96DodgeRam1500 is on a distinguished road

Yea i know about the 45, 46, and 47 RH and RE transmissions. The H is for hydraulic shifted transmissions. The E is for electronic shifted transmissions. The only difference in these trannys is different solenoids, sensors, so and so forth. I have been in a 47RE when i had my 96 Cummins while it was out for a full rebuild and there are no other shift solenoids other than 2 mounted in a bracket. Those 2 are just OD and LU (or 3rd and OD) whichever you want to call them. My 46RE now is no different. Same trans.. just the little brother of the 47RE. Now the 48RE may be fully electronic but the ones before that are not. If anything search online for a shift solenoids and find a pack of 4 of them that go in these transmissions. No hard feelings but I know about these transmissions and Ive delt with them 5 dodges. Gas motors and diesels. And no there is no difference just because of the motor. Ive been in all of them. I just had a brain fart in that original thread. thats why i said i was an idiot. But if you have a 2nd gen dodge then next trans service take a good look at it while the pan is off. Take off the valve body if you want too. It wont hurt anything. But you wont find anything else other than a 2 solenoid shift pack.
