the only reason to switch, maybe for the front suspension difference,these 2 truck can pull the same load and the rest of the drivetrain is about equal

I don't think the standard 68RE trans is up to the Allison. The Aisin might be.

So I have been browsing through the threads and I've seen you started a couple. You're trying to decide between keeping your LBZ or getting either a LMM or a 6.7 CTD.

First off what do you want to do with this new truck? And are you one of those guys who gets a new rig every year or 2? Start with those.

Well so far the 68RE seems to be bulletproof...no recall or anything negative yet! On the other side dodge is the only one to offer a standard 6 speed manual on his diesel trucks. And this one has nothing to do with the old 6 speeds. It is way overkill for what it has to do...it`s use by mercedes on 5 to 10 tons trucks over in Europe and it is trouble free .
