Well I've been up for about 38 hours straight now.

Last night I got into the shop with Eric at around 11... couldn't use air tools (it was late) or the trans jack b/c it was too high to fit under the lift when the truck was on (it would hit the roof when we put it up in the air).

Anywho, long story short - we got it in... and I drove it at 9am... right after adding fluid about an hour north to philly.

I've only gotten on it once after I put about 60 miles on it and from a 30 mph roll heading up an on ramp I floored it and it snagged 2nd, and the truck kicked sideways! This is with a few hundred pounds of tools in the bed, a full tank and the girlfriend in the truck :eek:

So far soo good!!!!

Eric should be on later with some funny pictures!

The chip was burned for a BTS tranny, but I'll still be getting a reburn for the big tune now....... can't wait :woot:




I want to say a huge thank you to Eric (DKR)!

For helping, use of the shop and sticking through with me on this experience LOL :lol: :rofl:

I'm sure his wife will be pissed at me and growling at him for some time!

He snapped a few pictures but we umm.... were VERY tired and exhausted from using HAND tools all night, man that sucks!

Uh, we did a trans?:dunno:

Its all a blur.:doh:

Anyways, yup, hand tools suck. But we were at my in-laws shop and doing this overnight, they have apartments overhead and I could NOT risk bothering them.:doh:

I learned two things, 1. Never start a trans swap at 11 at night.; and 2. see number 1.:lol2:

Oh, and always retighten the damn drain plug BEFORE placing old trans back in shipping crate. I had to go back today cause the darn thing leak more fluid even after we drained it twice!:doh:

I do have a couple of pics I'll try to get up later.:thumb:

Talk to Jody and get him to send you a chip with the trans turned down. But you already know that, typing is therapeutic....LOL

DUDE!!! I'm sorry!!! I didn't even think about that! I should have known!!!!!

Hope your father in law wasn't too mad about that!!!

Besides that, was the rest of the shop clean enough?

I'd text or call you these questions but my phone still isn't working :doh:
