BD Power 68RFE Performance Transmission

2007.5-2012 6.7L Dodge Cummins with 68RFE Automatic Transmission



The marrying of the 68RFE transmission in a Dodge is almost as important as the marrying of a Cummins in a Dodge.  For YEARS, Dodge has put lackluster transmissions behind the Cummins powerhouse, and have regrettably developed a poor reputation for it.  When the 2007.5 6.7L was released, it came featuring the 68RFE, and it was proven to be a good choice.  This new six speed automatic has proven itself to be able to handle a TON more abuse compared to its predecessors.  But with any transmission, it has its limitations. 

There are many of those whom have already pushed the limits of their transmission with performance enhancements and hauling heavy loads that know all too well how much is too much for the 68RFE.  BD transmissions are designed to take on what most 68RFE owners are looking for - responding with smooth sharp shifts to keep the engine in the torque range required.

BD has done extensive research to determine the failure points of the 68RFE and to correct them.  For instance, BD's 68RFE pumps have a new regulator valve design, and along with a new valve body separator plate and pressure control module, can deliver up to 250 PSI clutch apply pressure.  This provides 150% MORE holding force above stock, in order to help prevent clutch slippage.  Also, BD's 68RFE Electronic Pressure Controller dynamically adjusts the hydraulic apply pressures based on APPS, which is used in governing engine loads and responsiveness through transmission gear selection.  the module's dynamic control ramps up in the much larger sweep right up to 250 PSI mainline pressure as needed dynamically.  This is NOT accomplished with any other aftermarket engine tuner.

All the clutch packs and drums have new machined designs with the maximum amount of heat/energy/capacity in mind.  Special machining has been done to the second gear piston to incorporate additional thick as stock clutch fiber and steel plates.  The fourth gear apply piston has been modified to accept new heavier BILLET retainer and a steel girdle is applied to strengthen the piston and give a broader apply area.

The low and reverse sprag clutch with dog-bone style dawgs that bind and wedge themselves into destruction are also replaced with a BD EXCLUSIVE, heavy duty constructed cam and roller style one-way clutch, preventing these explosive failures.
   
Each transmission is dyno tested and comes with BD's heavy duty deep sump aluminum transmission pan to add strength to the case preventing flexing and internal oil leakage.

BD has also matched their proven Triple Torque Force Converter to this application.  It's one piece billet cover prevents warping and trapezoid teeth hold the clutches that provide THREE TIMES the holding power over stock units, resulting in less friction wear and no rattling.  BD's own cast stator offers the ultimate torque multiplication and hits the target fluid coupling speed.

The larger input shaft of the 68RFE will handle the shock of the Triple Torque Force 3-clutch engagement, but if you are demanding more power with less risk, we recommend a billet input shaft.......broken shafts are NOT covered under the warranty program.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!

The electronic controls of the 68RFE and 6.7L Cummins combination makes the replacement of the transmission too complex for the back yard mechanic or small shop to perform - special scanners, gauges, tooling and flushing machines are REQUIRED to get the job done right within the warranty specifications without instant failures occurring.  In order to receive ANY warranty or technical support, the installer MUST fill out BD's Diamond Dealer questionnaire, shown in the PDF link below, and be able to provide proof (sending pictures) that they have access to a transmission flushing machine and an approved scanning tool.  Finally, once the installation is complete, the installer must fill out and fax back in the Data Sheet, shown at the bottom of the installation file, shown below:
Diamond Dealer Questionnaire: Data Sheet:

Finally, in order to receive ANY warranty or technical support, you must also install a new BD torque converter at the time of transmission installation.  We have made this a separate item in the drop down menu for those that have recently purchased the torque converter.

*NOTE:  This transmission is for standard body/frame trucks with the 68RFE transmission, NOT cab and chassis vehicles which feature the Aisin transmission.


CORE CHARGES – PLEASE READ

LOWER 48 STATES
We give you the option of deferring the upfront core charge for transmissions shipped within the lower 48 states.  The core must be returned within 21 days or your credit card will be charged for the full core amount.

ALASKA/HAWAII/INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

For purchases out of the lower 48 states an upfront core charge is REQUIRED, please call if you have any questions.

SHIPPING POLICY – PLEASE READ

Due to the size and weight of transmissions, they cannot be shipped through traditional couriers, such as UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc. and MUST be shipped via truck freight.  For this reason, we cannot offer free shipping on transmissions.  However, we do offer a service for each of our BD transmission sales that involves us coordinating the shipment of your core transmission back to BD, taking out the guess work for you.  So how it works is we charge an upfront flat rate charge at the time of sale for shipping BOTH ways.  We have also broken down the shipping charges as to whether we are shipping to a commercial or residential address.  It is drastically less expensive to ship to and from a commercial address, so we recommend having it shipped as such.  The commercial address does NOT need to be a service shop, it can be nearly any commercial address to take advantage of the cost savings.  Please choose from the drop down menu as to what type of address the transmission will be shipping to and from.  Finally, once your core transmission is ready to be picked up, you just need to give us a call with your original order number and the core tag on the transmission, and we’ll take care of the rest.  As always, if you have any questions, give us a call or send us an e-mail.
