TransGo Shift Kit--545RFE

Who here has done the install thereself? I read the insructions and it dosn't seem too hard. I might as well change the fluid and sump filter while im in there. Im not that mechnically inclined but I put my own lift on. Should this be something I should tackle?

If anyone has done it, please post how hard the install was and and complication's that might arise..

Thanks,
Erick

Almost mirror image

First, your GC looks almost like mine, except for the tires, Revos on mine, and I also have some other upgrades, (see my gallery). But what will the shift kit do for you? Won't help when you off-road will it? Improve gas mileage? Just wondering. Thanks.

If you can do your own lift then you should be able to do a **** kit with instructions.

BTDT.
Its really pretty easy, just make sure you have the time and a clean working environment. And I'm an advocate of Redline C+ fluid for re-fill....but thats just me.
Nice results.

I'm sure what you are talking about but his (and yours) tranny needs ATF+4 fluid.
