Question No flaming allowed......

I am looking at a Mega cab Laramie 4x4 to gain more interior room, and to gain the Cummins. I wanted 4.10 gears (the truck will be lifted) with the heavy duty 6 speed. Unfortunately, you can only order the 4.10 gears with the four speed auto. :LAME: Does any of you Dodge/Cummins fellas know anything about the new 4 speed auto and its reliability? :shrug: :thanks: Too bad I can't get my TorqShift hooked up to the Cummins!!!

What gears does the 6 spd. come with? If you are going with big tires, it may not matter, your final ratio may still be close to the same.

No flaming from me. I looked at the M-cab earlier in the week and its just huge. I just wished they would have released the long box/dually version at the same time. The shorter box just won't do for pulling my fiver.

The newer version of the auto is more stout then the last version. What size tires are you going to put on.

I prefer 37s on a 6" lift!!! :evil:

I never did it on my 6-OH because I was "concerned" about reliability problems...........and THEN the Mega Cab came out!!!!! :Thumbup:

I've heard the auto is pretty good, although mine sure does shift strange - I've beat the hell out of it for about 1000 miles, seems alright, but like I said there's some weird stufdf with this one if you compare it to the Torqshift. The 48RE is like a CVT, it stays at 2000rpms and acclerates

Cummins, Duramaxes, and Powerstrokes - some of each
Newest: 08 King Ranch - 8" Rize, 20" Monsters, 5" straight pipe, Spartan, Alien Patrol, etc.

From what I have read, they have the same issues with the 48RE as they did with the 47RE. I wouldn't own a auto backed diesel after my 99.

As for the gearing...the G56 is geared lower in OD than the 48RE...the NV5600 and the 48RE were nearly identical.

I had 37"s on mine till a month ago. I only went to 35"s becuse of the cost. A extra $100 per tire. If it wasnt for that I would of got me another set. I didnt have a problem and I have a auto. If you are willing to opt for a auto than I say go for it. :Thumbup:
