Merchant Automotive has a long history of building transmissions for customers from all over the country who depend on their truck for many types of applications. The components in the Maximum transmission kits were selected specifically based on our experience working exclusively on the GM Duramax trucks with an Allison transmission.
Why the Work Series?
If you depend on your truck to be there when it counts, the Maximum Work Series Transmission is for you!
Designed to optimize the potential of the Allison transmission even with additional power. Still maintains the smoothness of a stock transmission for everyday use with increased holding capacity when it counts the most. Includes everything you need to not only upgrade the transmission, but rebuild it as well. A truly complete kit to get you back on the road worry free

Just a fantastic kit. Love that I can replace just about everything weather it needed it or not. I would recommend just going ahead and have them build the valve body for you. Yes you can do it. But I built mine and the increased pressures caused issues. So had to order one anyway. Only thing the kit is really missing is the Allison build book. Which they sell here on the site. Throw that sucker in please or make it a add on option. Would have been helpful. Didn't know until after I completed my build. 1 YR and 16k miles in no issues at all. No more trans slip in 5th gear.
