The O/D light started flashing shortly after i started driving the truck. It would flash randomly, sometimes just on the way to town, sometimes only on the way back home.
Mechanic pulled a code Torque Converter Clutch sticking...
Truck runs and drives fine.
Well i hadnt seen the O/D light come on in maybe 2-3 weeks now, i figured the bulb just burned out.
Well Monday it came on again on my way to town.
But since then ive made 2 other trips to town and it hasnt came back on.
Im really wondering if it has something to do with the O/D button on the shifter not working.
The truck is going into overdrive like it should.
Ive got close to 1,000 miles on the rebuilt engine now.

Going to have to swap the shifter mechanism and button this spring..
May end up rebuilding the transmission this summer...or swapping in the one im getting from Beau so i can rebuild it whenever.

Going to be ordering a custom steel bumper from Tactical Armor Group sometime next week.
I'm probably getting the winch mount bumper with the hitch receiver and some holes for lights.
It will look similar to this.

When i get home im gonna photoshop it onto my truck, to give me an idea.

I have an old front grille/brush guard, im going to cut up and weld up brackets to mount it to the bumper. I think it will look badass when im done.
Hard part will be deciding what color to bedline the bumper...red or black.

Red truck will be coming out of storage within 2 weeks.
I have my insurance set to go back to full on April 1st.

List of things to do to the red ranger this summer.

Work on custom front bumper, install it. Put old bumper onto the white truck.
Install explorer OHC.
Finish LED lighting inside.
Do headlight mod.
Get new lift shocks for the topper door.
Put on cab visor.
Work on building spare tire cage under bed.
Get dual exhaust.
Install new shocks.
