Several places offer lock-up kits, priced about $100.00 or so, you can
order through Jegs, Summit, jagsthatrun, etc. Cheap way out is a toggle
switch, but you have to rember to unlock and lock it.
I've heard talk of guys going in and running wires from the 4rth gear
pressure switch to the TCC solenoid...seems like a good idea, only locks up
in OD, unlocks automatically when you downshift.
