Ram doesn't need a 10 speed transmission until cummins12V98 buy's one and then the raves begin. You know the drill! [emoticon]


He is waiting for Ram to come out with SuperDuty style mirrors, before he gets a new truck. Then he'll say those Ram antlers are for hanging on the wall! [emoticon]

So, anyone else want to join the entertainment?? [emoticon]

"Also, by offering the Aisin (which has the same 6-speeds as the 68RFE"

Technically true but the fact is the AISIN has lower starting gears and easily get's my 35k rolling on steep grades.
Yes, I know. However, the "average Joe" only sees and/or appreciates the "6-speeds" and doesn't get into the technical stuff like the Aisin's lower starting gears. If it ain't on the window sticker, most of the time it's a moot point. That was my point in saying they both "have the same 6-speeds"---'cause that's all the average Joe is concerned about.

If Ram offered the average consumer the choice between an Aisin 6-speed or an off-the-shelf, proven 10-speed tranny for the same price (highly unlikely due to the Aisin's high cost), IMO the 10-speed would still easily outsell the Aisin by a very wide margin. Only a technically savvy person with a particular interest in MTBF under severe conditions might possibly go with the Aisin 6-speed in this scenario.

Cummins12V98 is a good sport but on a serious note ([emoticon]) he must have took a vacation from marketing the Ram/Cummins platform since their sales numbers have slipped.

The last check bounced so I figured I would give GM and Ford a chance. [emoticon]
