    Ok well i was gettin all excited about holister this weekend....i just go everything done today, Shackle flip, front brake lines, sway bar disconnects, cut down drive shaft etc etc....well any way i took it for a drive to night to make sure i got all the bugs out that shoulent be there...well i am at a stop light and turns green and i hit the gas........and....the FRFEKIN tranny starts sliping like a bitch.....it is winding out every gear...if i punch it, it moves like i am driving like a grandpa...this pisses me off....this is my 3rd tranny thats in there right now since i have owned the truck....this one has made it longer than the rest tho...40500 miles on this one.....well here is my plan...call the dealer in the morn...i have a 36 month/50000 mile warranty on the thing so i am alright there... I am goin to try to get it in tommorow and have them drop a new one in....i really hope i can get it back by friday...or thursday night...anyone think i have a chance in hell of that happening??......why dose this always happen when i have been planning for this for so long??..if i dont get it done i am still goin to show up...even if it means driving the company POS s10 blazer....but i will be there!

    If you're going through trannys like Monica goes through blue dresses, there's a problem somewhere I sure would be looking for.
