Few folks need to step away from the keyboards and get some fresh air....
Btw, a bit of misinformation as well, about how various trucks are equipped, floating around your argument gents.

Well our 2016 Ram 3500 DRW HO, Aisin and 3.73's we have owned just about 2.5 years, I use good quality DEF (another discussion)and change fuel filters on schedule. we have put 34,000 miles on since purchase, no issues yet.
I think going back to the CP3 was a good choice, and GM uses Denso injection pump. Ford insist on sticking with Bosch 4.2, not a great choice.


Huuummmm....

Take care of that 09 and drive it as long as you possibly can. I have a 12 Dodge that's very reliable and that's my plan. Craig

The 7.3L Godzilla gasser Ford comes with the same 10-sp tranny as the equivalent Powerstroke.



The 10R140 10 speed transmission is NOT the same between the 7.3L gas and the 6.7L diesel engines in Ford Super Duties.

Differences between Gas, Diesel, Pickup, and Chassis Cab versions of 10 speed 10R140
Individual clutch plates are dropped (deleted) from two clutch pack elements in the Gas version, hence the Diesel version has more clutch holding surface area than Gas version
Pinion gears are dropped (deleted) from two planetary gear sets in the Gas version
Diesel version has four pinion planetaries where the gas version has 3 pinion planetaries in two out of the four planetary gear sets in the transmission
The fluid capacity is a tenth of a quart less in the Diesel version, likely due to the additional space the two extra pinion gears and clutch plates occupy within the case
An auto Neutral in Idle mode is available in Chassis Cabs, that is not available in Pickups
The PTO provision must be ordered in Gas version, and in Pick Ups, regardless of engine
The PTO is standard in Diesel Chassis Cabs whether ordered or not (new for 2020)

Directly from the Ram Trucks site: 3500 and larger pickups and chassis-cabs are offered with the 6-speed Aisin automatic.

He probably means 3500 DRW and Chassis Cab trucks with the 6.4 use the Aisin AS66RC. [emoticon]

Are you saying the AISIN is not available in a 3500 SRW with the 6.4?

I would assume that includes 3500 SRW’s also.
