OD light blinking?

The other day i was pullin a load and i put it to the floor(traffic was nuts) and then when i let out the OD light started to blink? the trans didn't seem to act any diff though? well on the way home pullin the same load i looked down and the light was blinkin again but i don't remember ever getting on it really. the first time it happend when i got to my destination i shut the truck off and it didn't come back on when i drove home with out the load. when i came to pick up the trailer next day is when it came back on? i have a bullydog flip chip exhaust and intake.. it only did this when it had the load behind it. truck seems to shift as normal though.

There's something wrong with the transmission system. It might be inside the trans or one of the sensors outside, or even a wiring issue. The only way to know is to find someone with a Ford specific scan tool to read the code that was stored. The auto parts places that read codes free can't read a Ford trans code.

A 6.0L cooler will help a lot, a bigger pan will only help empty your wallet.
