I am looking for a new truck, Aisin is the what I am leaning toward. Those 68RFEs seem so hit and miss. Randy seems to have beat on his Aisin pretty good before it finally failed from what I gather. I am not looking for high HP or anything, just solid towing reliability.

I'm continuing to be unimpressed with tuned 68's. These newer Rams are some of the most capable and we'll packaged trucks but the I couldn't be satisfied with the 68 personally.

For what applications?

A good tuned 68 is a nice work/play trans.

A buddy of mine has a 2015 Aisin that was just "tuned". The truck runs good but if its pushed hard in the lower gears its activating traction control and cuts the power way back, like less than stock. The tuner told him it was an issue with those trucks, is that always the case?

If you were just going to the track, I bet you could splice it so the ECM only reads one wheel speed sensor. Then it'd never see traction breaking.

I just pulled the trigger on an '18 with the Aisin. So far I enjoy how it drives/shifts, but haven't had it long enough yet to form an informed opinion on it (truck has 77 miles on it and have put ~20 of them on it). Haven't towed/hauled anything yet. It reminds me of my parents 5 Series BMW in sport mode in terms of shift feel/quality (firm and decisive), for whatever that's worth.

Hopefully there is tuning available by the time the warranty is up or the emissions bs gets too annoying.
