I'm just putting this out there FWIW. We noticed our 550 has acquired a pretty bad leak at the tranny. It is leaking from between the bell housing and backing plate. Time for another trip to the dealer :doh:

BTW: less than 15K on the clock :crazy:

Well you probably won't beat me. My truck has had a total of about 21 weeks in down time just for the tranny. Last time it was in 7 weeks. Didn't touch it till week 6 and gave it back week 7 still slipping.

with yuor lift, i would start looking at the track bar, make sure the bolts are tight. next, the track bar drop bracket, loosen its bolts and retighten. if you have the pro comp stage 2, check the radius arm bolts too.

I fought this for a while with my old skyjacker lift. the drop bracket was constantly working loose.
