Wont know until I have some seat time.  But I do like the 2" belt and the release buckle better.  I might move the shoulder harness mount,  maybe...

2) side nerf bars

3) rear bumper / spare tire mount

That thing did awesome for first day out, went out and came back under it's own power.  sick ride, looks like it's going 100mph even when it's parked.

Completed:

1) Side nerf bars added and tested.

2)Rear brake lines replaced and rerouted with protection added.


Working on:

Shifting / Rev limit problems.

After some hots laps in 4lo and 4hi,  I noticed that the tranny shifts perfect in 4hi.
In 4lo the tranny will hold 1st until 4500 RPM and sometimes beyond (rev limit)

I looked through my wiring diagrams and found that the NP241C has a ball switch that shorts to ground when the case is in low range. This signal is sent to the PCM to to tell the tranny it has adjusted shift points.   




I also think my fuel pump is failing. >:(  It was NEW...

When the PCM or VCM 4WD-low input signal (circuit 1694) is high (approximately 12 volts) the computer will assume the truck is in a range other than 4WD-low and will command the shift points based on the truck being in 4WD-high or 2WD-high. If the truck is really in four-low, the upshifts will be late for the given throttle opening. In addition, the truck will exhibit overly sensitive forced throttle downshifts.
In each case the truck will exhibit conditions which will be objectionable to the customer, but will not set any trouble codes (1993-1995 models).
