    Nothing really wrong with the 6spd. Mine was pretty solid.

    Plenty of 6 speeds have gone over 200000 miles without issue. Maintenance is easier and cheaper and you have a dipstick. Check out the instructions on checking fluid levels on the 8 speed.

    You know wild one, you'd be a pretty cool guy if you could see fit to quit shitting on the 6 speed. Do you really feel the need to go that far out of your way to be a jerk? Let it go, buddy.

    Didn't you have your 8 speed fail?

    It was early 2018 until the 8 speed went quicker down the 1/4 mile than Matt's 545RFE.

    I get it. The 6 isn't the latest, greatest. As far as I'm concerned, the 8 is probably a fine tranny. But you've got it way overrated.

    Have a nice day.

    I don't shit on the 6 speed,RLJ,i just pointed out to you how it won't match the 8 speed in torque multiplication.It's the fact that FCA figures they can get away with using Canada as their dumping ground for anything older and a bit out of date.I think the last year for the 6 speed in the States was 15 ,while FCA thinks of Canada as a garbage pit that they can get away with dumping anything into.That's more the point and the one you guys are missing.I don't make any points about bashing the 5/6 speeds,unless you guys bash the 8 speed.Using Matts built to the nuts truck as a reference isn't really revelant,lets use Kyles bolt-on truck instead which is more in line with what most guys will be running,and it went 11.98's with an 8 speed,there isn't a 5/6 speed bolt-on truck that'll come close to Kyles bolt-on truck with an 8 speed.It wasn't until recently the 8 speed trucks started getting serious with mods,and look at what Matt Brown ran with just a whipple bolted to his. Another reference is look at how fast the new 5.0 Fords are running with their 10 speeds,they aren't making any more power then the 5.7's but a stock 5.0 shortbox regular cab with a 10 speed,will kick a stock regular cab 8 speed hemi's ass all day long at the track,and why,because it's got 2 more gears in it,to utlilize the torque multiplication factor,and keep the engine in it's sweet spot

    That's if you can get into the Ford with frozen doors, and I certainly wouldn't try racing one with bungies holding the door closed.
    I bought my truck for looks and usage not 1/4 mile results.
    I know lots of people that have had great success with the 6 speed Rams and would buy one again.
    So I don't think Canada is getting screwed. I would suspect that Canadian Dealerships are getting better incentives from FCA and the dealerships are making the decision to carry them... Not FCA screwing us.

    I wouldn’t pay RLJ any attention. He’s a verified troll and a hypocrite. Here’s a recent thread where he’s doing exactly what he’s accusing you of... His downfall is being miserably presumptuous...
