I was at MayMadness a couple years ago and Stan Gozzi the head West Coast Warranty Rep for Chrysler was asked about the Aisin trans behind the 6.7 Cummins he said "they don't break".

I regularly pull with the 5.7, 3.92, 8spd combo and it- so far- is the best towing half ton I have ever owned. Loaded I am aroung 55-5700lbs. It keeps the engine where it needs to be, does not rev through the roof pulling grades, and the select shift keeps the combo stuck like a magnet when descending grades. VERY stout cooling system on these Rams as well.
My previous F150 with the 6 speed couldn't hold a candle to this. I am not brand bashing or brand loyal, but it's a great combo so far. BIL is a tech with a large dealership. So far liitle or no trouble with them other than the expected things that can sometimes happen with any mass produced item.

Smile 8 0r 10 speeds ???

Well, think my only concerns between an 8 or 10 speed might be the strength and longevity of the transmission when it comes to towing. Will be interesting to see. As for the Ram and the 8 speed, if it will hold in the Charger with over 700hp, it, you would think, hold with the demands in the 2500 and 3500 series trucks with the 6.4 gas. Also, even with 8 or 10 speeds, the differential gear ratio is still important depending on the intended usage. As of today, I think a lot would be accomplished with some computer re programming. They could definitely do better, especially on the 6 speed behind the 6.4 gas.
