Just*good*used tranny's here in San Diego average $700-900, and what I paid included tow to the shop and labor to drop and swap, filter and fluids with a warranty. I haven't had the time and don't really have the space to do it myself so no harm no foul.

Those are Fawkes shackle mounts/bull bar relocation brackets

I have no doubt they can handle a good tug!

No idea on the brand of the bull bar; bought it off another member on here.

I liked it due to the shape and opening around my planned winch fairlead.

Replaced TPS sensor, cleaned TB and IAC, which got it running smoother than ever! Then this afternoon decided to give it some volume, and removed the muffler and put on a turn down. Thing sounds AMAZING now, I'm quite surprised how well it sounds with no muffler, and I plan on leaving it like that for now. Started running a little rough after tho, but probably because the computer is trying now to readjust to the new flow, will probably unplug the battery tomorrow to reset everything and let it start fresh, and put in some new spark plugs, which are way too long overdue.

Quick question though, now I have a '99 with the 4.7, and just before the muffler where I cut it off (about two inches before muffler) there was a large round cylinder I wasn't sure what it was. About 8-10" long, and maybe 6-8" in diameter. What threw me, was the pipe going into this, was 2.5" diam, but the pipe coming out, and into the muffler, was 2.25" diam??? Is that supposed to be that size? I though 4.7's were 2.5" throughout? And also what was that thing, a resonator or cat? I thought cat (thus why I didn't also cut it off), but there is no O2 sensor anywhere near it?

Thanks in advance

In the middle of redoing the birds nest of wires I've created from everything I'm running. Easy job just time consuming. And whoever designed the handles on the A-pillars is a genius(sarcasm) PITA just to get the two bolts out because the hole their in is just a little to small for a normal 1/4inch socket
