buy parts from this place and have had nothing but good things to say.

I see this was one holy bump of a thread, but figured I would give my thumbs up.

Have 70k on mine, shifts flawlessly since day one.
-Installed at 114k using Blue bottle Valvoline Dex III

-Changed fluid at 140k, pan was spotless. Used Valvoline Dex III

-Changed fluid at 156k (had a brain fart and I thought it was 25k, when it was only 15k), pan was practically spotless...had just the slightest amount of dust on the pan. This time used Redline D4 synthetic

At 182k now. Since I used Synthetic, I'll likely do my next change on a 40k interval, or at ~195k. Maybe I'll find some time and do it early one day. When I do I'll update again.
2008 Black Mercedes E350 4Matic Sport 131k
1988 Pearl Grey Metallic Mercedes 300TE - 198k
2014 Jeep Wranger Unlimited Sahara - 62k
