Transmissions have been hit or miss on these trucks. Both Sharadon and ATS make a "built" transmission, but even those have had trouble for some trucks. On the other hand, Sharadon has a 10 second ram and a couple low 11 second rams that run their stage 3 and have been for a while. I know of a few 4th gens with the ATS that seem to be happy with it, but have heard more bad then good.

Instead of droppng big money on a full tranny up front, I would start off with a Sharadon VB, a higher stall converter, deep tranny pan, and add a 1 ton cooler if your truck did not come with one already. Many guys are running this setup with great results and that is much cheaper than dropping $3-4k on a complete transmission.
