You just have to be careful when backing into a relatively level area from a steeply inclined street. You will really be torquing the frame and may drag the rear bumper. My driveway is not what I...

So sad, 5 minutes of my life that I will never get back. Would have made a great "tiny house" and cost about 1/25th as much as a new shed on a trailer.

If it's not Transynd, DO NOT switch to Transynd. Better (and cheaper) to use regular Dextron II and change every 2 or 3 yrs. The Transynd CAN NOT handle the heat of the retarder.
