If there is one thing that could be considered to plague the Dodge Cummins powertrain, it has been the use of their four speed transmissions over the years. The 47RH that debuted in 1994 were adequate at best, but considering the low output of these engines, they faired relatively well at stock power levels and moderate towing. Several years later, the 47RE was released, and again, with a stock engine and light loads, they would last for 100,000-150,000 miles. However, with the ease of adding additional horsepower and the overall capability of these engines, truck owners routinely see failures prior to this mileage.
Fortunately, with the addition of several aftermarket upgraded components, the 47RH and 47RE transmissions can be built to handle substantially higher horsepower and larger loads, all while lasting considerably longer than the factory unit. For those that have either had a complete failure of the transmission or its simply time for an upgrade, we also offer complete transmission packages in various levels depending on the horsepower and use of the truck.
Whether you are just looking to keep transmission temperatures down with a double deep, finned transmission pan, or a full blown billet transmission, we’ve got you covered. And as always, if you need assistance in determining the correct parts for you and we would be happy to help.
