You didn't tow with it, but what did the previous owner do with it? You don't really have a way of knowing. It may have been almost permanently attached to a trailer.

If you bought it with 43k it qualified for one of the MaxxCare extended warranties if you bought it from a Ram dealership used. If not it is out of warranty.

Standard warranty on those was I think 3/36k, might have been 5/60k powertrain but you're outside the 5 years now.

I would suggest finding an independent transmission shop to do the work since you're outside of warranty. It'll be cheaper but I can't tell you how much.

Yea the last place i would go is the dealer if there is no warranty left.
