Know this pickup?

Recommended Posts

I need to get an automatic transmission so have been looking at used pickups. Does anyone know this pickup? Programmer, DPF delete, lift kit, wheels, etc. I don't need someone else's headache.

Thanks.

Hi. I saw that it came from the north, but the speedometer is in Miles Per Hour.

I keep trying to ignore out but the pickup keeps talking to me, calling me back to look at it some more. It also has a bad grear ratio at 3.42...

Older trucks from up here had to have a speedo change. 

The Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba vehicles are the least prone to rust.

 

Head east and look out! We call them Easter Bunny’s

Thought I read somewhere that only the “heavy duty” manual transmission trucks had different gear choice available 

sure as heck could be wrong on that , but the OLD mind says just 3.42’s

I didn’t look at the ad til now

if it’s original Alberta truck, I’d be surprised if it had any rust.

Only truck with a DRW axle have the option to select what axle ratio you want.

3.42's with Aisin is a whole different animal.  First gear in the aisin is much lower than the 68rfe

When did the Aisin transmission get used in the Dodge pickups?

The pickup in the picture is a 68rfe

 

aisins were in cab and chassis trucks since 07.5, and optional in 3500 trucks since 2013.

I was thinking it was in newer pickups and then only behind the HO engines for the first year or two.

Your close the Aisin is in 2013 and up 3500 Rams that are designated Heavy Duty. Note not all are Aisin!

not including cab and chassis like Mr. Smith said. 

Reminds me of a Judas Priest song! 

 

Just look for the trans fluid dipstick on the drivers side of the engine compartment. That's an easy way to know its a Aisin

I've used the heck out of that link. Thank you very much. There is no need to guess how the rig was built!

What should I look at on a 2011 Megacab 4x4 loaded with everything?

It it's supposed to have a 3"lift. It has 20" rims with 325/75-20 toyos. The lift needs to go away along with the tires and wheels.

3.73 gear ratio limited slip rear differential

68RFE transmission

It has not been deleted.

It has a goose neck ball receiver and spray in bed liner.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Here are some pics.

It also has Firestone bags with compressor.

It has an LED light bar in the front bumper.53447da57e3c3f3cc072b05b0dbb7f76.jpgf56c08694989f5ca5e5942db67bd5c4e.jpg8b02f0a862195a3b13aa6c2e3631d43c.jpg

I maybe wrong but I believer 2011 is one of the years that's famous for poor mileage.  Not sure if they are bad even after a delete.

Early 6.7’s netted biggest mpg results

I didn’t see a huge difference when I deleted my 2012.

And even less on the 2016.

Only reason I deleted the ‘16 was because all the emissions equipment took a dump at 88,000 miles. Cheaper to delete than replace.

Thank you. What kind of mileage a empty and loaded might it get when deleted? When not deleted?

Rob, I have a friend with a 2012. I've heard from him 11 and 12. This is second hand information so not me doing the math.

 

But everytime I see him his complaint is about the MPG.

 

He hasn't deleted it.
