Good to know about the newer trannies sprintertech. If the Cab and Chassis trannies are better than the Alison, then why are they not making them avail on all HD Diesel models? That does not seem like smart marketing. (Maybe a mileage/emissions thing?) The Alison is avail on ANY Diesel Chevy offers. Grumble...

Side thought: I am surprised Aisin makes a good HD auto or manual tranny at all. They made junk ones for Jeeps for years, and that's all I've ever associated them with. I suppose I have to give them another shot (if they ever make it into regular Diesels Rams)
