Welcome to one of the best Ranger Sites on the Web, at least the newest !
There are a lot of knowledgable people on this site and they are willing to share their knowledge base.

Also, just me, but take a minute and add your Truck Info in your signature and it will appear on the bottom of the page, then no one will need to ask you about your truck info or mods.

Perhaps a little too far for us to bring you one but keep us in the loop on the transmission quest! When you are installing it I'm sure we can help with all the little things you can encounter. We may be new but there are plenty of people here that are helpful and work on rangers all the time :)
