Shaun, man, don't defraud the warranty. Its things like that that drive up the costs for all of us. Plus, most experienced technicians can tell if the wear is from normal use, or abuse.
A properly rebuilt transmission is going to be just as reliable as a new one, plus you will be getting a warranty.
Also, you can plunk down some change and buy and extended warranty.
