I couldn't pass it up, the transmission needs to come out to have the pump seals replaced but I couldn't resist the weather and a chance to take it out and charge the battery. I haven't started it in over a month and with the timing locked out at 38* it takes a little while to warm up and it is a little on the lean side when it is cooler outside.

It was hard to take a video with one hand while shifting a manual shift automatic and I also had my little girl with, she loves the truck and in the video where I romp on it in 2nd you can hear her giggling. I also missed the shift to drive on the romp because I wasn't using the ratchet.

Here is a video of it warming up:

Here is a little short video going down the road a little piece:

Here is the video romping on 2nd gear, this was also only up to about 5,500 which is when she really starts to pull and redline is 7,000 but with the little one in there I don't like to take chances.
