What motor do have? The reason I am asking is that transmission is only rated for 1400 ft lbs of torque as for transmission it self 13 speed is the only one I prefer to run. I bought this last truck with a 10 speed and that was the biggest mistake I ever made.

yup, i looked at factory build sheet, and this is the tranny put into this truck, 38000 rears and 3.90 ratio. I am just trying to do a little research on this trans, because I am replacing front diff with a lift axle, and changing my ratio to 3.36. Unfortunately, the more I dig for info on this trans., the less I like it. Especially when I go to put a powerbox on it, etc. I assume an 1800 rated tranny is more along the lines of what I will need/want....thoughts?

I have a fro 15210c 10 speed. With the full pp tune. They tell me over 2000lb ft of torque at 700 plus hp. Been going three years with zero problems. Its all about the way you take off from a stop is the only trouble with high torque. My trans is rated at 1500 lb ft. But if you drive with common sense and not like a company truck that looks like the cab id coming off the frame when taking off no problem. If you do get rid of the 13 you have i would love to have it. I agree it should be a crime to build a truck with anything less than a 13. I hate the 10. To far between gears. 13 or 18 much more driveable
