There is a TSB out to ONLY USE Mercon V, and NOT to use the multi-purpose ATFs!

I would say the cut cooler tube is a fatality of doing your body lift.......

I highly doubt that since the cooler and lines aren't mounted to the body so they don't move when you do a body lift.

No I'm pretty sure Bob is right, when I lifted the body it pulled the lines tighter than normal and I didn't move it so it was loose enough. Oh well live and learn, the bumper is right in the way of the hose I need to take off so i have to find some way around it.

Oops, that sucks. Hopefully it will be fine when re-filled as long as it wasn't driven like that much.
I watched a buddies superduty transmission overheat when offroading in the Nevada desert (at around 8000 feet). Dumped a ton of fluid out before we noticed it on the trail.
We added a ton of fluid to it, and all was fine again after that.

Great news Trent! When you dropped the pan, was there much debris on the magnet in the pan?

I just flushed mine a couple weeks ago, and the pan, and magnet were clean at 166K miles, the last time I flushed it was at 84K.

Not much at all, surprisingly. I'm pretty sure it was changed when I got it at 50k

You transferring the F90 to your new truck . . . ? Glad you got it figured out, I was thinking the fluid level was the culprit.

I know that I got a full size cause I actually do need one. The Ranger is just not big enough for work and my lifestyle.

Yeah 4 door is a necessity. I looked at the Chevy's but they just don't do it for me.

x2.
I really hate those trucks with a passion. I hate the way the look, drive, feel. I hate the (lack of) ground clearance, weak front suspension, blah blah blah...

Not to speak for everyone else, but I just needed more room. I'm getting the same fuel economy with 35's as I did with 33's on the ranger at the sport trac. I have four real doors, seating for 4-5 adults without having to eat the dash to get the rear seat legroom, can haul and tow significantly more weight when I need to, get better ride/handling, and I'm pretty sure the turning radius is even less. Atleast it feels like it. It's not hard to park or maneuver in tight spots either.
The only thing that I feel like I lost is the "smallness". The ranger and sport trac got around well off road because they were smaller, but I think the F150 will do just fine, only with a bit more "pin-striping". I would like to get another ranger/explorer/BII some day for playing around off road, but it wouldn't do me much good where I live right now.
