How does the allison work? I read in peterson's 4wheel and offroad that the six speed has one more tube in the valve body that engages the right combo of clutches. I have no idea cuz I drive a cummins. I'm just curious. :confused:

That is why I would rather have a manual trans. Brakes last longer, less tranny failure. Seems to be the best method of moving a vehicle around. When I was a well driller they told me Dextron is the worst oil to get on your hands and on the ground= in the water. Nearly every car on the road has an auto tranny.KY

I got mine because my son was selling them for more than a year. The employee discount put his wages lower than livable, he quit. I did not like the way the v-8 ran when I test drove it. It would have been better if there was a manual trans to try, but the closest one was 400+ miles away. One other thing I don't like is you can't shut the outside air off, the Dodge cars and trucks you can. Looks like the fuel will be HIGH this summer, have a good one.KY
