Trans for towing
I have a 2000 Dakota, 5.9L. Started pulling an RV (23', 5K lbs with all my stuff in it). Used for contracting around the country. Now retired and traveling to State Parks. The 5.9 tow cap is 7K lbs. Dodge messed up not offering a 5 speed with the 5.9 and with a 1,000 rpm gap from 3rd to O.D. it's been tearing up the trans and rear end. Get a new truck? Not on my retirement funds. So I thought I'd check out Eagle Transmission ( 2233 N. Galloway, Mesquite) to see if it was worth saving. Let's see....Billet torque converter, Sonnax shift kit and some internal valve controls and settings (I don't understand it all) but I do have some mechanical background. Replaced rear with Eaton Posi-Trac (Eagle also). Beefed suspension to 3/4 ton. (Done at Thru-Way Spring while up in New York). Four corner H.D. with coil over rear Monroe. Total cost: $7K. For what Eagle did. It pulls awesome! No more slip, vibes or drive line shaking. They just saved me $35K over buying a new truck. These guys don't just show for work....they make it work.
