O.D. Mystery solved

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but it may give a few of you a good chuckle.

I honestly didn't think my truck had an overdrive . The lettering is "almost" completely worn off of my shift handle. I say almost because the sun hit it just right while driving today and I saw a ghost of the lettering that used to be there. The button was stuck, so I never pushed it accidentally. I gave it a good push and lo and behold the O.D. disengaged.

Needless to say... This has answered several questions I have had. I was considering changing the gears.

I R Dumb
