Yep should be. They're trying to fly it under the radar so we'll see. Its not set in stone, but they'll most likely be able to fic it. If not, I'll take it to a trans shop, parents will pay and I have to make payments to them. Trying to avoid that one. I hate owing my parents. What I do know is I miss my truck :( parts are coming in for it and I have nothing to do with them.

They told you worn out soft parts? I would have asked to see them, parts dont just get worn out and soft on a 3 year old transmission for no reason.
