I'm really dreading when that day comes for me.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

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.

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?

56,000 IIRC. A Devil's curse, I swear. This should be named The Bastard Child of Chrysler Build.

I'd definitly hold out for a NSG if you can find one.
