4R70W is electronically controlled, has a higher torque rating, a better gear set and is more durable.

To learn about both go here: Click Click Racing - Click Click Racing You can upgrade the AOD with 4R70W internals and stay non-computer or shell out some $$$ for this: The US Shift Transmission Control System Your 3.8 V6 will probably be fine with a perked up AOD,the 4RW70 mods are really needed for 400+ HP applications.

I had an AOD that was originally behind my 5.0L. After doing the research, purchasing a very low-mile 4R70W and US Shift controller was cheaper than rebuilding the AOD with the beefed-up parts. The bonus was the added control the electronic trans gives me. One drawback is the 4R70W is 1" longer, so the mount is 1" further back. I've had to modify my trans crossmember to work.

If you a looking for the highest torque rating, Ford also has the heavy duty 4R100 that is used in trucks. However, the 4R100 is about 5 inches longer than the 4R70W, so it requires a different mount and a much shorter driveshaft.

If you install a 4R100 and use a high capacity stacked plate transmission cooler (Long LPD, etc.) it should handle your towing without any problem.
