So i was wondering is it just me or does everyone have an issue putting there srt10 into reverse. Its really hard for me to get it into reverse and even sometimes into 2nd and 3rd. I have 27k miles on the truck and was wondering does it sound like I need a new clutch.

Are you a RC or QC? If QC it might just need linkage adjustment, had to have that done to mine, was having a hard time getting it into park sometimes

sometimes is the most obvious things that we overlook...hope that's it, although, if it is, it's a wonder why it left?!?!?

I had trouble shifting @ WOT.A fluid change in the tranny cured mine.Might be worth a try first.

If you go with a CF clutch and Viper master and slave cylinder try Roe Racing.They have the complete kit including the shims you need to mount the new master cylinder.I bought mine off another forum member.Had to make the shims and that slowed us down for a couple of hours.

I just bought an RC with 85k miles. I’m not mechanically inclined. I’m having trouble with reverse popping out and grinding every time I put it in reverse. How/where do you check the trans fluid? Thanks.

The shifter has a plastic cup connected to the trans. Mine was torn witch made shifting bad. Look for a brass replacement for the Tremec. It will improve your shifting. Remove the boot, unbolt the shifter and replace the cup. Grease the brass cup.

My buddy recently experienced this reverse issue on his new SRT10 project. We'll check out the trans plastic cup after we finished installing the bumper and winch plus the bushwacker fender flares on the Wrangler tomorrow.
