I'll try to get the name of them for you if you want it.

I got a good used 6speed trans out of a 2006 Rubicon 500 bucks and it's yours. Can help install it also

Nothing. The line to check out would have taken me at least an hour. They had plenty of great camping gear tho!

Yeah I was there last week, place was packed. Went to Walmart today and bought two new batteries for the Dodge and a couple of cool little red flashing bicycle lights to Velcro to the slide out on the trailer. Ill stick them on only when I park somewhere other then in a camp ground. When I slept in Peggy Sues parking lot I kept worrying a truck was gonna pull in next to me and hit the slide out.

I need to make a big decision, either dump money into getting the tranny fixed or it might be time for a new rig

Anybody have any leads on a good transmission shop?
Where is it leaking from and is it auto or stick

When I camp in Glamis (often along the side of a road), I bring 2 or 3 traffic cones for the same purpose. The head of my bed is in the slide, and that would be rude awakening if someone clipped the slide while driving past in the dark...
