and when you go to drop the pan, dont pry on it to drain fluid out of it. i bent my pan and ive had it open 4 times trying to get it to seal.

Ok so I cracked open the hood and found that I'm missing the white clip used to hold the TV in place. Ill be making a trip to the junk yard tomorrow to get a new one.

Thats whats causing the weird shifts, I broke the plastic piece that connects my TV cable to the throttle body. Got another one at the JY for $15.

I wanted to add that if you are going to do the pan drop of your transmission, a no mess way to do it that I've found is to get a pump to pump out all or most of the fluid through the dipstick of the transmission. It leads right to the pan and you can just suck it all out before you drop it so that you don't get an ATF shower. Your driveway will thank me.

Pump was like $8 bucks from Menard's, worth it IMO.

Or you could have an aw-4.....which has a drain plug. ::

Dana 35c behind a 242, behind an AW-4, behind a 4.0L Inline Six sitting over a Dana 30, all turning stock 215/75/15 tires and moving a 93 Grand Cherokee to places your truck only dreams of.

Ok so I dropped the pan, changed the transmission fluid and it came out really thick and dark red. Replaces the filter and stuff. Seems to be doing better so far...
