    SO like, I have never finished this. Still 2wd, still have a 4k rpm limiter...


    We are going out on date night tonight, splitting beers stayong sober, the ultimate goal is for her to find a 2-3 day a week bartending/cocktailing gig so she doesn't go stir crazy being stay at home mom to 5 kidlets.

    We drive to Wallace (Dante's Peak was filmed there) and we see BUILT ass Heeps at the Best Western.. I **** you not, the Peterson's Off Road double header JK was there. I call it the Push me Pull you..

    WTF is the Ulitmate Adventure team doing in the Panhandle?

    Sure as ****... they wheeled the one trail that has been elusive to me, Compressor Creek.

    we Creep them down, drink with Rick Pewe, hang with Dave Chapelle (I could tell you his mortgage payment.....)
    Have a good ol' time.

    Hang withn the head engineer of the Rubicon project, pick up an Ultimate adventure t-shirt....

    And then we start talking with Rick about this swap. They are considering it...

    He sat behind the wheel of my Monstro, felt the gears, and was blown away at the ergonomic perfection.

    "If I didn't know better, I woud assume that is factory"

    FAWK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Walked him through all the BS I had to go through....

    and here is one of the pics...

    Hey new here and I know this a very old post but i figured id try ya i tried ya on youtube too mines a bit different its a halfton pickup but my question is were you ever able to reprogram the computer to get rid of the error codes so it didnt freak out about the missing transmission? and quit worrying about the neutral rev limiter

    there is a place in North Carolina that will for $100, When we are using the rig I can't rationalize the down time, and when it's down (the last three years it's been the "spare car"), we never appropriate the funds... FML.

    I'm crawling under it today to swap out the fuel filter, I'm going to attempt to move the PRNDL switch position to "D" instead of "N:, and see if that eliminates my rev limiter.

    The PRNDL switch was a great idea, had no clue that was where my reverse lights came from, lol.

    Rev limiter is gone, but it loads up now in town at idle, if I leave it in D, so, a re-flash is definitely in order.

    Found a 2wd SuperDuty exhaust y-pipe at the pic n pull in Lynnwood WA today, for $18. I love the 21st Century, living in Kellogg, ID, I didn't have access to pic n piull type yards.... gonna go snag it, looks like it will flow extremely well, and flang to where we are flanged, that will handle first prolem I have.

    ZThen I'm gonna fix the drive line issues, never have installed the super duty hub centric piece at the end, it needs. then... I'm going to address the rotational throw out bearing shifter fork type rattle/clunk it's had from day one... then a re-flash. Then... we see how much I re-fall in love witht he stupid thing
