    Check your transmission fluid. When the fluid is low and you shift into gear the motor will die. Whoever done your tranny probably forgot to tighten a line or something. Good luck and Welcome to the GMTC, good to have you aboard.

    I have also seen that happen when the valve body is plugged.

    Welcome to the site. I'm sorry that happened right after getting a new trans. Sounds like you've put some miles on that truck. When you get a chance, post some pictures up so we can all enjoy it as well.
