Adjusting the bands is fairly easy. You'll need an inch/pound torque wrench, and some common tools like sockets and wrenches. Look up you truck's specific specs, the front band on most Cummins w/ 47/48R* is 1 7/8 turns. Loosen the lock nut, and tighten the adjuster to 72 inch pounds. Back it off by 1 7/8 turns. Tighten the lock nut. You are done. The rear band is much the same, IIRC 3 turns is spec on it. Only difference is that its inside the pan.

Edit: forgot to mention that the front band will affect the 1-2 shift, so if thats a problem as far as being crisp, the band could be the problem. Do NOT over tighten, as it also affects the 2-3 shift, and getting it too tight will cause problems.
