I don't blame them the transgo kit is garbage. The jmod is a separator plate change along with updated shift accumulators and different springs. You may want to ask a trans shop that does custom work to help you out with it since places like ammco and cottman aren't going to do it want to do it for you. Or you could invest in the tools and do it yourself or find someone from here in your area that might want to help you. It may seem like a hike but if all else fails you could come out here To Vegas and Supergordo (Gordon) might do it for you. Shoot him a pm if your willing to drive all that way.

Also it's worthless to do a shift kit to in unless your also doing a fluid change to mercon v and adding a transmission cooler and because it's a 94/95 transmission you'll also want to upgrade the transmission pan and filter to the 96/97 parts.

So a brief run down:

Jmod parts
New 1-2 accumulator
New 2-3 accumulator
New Shift spring
Redrilled separator plate or new separator plate or refurbished, etc...
Upper and lower valve body gaskets

Other parts while your in there:
Main pressure regulator valve
Larger 3-4 shift servo and spring
96/97 transmission pan (or aftermarket)
New ford transmission pan gasket (if yours is original or aftermarket)
Transmission cooler

12-14 quarts of your brand choice of mercon v transmission fluid.
And of course labor

I'm also not 100% sure about the 94/95 stuff but iirc they benefit from the new valvebodies, but hopefully someone else will chime in with that information for you.

X2 That is the best way to go with your trans ;)
I have a 95 J-Modded with pretty much the upgrades in Murder's post up above and I absolutely love and recommend it wholeheartedly!
