And you once swore a 5.9 was a Big Block.
Click the link for the whole write-up, or read here for the main point of the article on Dodge Ram 1994-2001:
"A transmission temperature control system was standard on Ram pickup with the 47RH transmission and optional with the 46RH. The electronic transmission control unit could shift to third gear and engage the converter clutch if transmission oil temperature reached its upper limit. A temperature sensor in the cooler line to the radiator provided the signal; it also controlled a warning lamp on the instrument panel which would light if the downshift didnít lower transmission fluid temperatures."
The option was whether it had a towing package, which was usually part of the 2500 and 3500 package, possibly a special order option on the 1500.
As for what "we" should recommend, I will make my own recommendations.
