I don't think I could do that in my truck.... My shifter has PRND then the +/- button on the gear selector to manually select gear 1-5. Also with the tow/haul button I believe it rearranges the gear ratios to the following:

Regular:
1st 3.00:1
2nd 1.67:1
2nd Prime 1.50:1
3rd 1.00:1
4th 0.75:1
5th 0.67: 1

Tow/Haul:
1st 3.00:1
2nd 1.67:1
3rd 1.50:1
4th 1.00:1
5th 0.75:1

So in that truck he shifts manually from 1-2, then manually from 2-3, then at 5k rpm he shifts down from 3-2, then at the trap he shifts up into D? How does it lock in 3rd by doing that? Is it a protective thing that will keep the engine from downshifting because of too high a rpm?
