Thanks Y'all for the great comments! Awe shucks! ;)

Here is the video that was shot today showing the first test run. All went very smooth! The transmission shifted like butter, well almost anyway. You could feel it but no hard shifts going up or down.

Not bad for an engine that has sat for probably 9 years and only test run about a total of 30 minutes after the installation was complete.

Becky followed in the Jeep while a friend ran the camcorder.

Turn up the sound!

:shock: :shock: huh! bus races! I need to move the team to the pits...

Amazing job for someone with no experience! you need to open a shop to do some for the desk guys like me...

Sounds great when the tranny changes, specially in the first scene when you pushed the pedal...

Congratulations!
