99 ranger tranny rebuild - what special tools are needed?

Hello everyone

Got a 99 Ranger (4.0 4x4) that lost reverse. Absolutely no reverse whatsoever. From all preliminary diagnosis it seems the band failed inside the tranny. Apparently common problem for these 4r44/55e trannys from my research so far. So... a tear down and rebuild is in order.

I have rebuilt a few trannys (all of them actually GM trans'... i am GM tech), installed reprogramming kits and shift kits, all without a problem so far. I have a ton of books on 700r4/4l60s, th 350s, 400s etc... but no info so far on a ford trans. Anyboy have any recommendations on a good book for rebuilding one of these bad boys? Most importantly, any special tools these trannys require? As a side note, any of you guys have any experience with these units?

Thanks
