'94-'02 automatics

How are the Dodge automatic transmissions that came in the '94-'02 Cummins? I'm looking to find a Cummins, prefearably a '98.5+ 24valve/manual, but if I find an automatic equipped truck I want to know how they are. The truck will mainly be used as a daily driver and occasionally pull 2-3 atv's but nothing heavier than that. The truck will probably get exhaust right away with possibility for more mods down the road.

1997 Ford F-250HD Super cab/Short bed 4x4
7.3L Power Stroke Diesel
5-speed manual transmission

2001 Dodge Ram 2500HD 2WD
Standard Cab/Long Bed
SLT Laramie
5.9L Cummins 24Valve Turbo Diesel (Vin code-7)
NV5600 6-Speed Manual Trans.

The more mods the quicker it will die...
Some hold on quite a while and just act really odd, while others simply give up earlier.

It's all in how it was cared for, and how it was/will be driven. If you plan on putting more power to the motor, spend a bit on the trans, that will help it live another day; until it goes, and needs a full rebuild anyway.

Short term, your probably just fine. My recommendation however, would to be start a small savings account, that when the trans does go, you are ready for it right away.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...
