    What was your indication? What did the truck act like in that period of time?

    My dad was adjusting the rocker when he felt it really loose and told me to turn the truck off

    That's when you're slamming gears in a manual. You go for, say a WOT 2-3 upshift, and instead nail yourself a WOT 2-1 downshift. It's not cheap. Been there done that, will probably do it again and hate myself before I die.
