      Hmmm,, bit of an issue developed,,

      driving into town last weekend cruising along all fine and shiz, and it happened,,,

      Rounded a corner and started up a hill, about 3/4 of the way to the top it shifted back from o/d to i believe 4th gear, as it did the rpm's went way up, almost to the 6000 range,,,

      i let off the pedal and eased it back on slowly a few times,, as i crested he hill it must have shifted back into the o/d cause it caught and i continued on my way, ,

      got to a corner with a stop sign,, came to a complete stop,, no worries,,
      lanes were clear , pushed the gas,, no movement, ,
      pulled the shifter down to 2 gear, away i went,, , but it seems i am missing a few gears now,,

      it will take off, shift a couple times, than it's missing one, o/d works, , no reverse though,,

      so off to Manitoba i go to get one after Vroomzoomboom found one for me at a great price ,
      Thanks Tim,,

      yeah there is some crap in the back of the Explorer,.,, but there is a transmission,, :)

      The trans is out and the new one is in and hooked up,, just tidying up the details today, as soon as it's not below 0 c,,

      this is not a job for the average guy ,, what a pain it turned out to be to get the o2 wires, the starter bolts, among several others,,, that caused more then a few cuss words,,

      i'm not going to start any of the lift action till it is a running driving truck again,,
      but hopefully that's pretty soon,,,

      it's a complete truck again,, and running and driving,, it was a haul with the heart not being 100 % that slowed my work down some, but it's done, and i am happy,,,

      next is body lift and then some more , not sure what all yet, but want more out of it,
