If you do have to get your tranny rebuilt, let me know what the estimate cost is. I might can sell you a used nv3550 significantly cheaper than you can rebuild yours depending on what is wrong with it.

Rebuild cost $1500, NIB cost $2100. I'm goin to scour the interwebz for an NSG first.

Man, If I needed an NV4500, I'd be in good shape. All over NC4x4 and Pirate, but not a single NSG to be found.

How many miles you have that it went out? Wrong fluid? Or just bad driving?

Dang, that really sucks. Are the newer trannys known for going out earlier?
