Default Rebuild or New (trans)

I have a 2000 Ram 1500 The trans is near dead. 2nd to 3rd shift at 3000 or more RPM. It will kick down some times with very little throttle. If I got to pass someone it wont shift till near 5000 RPM.
After trans repair and a few small fixes it will be a solid work truck again. With only 135000 Miles. I will get a new radiator at the same time so I'm thinking clean trans lines too. any advice would help. Thank

We had one hang up on shifting and it ended up being the solenoid pack. Also, if it hasn't been serviced, fluid, filter, and band adjustment - might be worth looking into. The band adjustment is critical to those every 10K miles I believe.
