  1. Why convert it to manual when you already spent money on repairing it and once repaired auto will last twice as long

  2. Gen 3 Ultra Shift reman is $525. Disassembly and assembly takes 1 hr at the most. So, no, it is not $1000. $600 total. If you put a harness- $350-400 more

  3. Nothing complicated about this setup. I just wish an XY shifter kit with in-cab electronic shift controller existed to retrofit older Fuller transmissions. It's still a manual transmission, I still control the clutch, but instead of a stick, I could use an electronic controller inside cab to initiate upshifts/downshifts. It would not be an automated shift but just replacing physical stick with electronic controller which could be mounted to dash, steering wheel column, or even side of drivers seat. It seems awfully stupid to upgrade from a Fuller Advantage 10-speed manual to the Ultrashift Plus 10-speed autoshift when they both are the same damn physical transmission.

  4. Where in Chicago you guys located, my truck needs transmission repair.

  5. I got a question
    I have a 2009 freightliner cascadia with sleeper, and my transmission won't shift from 1st to 2nd gear in a timely manner.
    It will shift but it will take longer than before.
    It has the paddle shifter on the steering colum. With the auto or manual shifting on the paddle.
    Once the truck is running hot it quits,but in the morning does it.
    What can that be causing that?
    How can I fix it?
    Any suggestions?
    It has the automatic shifter!!!!

  7. I have a 2005 Freightliner Century Class S/T, Detroit 60 series smartshift with the clutch pedal with no fault codes . When I first start it ,then put it in gear it shift fine I can drive for hours. When I need to take a break turn it off . then try to get it to go into gear it won't. I would have to sit for a while and then it will go into gear and drive for hours. Do the XY Shifter suppose to display fault codes?
