So it's only for HD Ram. Nothing for the Ram 1500.

This may not be related at all, but I heard dodge was going to have a flash to make the current 5 speed that has the 2nd prime gear into a 6 speed....no sure this would help at all as they are almost the same gear though...

I wish it's true. It would give us a better third gear then the new 65rfe and 66rfe.It sure would help around town.

545rfe
1-3.00
2-1.67
3-1.50 (second prime made into third)
4-1.00
5-0.75
6-0.67

65rfe, 66rfe and 68rfe
1-3.23
2-1.84
3-1.41
4-1.00
5-0.82
6-0.63



I don't know if a good tuner could actually make it work as a 6 speeds?

so is the 65rfe and 66rfe, and 68rfe the new 6 speed in the HD? I don't know but someone in another thread I read said that if you use the manual shift button to put the truck in gear, instead of "D", it adjusts the shift pattern as you show above, moving the second prime in place of third, and third in place of fourth, etc...

68rfe has been in the HD truck for a couple of years.

The 65rfe and 66rfe are the new transmission. From what i've read, 65rfe was suppose to be in the 1500 serie and 66rfe was for HD with Hemi engine.

Both 65rfe and 66rfe are 545rfe casing with 68rfe gears.

Anyway, that's the information i was able to get on internet.

65rfe = Reprogram 545rfe to use all 6 gears.
66rfe = 545rfe with 68rfe gear set.

so that means I could get a flash or something so my truck will use all 6 gears? This wouldn't have a negatives would it...?

I also saw somewhere that the 45rfe(4 speed) was able to be reflashed to be the 5-45rfe(5 speed)
