The story I got today is that the 8 speed tranny is a completely different animal than the 6 speed. In fact I was told that had the truck been a 6 speed the swap would have been flawless and id be driving my new truck right now, the 8 speed apparantly has some software in it that they say they can't change. I still don't buy it, I believe thats what the guys at the dealership were told but I don't believe that the transmissions are programmed only for a specific gear ratio. They have to be able to change it, just can't imagine that the trannys are built in Germany for a specific gear set. They gotta be able to assign that gear ratio when they install the transmission.
If ya can't Dodge it, Ram it!!!
