Dodge owners this one's for you

Nate Brekken  | Published on 12/8/2017

 
For years Strictly Diesel has repaired, serviced, and redone the 47-48 RE platform that comes in the Dodge 2500-3500 trucks from 1998.5-2007.
As of November we are now offering an overhaul/rebuilt unit from Strictly Diesel. These will now be done in house under our control and our warranty.  We have grown tired of the "well my neighbor knows a guy" that can overhaul and or rebuild these units, As well as our big aftermarket manufacturers who claim to build a Heavy Duty unit, but come so far from that when it comes to the longevity of the unit. Strictly Diesel recently purchased a 1999 Dodge 2500 to R&D with. This truck had a "recent" overhaul and was the perfect candidate to back up why we have so much troubles with the inexpensive and expensive rebuilds and overhauls.  Our teardown and inspection of this unit found serious end play issues on the input shaft, excessive clutch pack clearances on all clutch packs, worn bushings, gasoline light duty planetary assemblies - the list could fill up this page. After sorting things out, we put back in this unit what was supposed to be there, including some 47RE- 48RE goodies, new electronics and a new single disc torque converter. The results are pretty amazing - how a few simple parts, that were omitted, and supposed to be there, make a difference.  The shift quality and firmness is much improved, so you can seriously feel the torque the motor puts out now. We are confident that we can help our customers even better now that we are offering these units with complete overhauls. Strictly Diesel is here to help. No matter what the transmission is behind your diesel, we can help improve shift quality, performance, or just keep it maintained for you for the long road ahead. Visit us today at Strictlydiesel.com. give us a call at 623-582-4404, or stop by the shop for all your Diesel transmission needs.
