So, the TCM went out in the 03. Found a re-manufactured unit and it's on the way. The funny thing is, been driving it back and forth to work in trans limp mode for a month now... It's either 2nd or 3rd gear been driving it in. Just taking it easy on the take off. 2600rpm's at 50mph. The trans isn't overheating at all. 130 to 140 degree's. I've started driving the 05 back and forth from work now. Got to get some engine break-in mile on the 05. She's running good.

Still driving the 03 with 1st and 3rd gear around town... Haven't had time to actually take a good look at the 03.
I'm surprised the truck is still moving.. I bet if you were to take the RPMs up a little bit you will get a miss shift like you were shifting it manually and missed the gear.

Driving in 3rd gear most of the time. Only used 1st gear to drive up my driveway from a dead stop. The 03 has 4:56 gears. Moves easy in 3rd gear. Been driving it back and forth from work in town up to 50-55mph. 2600 to 2800 rpm. The trans only gets up to 140-150 degrees. Work is seven miles away. Light throttle only. Stock 05 trans...
