New member here, stumbled across this site while trolling for 545 info. I really want to slap a Procharger on my 09 1500 4x4 but the transmission question has stopped me dead for the moment. I've read until my eyes are about to bleed, so can anyone give me a straight answer- if I don't force downshifts under load then what is a reasonably priced reman that will hold up??
Welcome to the forum. Finding a trans for your needs isn't so much about which one at the right price as it is finding one that will indeed hold up period. Many of us choose to swap the 545 out to eliminate it's weaknesses.
I'm trying to work my way through the 60+ pages of that ATS thread now. I imagine it's gunna be way more money than I want to pay. I'm not going to run more than about 8lb, I'd rather burn through a 2k one and learn my lesson than spend 6k+ right off the bat. I'm Canadian too so our pesos aren't worth too many freedom dollars these days.
