Hello and welcome aboard the ForumZ. Great to have you. I am not sure about upgrades for a transmission, so I will let the pros handle this one. I do know that when I had a tuner on my truck, the gears shifted so much more smoothly and rapidly, but I WASN'T TOWING. Hang tight and someone with vast more knowledge on this subject will chime in. Thanks and see you around!

I see you already had a newbie thread, so I moved your post over here where we can hopefully get you the answers you need.

What kind of towing issues are you having? What kind of gearing does your Ram have?

Shouldn't be any issues with the transmission. Are you using the tow/haul mode (ie light on)?

You bet there is...add a transmission oil cooler. If you already have one, you should be good unless you are planning on towing beyond the rated capacity for the truck.

I already have the tow package on the truck ,i think that cooler is there ,it just doesnt seem to want to shift into 4th gear fast enough the thing is screaming at about 4000 rpm then finally shifts. This is only when towing though other wise it all seems fine.Would a tuner really help this?
