nbcobra, I have bought and sold quite a bit on eBay. IMHO, your risk increases a lot without feedback on the seller. The seller could be AOK, but the buyer of this item will be testing the waters. The listing states that the shipping is free, but you must make arrangements to have the tranny picked up in Texas. Some sellers sell great stuff, but don't have a clue as to how to pack and ship an item. An item like a transmission can suffer a lot of damage if it is not properly protected. Good luck.
