Jeff can get it to his yard on a towbar or his wrecker. I could get it moved to Louisiana on a trailer this weekend

So give him a call. He's in Hattiesburg

I'm paranoid about the transmission. she wasent pulling right. I was in mode. in 5th she started slowing down. I pulled over quick. she shifted hard in 1st and 2nd gear. It has to be low. Something is leaking. She went 500 miles before i had problems. I'm tempted to go back to Picayunne with oil, top it off and see what happens. that's a 3 hr drive for a gamble. crap. The another 5 hrs of driving back if it works.
Does it still have motor oil in the transmission or has some one changed it to transmission fluid (red) if its still oil find any where you can gen get 15/40 make sure its full drive it till it starts to warm up pull over let it cool for a while limp home in 50 mile jumps if it feels ok to drive but if not it will cost like hell if you shell the tranny its a hard decision worst case park it in a walmart or truckstop and get a ride home then you have time to make a less costly decision

I'm currently home in Louisiana 3 hrs from the truck. I'm very tempted to make that trip tonight. 3 hrs isn't far. Take a gamble
