RE: Torqueflite Pushbuttons



Gary H & P -
It's Ultimate Transmission, 220 W 37th St, Garden City, ID 83714, Phone 208-631-2133.  Dave, Matt, and Casey there are quite knowledgeable on Mopar stuff.  It's a large shop (I think they have 9 service bays), and they work on classics, customs, racers, rods, and beefy truck trannys too.  We are fortunate to have this resource in the Boise area.  They pulled out all stops for me.

Yes, thanks for the update Bill. Glad you got the issue solved! 

Also, seconds on that Mopar-friendly shop name. I can add it to the "vendors" page on the 62-65 site.
