A truck with a 47re was not in his price range. My Good friend with a 96 dodge had the trans rebuilt and it now has about 20,000 or less on it and the trans is already going to shit. His is only making around 60 hp more than stock and all he does is drive it and maybe tow a little. It is what it is man. He is a ford guy. Just like me.

96 dodge would be a 47re. What they realy need is an updated converter and valvebody or shift kit to apply more pressure and hold it. My 96 only has about 120 over stock, and the converter is getting weak. I plan on a rebuild with a decent converter and dunrite shift kit. Please do your friend a favor and talk him into an upgrade when he is due to rebuild his.

If you rebuild a trans and leave it stock whats the point that throwing away money, dodge trans needs help in stock form, but put any light duty trans behind a cummins and it will tear it up.

I agree about the 7.3. Owned a cargo van with one in it. Fricking awesome fuel mileage I miss that van. Friend of mine has one with over 300k. Still going strong.
