its too bad the dodge trans needs lots of hard parts as soon as you get up there in power.
the 5.9 cummins is in way more medium duty trucks!! than the other 2 engines. do some homework, go lift up the hoods of some medium duty or heavy duty semi's.
the 5.9 cummins has connecting rods the size of my forearm, and the powerjokes/durasnacks have little baby ones.
Cummins is a semi engine company! all they do is semi's and dodge's.
or anything else with a cummins engine in it.
any truck needs trans mods as soon as you get into building it.
my buddy w/ an 04 powerjoke, w/ a chip, filter, exhaust, toasted his auto tranny within a month! i know the allison trannys are supposed to be the shit, havent heard many bad things about them yet.
you dont see any Powerstoke only shops or Duramax only shops, because they cannot compete with the cummins
everyone, dont forget fordcummins.com
