Default Trans rebuild or replace?

This sucks. Have had the truck for 2 weeks. Thought it was a u-joint or maybe a ring/pinion issue. Well I was wrong. I went to a trans shop today. He told me a bad trans. I will have a 2nd opinion done, but here's my initial question. Given the expense involved, should I (A) rebuild the current trans. (B) look for a low mile used trans or (C) sell the damn truck..??? ok..ok...seriously. The body is immaculate, interior is the same way.....engine is strong, no leaks I have no problem keeping it, but at 130K miles, I dont need to spend more on a trans than the truck is worth.
Also, how do I know what trans is in there. I called one place and he asked if it has the "overdrive drum sensor"? All I know is the following.
1997 Ranger XLT S/C 4.0 ltr engine, 5spd AOD trans.
What year Ranger trans. will fit my truck?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
