2008 Job1 - need clutch solenoid?

From what I have been able to glean from the forums, it seems as if installing a direct clutch solenoid on a 2008 Job 1 (such as the GoGo) is a good preventative measure. Can anyone confirm or deny that statement? BTW - I am running H&S minimaxx on wild (when not towing), but I go easy on the skinny peddle.

do you ever have any issue with your tranny slamming into gear after coasting for a while?? i thought i had an issue with one or two of my selenoids when i was running the IPD Extreme street and Extreme Race tunes. after coasting for a few hundred yards and braking, i would get back on the pedal and the engine would rev then slam into gear. I've since switched to the KEM 345 and haven't had any issues with gear slamming..

I haven't noticed any rev-slam issues...just a hard clunk going into reverse when the truck is cold.

For me the gogo DD solenoid made a huge difference. I had a shift flare between 3 and 4 and it got rid of it completely.

Its easy to install when you drop the pan for a tranny fluid change. All you do is take out the old solenoid and install the new one. Evil eye sent me a diagram of which solenoid it is. I will see if i can find it. If not Doug from gogo will know.
